Music: Pearl Jam do the ecolution

Band shoots for zero net emissions

Seattle rock icons Pearl Jam have steadily built up a significant arsenal in the fight for the environment over the years.

The group’s ultimate goal is an admirable, if lofty, one. Pursuing an ambitious, integrated strategy to clean up their act, the band will donate $100,000 to nine environmentally-conscious organizations, and they plan to eventually reach 0% net emissions for their tours and businesses.

In 2003, PJ pacted with Conservation International to offset 5,700 tons of CO2 emissions released from touring by establishing a protected area in Madagascar’s rainforest. And to cut down on those emissions in the first place, the band uses bio-diesel fuel B100 in all production trucks and tour buses. B100 reduces carbon monoxide emissions by approximately 50% and carbon dioxide by roughly 78%.

Pearl Jam seems bent on saving the world, but they maintain a focus on their local habitat of the Pacific Northwest by supporting primarily regional organizations.
