Spinner.com has created a “Extreme Green” musicians list with 10 of today’s most eco-friendly bands revealed. The biggest surprise is that most of these groups did not appear at Live Earth. In fact, we were excited to find some listed that use green methods we’ve never seen before in the music industry. For group “Peter and the Wolf”, to avoid high gas prices in the during the summer of 2006, they toured the entire eastern part of the U.S. — by chartered sailboat. Sassy. Here’s what Jake from the site had to say about their feature,

“This is something I’ve been pushing for; and i can’t tell you how psyched I am whenever these artists get attention. The only other lists I’ve seen like this are quick to champion established artists like Pearl Jam, so I thought we were headed in that tired but true direction with our own (indeed, Pearl Jam does make our list, as well they should). That’s why our number one pick surprised and pleased me. The Ditty Bops? New faces, and new green ideas. They tour on their bicycles! How rad is that? Give these women a hand!”

We couldn’t agree more. Head on over to Spinner to check out the list.
