Stone at Forterra's Conservation Awards Breakfast

We recently mentioned Pearl Jam's partnership with Forterra to limit the amount of carbon released when the band tours.  Forterra recently uploaded a video of Stone's speech at that May 17th Conservation Awards Breakfast announcing that partnership.  Give a listen if you've been wondering what corporate conservation can look like.

Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard announced the launch of the Carbon Capturing Companies Program at Forterra's 2012 Conservation Awards Breakfast. Forterra's Carbon Capturing Companies Program provides an opportunity for Washington-based companies and residents to partner with local non-profit organizations and community service groups to plant native conifer trees in parks, right of ways, transportation corridors and natural areas in an effort to voluntarily reduce our impact on the climate.
