a partner initiative between Ryoko Suzuki - Holistic Healing & Wellness and DMB Fit Crew
DMB Fit Crew is all about philanthropic fitness:
Reaching individual wellness goals through habits and behaviors that build a community
and leave the world better than we found it.
Philanthropy doesn't always mean giving money; we can also give our time, our support, our energy.
The #trashtagDMB initiative is all about putting forth an EFFORT to influence our DMB family in specific ways that make change for the better. While we are doing the things we love, we show love to the planet.
"Create environments where we become healthier." -Dave Matthews
In December of 2022, Ryoko partnered with DMB Fit Crew to offer a 3-week Stress Buster series during that busy time of year. 12 participants came together to share in the lessons, wisdom, and practice Ryoko offers. This group emanated the spirit of the Fit Crew as a whole and experienced profound peace, love, and camaraderie during our three weeks together.
Ryoko shared many meaningful gifts with us, including #trashtagDMB. She participates in a #trashtag in her neighborhood and discovered an opportunity to do more good for the planet through our group.
We were reminded that we are influencers. We influence each other every day by sharing our goals, struggles, successes, challenges, support, and encouragement. Our group is what it is because of the healthy habits and behaviors of each active member.
Ryoko's instincts are so right. Let's take that loving influence we have on each other and direct it toward our DMB fan family as a whole. We have the opportunity to encourage thousands of people to show our planet love while we do the things we love most, including dancing to DMB together.
with 3 HABITS:
LEAVE NO LITTER
Whether on your workout route or on tour, do what Dave says and "take what you brought with you!" Encourage your crew to impact our DMB family culture by making #trashtagdmb a THING.
PICK UP LITTER
Wherever you roam, be the kind of person who leaves the world better than you found it. Pick up that trash. Post on social media with #trashtagdmb
REDUCE YOUR FOOTPRINT
Your concert addiction and wellness goals do not have to have a negative affect on the planet. Find ways to reduce or offset your impact. Skip the gym and run where you are. Carpool to a concert with your posse. Be an influencer with #trashtagdmb to make your efforts visible to the community!
#trashtagDMB launched again on Earth Day 2023!
Following the lead of Dave, Ryoko, and Jeff, net proceeds from #trashtagDMB swag sales will be donated to dmbtrees.org to plant a billion trees with The Nature Conservancy and Dave Matthews Band.
