With a year-long commitment to giving back, it’s safe to bet 1% for the Planet members, NGOs, and fans don’t need a holiday to remember the environment. But as Earth Day turns 41 this Friday, we noticed a coincidence that we couldn’t pass up: there are 41 songs on our compilation album, all donated to raise funds and awareness of environmental causes. We decided that was ample cause for celebration–today only, we’re offering the 1% album as a free download.
Our planet-loving album, 1% for the Planet: The Music, Vol. 1, was released just over a year ago with 41 rare and exclusive tracks from artists like Jack Johnson, Josh Ritter, Jackson Browne, and Grace Potter. The album sold over 15,000 copies, thanks in large part to the support of the 1% network. Now, let’s see how widely we can share 1% on Earth Day.
Here’s what you can do:
* Include the link and code EARTHDAY11 in your tweets and facebook posts today (don’t forget to tag @1PercentFTP)
* Use the image above in your newsletter or blog with a link to http://music.onepercentfortheplanet.org/redeem. Download it here.
* Create buzz for giving green on Earth Day. Encourage friends, family, co-workers, and followers to pay it forward and support an environmental non-profit. 1% members have donated over $70 million to hundreds of organizations working to ensure a sustainable future for our planet–join them!
