JOSE GONZALES is determined to make upcoming tour of North America as environmentally-friendly as possible. The singer has teamed up with environmental organisation Reverb, which will help neutralise emissions generated by venue energy use and transportation by employing renewable energy solutions. The Swedish star's band and crew will also sip water from reusable canteens instead of plastic bottles, and use biodegradable plates and forks. Gonzales joins other earth-friendly artists like Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morisette and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who have recruited the Maine-based non-profit firm to help calculate and curb their road shows' carbon footprint. The tour kicks off 29 February (08) in Miami, Florida.
