The Australian rockers have just kicked off their tour in support of their fourth studio album, "The Slow Rush."
Following a concert at San Diego's Pechanga Arena, Kevin Parker and his bandmates announced on Facebook that they were collaborating with the nonprofit REVERB to "reduce the environmental footprint of touring and help fight climate change."
The partnership will notably include environmentally friendly initiatives like using reusable water bottles for all band members and crew, recycling backstage and on tour buses, as well as donating unused food and hotel toiletries to local shelters.
An Eco Village will also be installed at every stop of "The Slow Rush" tour, where concertgoers can get familiar with REVERB's unCHANGEit campaign in collaboration with Defend Our Future.

"unCHANGEit is uniting the music community in the fight against climate change. We're a powerful group --musicians, fans, venues, festivals, and more-and we are using our voices, our dollars, and our daily actions to take on the threat posed by climate change," REVERB explain in their official website.
Tame Impala is the latest band to respond to growing concerns about the environmental impact of touring.
Last October, Billie Eilish announced that she partnered with non-profit consultants to make her "Where Do We Go?" world tour as "green as possible," urging fans to bring their own refillable water bottles and banning plastic straws at venues.
More recently, Coldplay shelved plans to tour in support of their latest double album, "Everyday Life," until they had figured out how concerts could be entirely carbon neutral.
"We're taking time over the next year or two, to work out how our tour can not only be sustainable [but] how it can be actively beneficial," frontman Chris Martin told BBC News back in November, adding that they are thinking of having a show with no single-use plastic or largely solar-powered.
