TOMO: SOMETHING THAT I DO AT HOME IS UNPLUG MY APPLIANCES WHEN THEY ARE NOT IN USE. MANY PEOPLE DON'T KNOW THIS BUT WHEN YOU LEAVE APPLIANCES PLUGGED IN (TOASTER, MICROWAVE, ETC...) THEY ARE STILL RUNNING ELECTRICITY THROUGH THEM. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT MOST PEOPLE PROBABLY DON'T THINK OF BUT IS AN EASY THING TO DO AND WILL HELP A LOT, AND WILL ALSO HELP KEEP YOUR ELECTRICITY BILLS DOWN AS WELL WHICH IS A BONUS ON TOP OF IT ALL.
2) You guys have been touring around the world, what is the biggest environmental problem you've seen on a global scale?- submitted by Becks
TOMO: PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES. THESE HAVE BECOME A NORMAL PART OF OUR LIVES AND PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A BIG IMPACT. PURIFY YOUR TAP WATER AT HOME, BUY GLASS BOTTLES, BUY WATER IN BULK. WE ARE MORE GUILTY OF THIS THAN ANYONE SINCE WE ARE ALWAYS ON TOUR AND IT HAS BECOME A NORMAL THING TO HAVE CASES OF WATER PROVIDED FOR THE BAND AND CREW IN ORDER FOR US TO HAVE PURE DRINKING WATER. WE HAVE ACTIVELY STARTED MAKING IT PART OF OUR RIDER TO PROVIDE WATER IN GLASS BOTTLES FOR EVERYONE, AND ALSO FOR US TO CARRY AROUND ALUMINUM WATER CANISTERS WITH PURIFIED TAP WATER IN THEM. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE SEE NO MATTER WHERE WE GO AND THATS SCARY WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH WE TRAVEL AND HOW MANY PEOPLE THERE ARE IN THE WORLD...
