Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt has announced Green Music Group’s latest member challenge: Pledge to not use a disposable water bottle for the next two weeks. “Being on the road made me realize how many single use plastic water bottles are discarded on any given day,” Raitt reveals. “Consumption of single use and disposable plastics has spiraled out of control. They’re used for seconds, hours or days, but their remains will last forever.”
To sweeten the deal, the Green Music Group (GMG) is offering some fab prizes to folks who commit to this pledge. Those who sign up with GMG, add their name to a petition with Plastic Pollution Coalition and submit a top pic to GMG’s photo contest by 12pm ET on Friday, July 2nd are in the running to win a year’s supply of both a Native Energy carbon footprint offset and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. All entrants get a chance to win a 2010 Honda Insight Hybrid LX.
Green Music Group is a coalition of musicians, industry leaders and music lovers who use collective power to bring about environmental change in the music industry and around the globe. Founding members include Maroon 5, Linkin Park, Willie Nelson, and Dave Matthews Band, among other well-known musicians.
OK, now where’s my camera and Klean Kanteen bottle? (Where’s yours?)
