BNL Greens It Up

Barenaked LadiesJim Creeggan of the Barenaked Ladies wrote a nice little Recycling piece in the BNL blog last week. He tells of how his mom started a recycling depot for glass and tin back in 1977. They never thought they’d see the day for curbside recycling pick-up, but of course it came, later followed by compost pick-up. He gives a breakdown of CO2 offset stickers they have sold at each concert stop. Both DC & Denver broke the 50,000 lbs mark.

He finishes up with this:

I told my mom about the recycling that we’re doing on tour, and how proud I was of it. She congratulated me, and then said, “Recycling is Good, but Reduction is Better.” I hear you Mom. One step at a time. I guess this is our little community-recycling depot.

BNL is working with Reverb, a non-profit organization that “seeks to raise awareness and support for the environment through building upon the powerful connection between musicians and their fans”. They’re helping BNL run their buses on B20 biodiesel, offset carbon emissions, and educate fans. By joining together, they have created the Barenaked Planet. We need more organizations like this!

What About Zero Waste?

Going vegan must be at the heart of any environmental discussion.

Why it doesn’t matter if the Impossible burger is healthy

The Impossible burger doesn’t need to be overtly healthy – it just needs to be vegan.

France’s ban of faux-meat branding won’t stop veganism

I’ll take “mycoproteinous food tube” over a tube of dead pig any day.
