In these times of Charlie Sheen and his mountains of money going to things like bottle-blond porn stars and a cocaine habit, isn’t it nice to hear about celebs giving their money to a good cause? Maroon 5, Pearl Jam, Jack Johnson, Bonnie Raitt, Philip Glass, the Zac Brown Band, and O.A.R., are just some of the musicians that have signed on to donate tracks to benefit eco-friendly causes.

The Patagonia Music Collective (a branch of Patagonia, Inc., the environmentally minded clothing company) launched on Tuesday and is an initiative that partners with top artists to bring proceeds from music directly to foundations of the musicians choosing. Every week a new song from a different artist will be available on their website, giving fans the opportunity to purchase a track for just $0.99 and be involved in supporting an environmental cause.

“My hope is that fans see their favorite artists supporting the environment and want to get involved themselves,” said Yvon Chouinard, the founder and owner of Patagonia. “The groups these musicians are supporting are the ones that are ultimately going to save the planet. Patagonia’s hopeful other musicians will see that by just donating a song they can easily provide their favorite enviro group with a new stream of financing.”

Maroon 5’s proceeds will benefit Reverb, while Pearl Jam are offering their earnings to marine life non-profit Conservation International. But a full list of bands with previews of the tracks and links to the environmental organizations that will benefit from them can be found here.

This is a pretty rock star idea, just saying!
