[ Musicians Who Care About the Environment ]

Many musical artists practice an eco-friendly lifestyle.  Eluxe Magazine has a great list of Eco Friendly musicians and what they are doing to help our planet.  Some of the artists on the list include Pink, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and more:

  • In the spring of 2010, Drake embarked on his first-ever tour as a headliner in association with Reverb’s Campus Consciousness Tour, which began with Guster in 2006. The CCT works to link artists with environmental student groups at schools across the country to raise awareness through literature and activities in tents on the concert grounds, like eco-friendly screen printing from Studio 3, an organic textile company.
  • Pharrell became Creative Director of Bionic Yarn in 2009. The ‘yarn’  is based on plastic pollution salvaged from the oceans and recycled into textiles, and the concept is part of the Vortex Project, an initiative by Parley for the Oceans in collaboration with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to help rid the oceans of plastic and put it to good use.
  • Paul McCartney helped launch Meatless Mondays, along with his daughter Stella, which encourages even non-vegetarians to shun meat for one day a week–animal farming has a huge impact on the environment, and going meatless even one day a week can make a huge difference.
