After performing an energy audit of the tour, JustGreen purchased carbon offsets to offset the carbon emissions for Florida Georgia Line’s first major headline tour. Florida Georgia Line’s sold-out HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES 2013 Tour included 32 cities nationwide. See the tour here at www.tuneinwithjustgreen.com. This is part of the year-long commitment JustGreen made to offset the carbon footprint of 4,000 Live Nation concerts across the country.
JustGreen also sponsored a nation-wide sweepstakes with Live Nation. Cassandra Estojak won a carbon neutral concert experience with breakout duo Florida Georgia Line. Cassandra and a guest flew to West Palm Beach, Florida to plant trees with the reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year before they took the stage at the Cruzan Amphitheatre.
“We had a great time meeting our lucky winner, Cassandra in West Palm Beach, planting a tree and learning more about JustGreen and how we can help spread awareness of the cause to help our planet,” said FGL’s Tyler Hubbard.
“We have offset 4,000 Live Nation concerts in 2013 including two complete tours -the Florida Georgia Line and Portugal. The Man,” says GP Manalac, EVP JustGreen. “Being able to work with amazing talent like Florida Georgia Line to help encourage the music industry and concertgoers to make greener lifestyle choices is a great opportunity for us all to make a positive impact on the environment.”
JustGreen Lifestyle is Live Nation’s exclusive carbon offset provider for consumable energies in their owned and operated venues, purchasing enough carbon credits to offset the emissions for 4,000 shows across the United States. The green partnership promotes Just Energy’s JustGreen carbon offsetting products to music lovers all across the United States and provides Live Nation with more than 55,000 tons of carbon offsets annually — which is equivalent to removing close to 11,000 cars off the road.
