“Always listen to your mother,” Gavin Fox of Vega4 told us as we interviewed the band at this year’s Earthfest concert in Boston. This coming from the band who’s lead singer, Johnny McDaid, climbed the metal scaffolding on the JumboTron to close out their amazing opening set!

This up-and-coming foursome are fantastically funny, mildly irreverent, and humble gentlemen as well. Did I mention they’re also very environmentally conscious blokes?

During our interview, Johnny McDaid told us about his plans to work closely with his record label, SonyBMG, to reduce packaging waste with their record. We also learned that the video contest for the song Life is Beautiful on YouTube is coming to a close today. Yes, that’s right folks… TODAY.

The members of Vega4 are asking all of you with a camera to get out there and film an earth conscious music video for their latest single, Life is Beautiful. The lucky winner of this contest will win two free tickes to the Live Earth concert later this summer. If Live Earth is half as fun as Earthfest, I’m so there!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
