But the guys of Guster aren't just offering their opinions and leaving it up to the students to find out how to get involved; they're demonstrating them.
The eco-village set up at each stop on the tour includes:
" a tour of Guster's biodiesel tour bus,
" recycling stations,
" a global warming video contest,
" food drives, and
" a town hall meeting where students and faculty can speak with members of Guster about campus sustainability.
