Help Rock Stars Save the Planet!
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.
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.
