Ed Sheeran has expressed his desire to become more environmentally sustainable.

The “Shivers” singer mentioned on BBC Radio London that his sustainability efforts start at his UK home. “I have got a massive beehive. I have this massive wildlife pond with newts in it, salamanders and there’s a grass snake that lives in there and hedgehogs,” he said, per The Independent

Sheeran went on to detail his more sprawling vision to help his home country. “I’m trying to buy as much land as possible and plant as many trees as possible,” he said. “I am trying to rewild as much of the UK as I can. I love my county and I love wildlife and the environment.” 

Speaking about his upcoming tour, Sheeran said that he understands that throwing large events across the world isn’t the most environmentally friendly endeavor. “I feel like I am going to get my head bitten off anytime I say that, as my job is not a hugely sustainable job as I go and play in cities, but I am trying my best,” he said, adding, “I think it’s about finding the balance with that — and I honestly think that this next tour that I’m going on, at the end of the tour, I can’t see myself going on one of them like that again.” 

Sheeran’s Mathematics Tour is scheduled to begin in late April in Ireland.
