Reverb is a non-profit environmental organization that educates and engages musicians and their fans to promote environmental sustainability. It was founded by environmentalist Lauren Sullivan and her musician husband, Guster guitarist/vocalist Adam Gardner.[1]

Reverb's greening services include carbon neutral concerts and venues; biodiesel for vehicles and generators; waste reduction; biodegradable catering products; recycling; green bus supplies and cleaners; energy efficiency; green contract rider; eco-friendly merchandise; green sponsorship; and on site and on-line fan outreach.[2]

Reverb's "Eco-Village" provides fans with a "hands on" learning experience that engages them with local non-profit groups, and gives them the opportunity to volunteer with tree, and environment-focused groups within their community. Fans can also donate money for the cause and receive a souvenir sticker.[3]

Reverb has worked with such artists as Alanis Morissette, Avril Lavigne, Barenaked Ladies, Beastie Boys, Blue Man Group, Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, Dave Matthews Band, Fall Out Boy and the Honda Civic Tour, Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Norah Jones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sheryl Crow, The String Cheese Incident, The Fray, Phish, Jason Mraz,[4] and others.[5][6]
