Sting Slinging Organic Salami And Biodynamic Wine

Somehow between being the lead singer of one of the world’s most successful rock bands and reinventing himself as an equally beloved solo artist, Gordon Sumner (otherwise known as Sting) slowly but surely began to reveal his green roots.

It all started when he and his wife Trudie Styler established the Rainforest Foundation to protect indigenous tribes. Eventually, we were hearing about his enviable tantric yoga skills, vegetarianism, work with the Bees For Development Trust and plans to turn The Vertical Farm into a documentary.

What could a 58 year old with so many accomplishments under his belt possibly want to tackle next? How about salami, for starters? Say whaaaa!!?? Hasn’t he been rockin’ a meat-free lifestyle for decades?!! Yes… and no.

In the late nineties, the multi-award-winning musician acknowledged that since building an organic farm on his 900-acre Tuscany estate, he had so many animals scampering about that he started eating them. Weird.

Whatever his current diet, he’s selling organic versions of classic Italian foods under the name Il Palagio, including “speciality salami made from a local breed of pig,” chestnut and acacia honey, extra virgin olive oil and biodynamic Chianti/Tuscan red wine. If it’s any consolation, Styler feels that they’re “using nature’s bounty to give something back to the earth” by donating 10% of their profits “to the environmental charities (that they) support.”

What do you think about Sting’s decision to peddle pig? Organic deliciousness or gross incorporated? Chime in and share your thoughts!
