30 Seconds to Mars welcomes you to their universe. This fall, alt-rockers 30STM are headlining MTV2's $2 Bill Welcome to the Universe tour: a 30-city all-ages tour across country that runs from October 17 to November 25 and features opening acts such as Head Automatica, Cobra Starship, and Rock Kills Kid. But 30 Seconds won't be traversing the states on just any old Greyhound - all the band's vehicles will be powered by low-emissions, renewable biodiesel, a fuel made partly from vegetable oil. Their green tour is just part of the band's efforts to spread the word to their fans about alternative, cleaner living. The band is also promoting think MTV's Break the Addiction campaign, helping us to help you save the Earth.
Lead singer Jared Leto and Co. are not the only band to embrace an environmentally sound tour. Other groups that have gone green on the road include the Dave Matthews Band, Guster, Pearl Jam, and the Vans Warped Tour. By running their buses and trucks on biodiesel, recycling, or using renewable energy, these artists are paving the road to an environmentally clean lifestyle. Now it's up to you to follow their lead and break your addiction to bad eco-habits in your own life. And while you're at it, you can rock green!
