1% for the Planet The Music Vol. 1 features 41 tracks from popular artists. Mosaic Design by TDA Advertising and Design (Boulder, CO)

Perhaps you’re wondering how rock stars can save the planet. It’s a pretty far-fetched notion — unless you know that 1% for the Planet has released an album of “40 rare and exclusive songs donated by leading artists to produce the first album dedicated to supporting the environment.” All proceeds from 1% for the Planet: The Music, Vol. 1 will be contributed to environmental organizations across the globe. You don’t hear those words — “all proceeds … will be contributed” — very often.

You might notice that we have a new badge on the upper right-hand corner of our website. It’s a link to purchase the album. Go ahead. Click on it. And get yourself a rockin’ good album that will put a smile on your face without leaving a big dent in your bank account.

1% for the Planet has launched a tongue-in-cheek media campaign to promote their first album to benefit environmental causes around the globe. Design by TDA Advertising and Design (Boulder, CO)

You’ll get 41 songs for just $9.99! Or, buy them individually for $0.99. Here are a few of the songs you’ll find in the album:

Josh Ritter – Great Big Mind

Madi Diaz – Nothing At All

Aidan Hawken – Prodigal Son

Jackson Browne – About My Imagination (Live)

Jack Johnson/Paula Fuga – Country Road

Brandi Carlile – All That Remains

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals – Till Morning Comes Around

Alternate Routes – Ain’t No Secret

You can read a full list of songs at the 1% for the Planet music site. Joe and I just purchased the album and are listening to it as I write this. My toes are tapping and yours will be too …

Join 1% for the Planet

In our first year of publication, Blue Planet Green Living made a decision to join 1% for the Planet. What this means to us — and to all business members — is that we pledge to give 1% of our annual profits to an environmental charity that is also a member of the organization.

While 1% of anything doesn’t sound like much, when people and businesses band together, 1% of hundreds of businesses’ profits amounts to a whole lot of good that can be done.

If you have a business or a nonprofit organization, we urge you to join 1% for the Planet. Make a small donation to the environmental charity(ies) of your choice, and know that you, too, are helping to save the planet we all share.

    Very nice! All proceeds is much better than “all profits” – good for them all! Good for the planet! I think it’s a good thing to do for the planet, for yourself, and a really nice gift to give to someone else.

    Thanks BPGL. Please, keep up the good work, and the good information.
