Touring green since 2004, Barenaked Ladies were one of the “early adopters,” inspired by other notable green musicians like Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, and fellow Canadian, Neil Young. Together with the environmental non-profit Reverb the band created Barenaked Planet, an initiative that incorporates numerous greening elements; recycling, offsetting the carbon footprint of their tours, running their touring fleet on biodiesel, stocking eco-friendly merchandise, and giving non-profit organizations exposure and the opportunity to table at their shows. The Barenaked Ladies are also leading the way in digital music production, offering their albums on reusable USB drives and as downloads, reducing the need to for traditional CD distribution. The CD’s that they do release are held in a post-consumer 100% recyclable case.

To date, BNL has hosted more than 300 groups in Reverb's Eco-Village, fueled with 18,075 gallons of biodiesel, and neutralized hundreds of thousands of pounds of CO2.
