The Green Music Group Challenge

Got a little something new for you today.  I was contacted by the Green Music Group yesterday and told about their Green Music Challenge.  From the email I received:
[Green Music Group] was launched in January 2010 by a high-profile coalition of artists, music industry leaders, and respected environmental non-profit organizations with the aim of bringing about widespread environmental change, both within the music industry, and beyond it.

To that end, The Green Music Group Challenge is the first major fan outreach and educational promotion of GMG. This web-based photo challenge encourages members to take positive environmental action via a series of nine bi-weekly challenges, each put forth by one of GMG's Founding Artists. Launched on April 10th, the GMG Challenge runs for 18 weeks and features video "calls to action" from artists such as Dave Matthews Band, Sheryl Crow, Maroon 5, Willie Nelson, Linkin Park, and other influential musicians. Willie Nelson is the promoter of our current challenge and he encourages all individuals to travel more eco-friendly i.e. (travel by bike, light rail, carpool etc....)

I hope that our challenge is something that your readers would be interested in! I would love your help promoting this challenge anytime between today and June 4, 2010. For more info, please visit the following:

So obviously, they're right - this is just the place to promote this idea.  I hope that everyone here will share how they're using their bikes and other forms of transportation to reduce fuel use... and also take on some of the forthcoming challenges as the Green Music Group announces them!

And here's Willie Nelson's video asking you to think about your transportation choices!


People, not speed.

  1. It's hard to take a green challenge from DMB too seriously. I guess I'm still a little peeved that they dumped untreated human waste into the Chicago River. I guess it was just the driver's fault though, so maybe I should let it go.
