Kodiak Starr Inc's Climate Action Contribution
New Climate Actions Kodiak Starr Inc Commits To Take:
Commit to Reducing Waste Produced on Tour
There are many simple and easy ways to decrease waste while on tour. This includes: coordinating with venues, concessionaires and catering to reduce waste at the source by using environmentally preferable serve-ware and straws; consulting with catering to to make entire service plastic-free, aiding venues and caterers in reducing non-reusable water bottle consumption; collecting and recycling guitar strings, collecting and properly disposing of used batteries.
Commit to Reducing Food Waste
Every year in the United States, approximately 31% (133 billion pounds) of the overall food supply is wasted, which impacts food security, resource conservation, and contributes to the 18% of total U.S. methane emissions that come from landfills2. Coordinate with caterers and venues to donate excess food to local shelters and food banks, where regulations allow it.
Areas For Collaboration
We are interested in collaborating on the following:
- Promoting increased charging infrastructure
- Supporting adoption of state-level policies to reduce methane from upstream and midstream oil and gas operations
- Aggregating demand for renewable energy with other actors
