As the name suggests, Greenness strive to be as green as possible in all aspects of their creativity. The music and entertainment industry can be extremely wasteful and polluting, which is why it is especially crucial for artists to be aware of this and to imagine new, greener ways of making art.
Greenness is a band that believes in spreading awareness and changing attitudes through meaningful songwriting and peaceful activism. This includes writing lyrics that explore a deeper connection with nature, touring by train rather than plane, using refillable water bottles at gigs, buying second-hand instruments and gear, making sustainable merch (such as organic cotton t-shirts and tote bags) and choosing to perform at events that really try to reduce their environmental impact as much as possible. Here are some examples of green initiatives and festivals in which Greenness has taken part:
VegFest UK, Small World Festival / Soundscape Solar-Powered Stage, Vegan Food Bank fundraisers, Vegan Beer & Cider festivals, Wildlife Rescue fundraiser, Extinction Rebellion's Rebel Rising Festival, Music Declares Emergency, CleverGreen Festival...
If you run an eco-friendly event and are looking for live music acts that share your values, Greenness would love to hear from you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for all bookings enquiries.
