With Sundance underway, we’re already receiving some encouraging tidbits of green information. First off, more than 135 new recycling bins have been placed throughout Park City to encourage proper disposal. On the drinks front, we’ve got Vodka 360 (official liquor of Sundance ’08) and Square One Organic Vodka supplying the eco-friendly spirits. We’ve even got Eco-Limo making some appearances in the area shuttling people around in fuel-efficient vehicles. It’s not as green as, say, this year’s Golden Globe Awards, but we’re happy to see folks getting a bit of a respite from the troubles of Hollywood.

Looking ahead, we’re happy to see John Legend’s upcoming concert getting some good attention. As mentioned earlier, Legend will perform at the Star Bar Saturday night as part of a partnership with Lexus and its Project Greenhouse on Main Street. He agreed to do the performance because Lexus will donate some of the proceeds to charities he supports, including his Show Me Campaign to address poverty in Africa. From the article,

His Saturday show will be a scaled-back, intimate performance with a small band, Legend said. Before and after the show, festivalgoers might see Legend walking around Main Street, as opposed to his last visit several years ago when he and friend Kanye West came ‘in and out’ for a brief show.

‘This will be my longest time there,’ Legend said. Instead of skiing – he said he’s a poor skier because of a childhood spent in flat Ohio – he wants to see as many movies as he can.”

We dig scaled back, intimate concerts. Great to see Legend hooking up with Project Greenhouse for this performance. We’re hoping to be on the scene covering the groove, so check back late Saturday evening for all the details.
