Music That Does the Environment Good



    Patagonia, the apparel company known for its environmentally friendly ways, teamed up with top artists this week to form a music collective benefitting environmental organizations.

    Among the big names participating are two bands with local ties: Switchfoot and Pearl Jam. It’s not a surprise Switchfoot is on board -- the recent Grammy winners have been involved in numerous humanitarian causes in San Diego, including establishing the Switchfoot Bro-Am Surf Contest, a benefit and concert that raises money for homeless kids in San Diego.

    Other bands in the collective include Maroon 5, Big Head Todd, Jack Johnson and the Zac Brown Band.

    Exclusive tracks will be sold for $.99 each, with net proceeds going to environmental organizations of the musicians’ choice. The Patagonia Music Collective launched March 1. Check it out here.
