Guest Blog-Music Working for Water
Your music, at work for water
By Allie Kosela
When GreenHeroes approached me asking to do a guest post for the Take Action blog the first “action” that came to mind is probably the most fun thing you can do for the environment: listen to music. Lake Ontario Waterkeeper has started a new groundbreaking project called Swim Drink Fish Music where water advocates and the arts community connect to support local Waterkeepers.
Musicians, like fellow GreenHeroes Gord Downie and Sarah Harmer, have a strong connection to environmental issues. In fact, if you look at the arts community as a whole, you’re likely to find that many painters, writers, poets, musicians and dancers share a love for the environment.
We think like-minded people should connect more often! Swim Drink Fish Music (#SDFM) was launched for you to connect you to your waterbody and to the musicians who are working with Waterkeeper groups to protect it. The online version of SDFM launched in June 2009 and continues to grow thanks to our amazing supporters. There is no easier way to take action and help protect your water than joining Swim Drink Fish Music.
Thanks to GreenHeroes, you have an exclusive chance to take action. The first 10 people to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org will get a complimentary subscription to Swim Drink Fish Music!
