Since 2008 REVERB has partnered with Maroon 5 to reduce the environmental impact of their touring efforts and to connect M5 fans with important environmental and social causes and organizations on and off tour. On February 24th REVERB joined James Valentine and Mickey Madden of Maroon 5 for a day of service at FREEHAB, The Teen Project's 100 bed free rehabilitation facility for youth transitioning from homelessness. The REVERB team and Maroon 5 worked with FREEHAB supporters to design and create a 'GREEN' Clean Living Apartment at the FREEHAB Facility in Los Angeles.
Check out the video and images from the event below:
Thanks in part to local supporters of FREEHAB including C. Neithart Designs, Cali Bamboo Flooring, Urban Woods, Above All Catering, Shlomo Tuvia and others the project was a huge success! The new 'GREEN' Clean Living Space includes:
|- Bamboo Floors||- Furniture made of reclaimed and upcycled wood|
|- Recycled PVC Carpet Tiles||- Recycled glass countertops|
|- No VOC Paints||- Artwork completely created from upcycled materials|
In addition to the GREEN living space the REVERB team also connected FREEHAB with Summerland Farms and donated a large scale CSA share to support the kitchen at FREEHAB for the rest of the 2014 season.
