This summer when Sheryl Crow came to northern Michigan I was devastated I missed the concert because they sold out in like two point two seconds! Besides loving the music and jamming’ with my friends to her tunes I love that Sheryl Crow practices what she preaches when it comes to lovin’ the environment and being “green”. How many concerts do you go to that serve hummus, dried fruit and locally grown organic food?
I bet you had to think about this for a long time.
Let me guess you often go to concerts that encourage reusable water bottles with filling stations, biodegradable plates for your fresh organic local eats and the motto is chemical free cleaning and CFL’s light bulbs are cool.
Yup, totally the norm for your average concert, right?
Green Music Group is a project of the non-profit organization Reverb. GMG is a large-scale, high-profile environmental coalition of musicians, industry leaders and music fans using our collective power to bring about widespread environmental change within the music industry and around the globe.
Leading by example, Green Music Group facilitates large-scale greening of the music community, and magnifies the work of national nonprofits, all while building a vibrant community committed to environmental action.
This makes listening to Sheryl’s new album, 100 Miles from Memphis, even sweeter. Along with Sheryl some of my favorites like Bare Naked Ladies, Maroon 5 and Bonnie Raitt have joined in the cause of leading by example and hosting concerts that sing a great tune but makes an environmental difference. As puts it, “Music is the force for eco good” and I could not agree more!
