Sting and his wife Trudie Styler will soon be honored by former president Bill Clinton for their work to conserve the rainforests.

Recently, we wrote about The Rainforest Foundation, started together by Sting and Styler. The organization protects rainforest environments as well as works with people indigenous to the rainforest lands to protect their home.

According to contactmusic.com, in honor of their work for rainforests, they will be given the Clinton Global Citizen Award on September 11th at the Clinton Global Initiative. Sting will also perform at the event held in New York City, along with Somalian rapper K’Naan.

The Clinton Global Initiative was started in 2005 in order to “inspire, connect, and empower a community of global leaders to forge solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.” The former president said when announcing this year’s event program and honorees, “Since we began in 2005, CGI members have made great progress in addressing critical global issues by making more than 2,000 commitments through CGI that have and will improve the lives of more than 300 million people in more than 180 countries…”As many of these commitments come to fruition, I am proud that we will be showcasing the tangible impact they have made.”

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
