Radiohead’s footprint and yours…

Radiohead have posted an addition to their Dead Air Space site that discusses their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint during their 2008 tour as well as suggestions on reducing our carbon footprint as we make our way to the various venues. There is even a calculator to help us determine the most environmentally friendly methods of transportation to the show!

It will be updated throughout the tour which starts next week!! (Insert happy dance here!)
