The performers selected for Sydney’s Live Earth are quite appropriate for the topic. We all know how green Jack Johnson is. The John Bulter Trio, a super popular group in Australia is also known for practicing and preaching sustainability (see them in Boston in a couple weeks @ Earthfest!). Missy Higgins doesn’t even own a car; she bikes or uses public transit to get where she’s going! Read more about the artists here (pdf).
