Check out this benefit album from our friends at CLIF Green Notes—

CLIF GreenNotes is a program that marries the power of music with a passion for the environment; in the interest of protecting the places we play, for our and future generations. GreenNotes supports emerging musicians – passionate about the environment in their own right – who may not yet have the resources, expertise, or funds to integrate environmentally friendly touring practices. By helping artists reduce the environmental impact of their tours – and sharing their experience with audiences along the way – we hope music fans will be inspired to take action in their own lives and communities.

GreenNotes provides artists with the resources and the technical assistance required to integrate several eco-friendly touring practices.

GreenNotes artists appearing on this first ever Protect The Places We Play benefit album include: Missy Higgins, John Butler Trio, Michael Franti, Brett Dennen, Gomez, Xavier Rudd and more. Talk about an all star group!
