Fans took approximately 1,656 individual actions with local nonprofits at shows!
- 22,155 Single-use bottles eliminated at shows
- Single-use plastic bottles banned at most shows
- Water refill stations backstage and front of house
- Supplemental recycling backstage and on buses
- Battery donation and/or recycling

- Eco-friendlier products backstage and on tour buses

Partnering with nonprofit Musically Fed, Tame Impala and REVERB were able to facilitate the donation of 437 meals to people in need!
Working with local catering services at select venues, REVERB’s onsite coordinator collected unused food from backstage catering. A volunteer from Musically Fed then met with REVERB’s coordinator to collect and transport the food delivering it to food insecure people in the United States and Canada.
On this tour, food donations were made in:
Pittsburgh, PA • Toronto, ON • Brooklyn, NY • Boston, MA • Philadelphia, PA • Asheville, NC • Nashville, TN
#RockNRefill SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WASTE REDUCTION
A Single Bottle, A Huge Positive Impact
As part of the #RockNRefill partnership with Nalgene, REVERB provided custom-designed reusable water bottles for the Slow Rush Tour. In addition to providing bottles to band and crew, REVERB also made the bottles available for donation to fans in the Action Village.
REVERB also provided free water refill stations for fans front of house and ensured water refill stations were available for band and crew.
Together, these efforts resulted in the elimination of 22,155 bottles at shows on the tour.
- 10,688 Backstage
- 11,467 Front of House
LASTING POSITIVE IMPACT
2,983 Fans donated for a #RockNRefill reusable Nalgene bottle on Tame Impala’s Slow Rush tour.
If every fan used their bottle just twice a week for one year instead of using single-use plastic bottles:
- Each fan would eliminate 208 bottles
- Together, that would eliminate 620,464 bottles
- Lined up top-to-bottom, 620,464 bottles would be about 80 Miles long! That’s over 3 marathon lengths!
