DJs Against Climate Change
As any DJ or traveling creative type should know, CO2 emissions from airplane travel are reeking havoc on our planet, and every time you jet off to DJ that big party in Brazil or festival in Australia, you’re contributing to making Mother Nature sad. After tallying up his own CO2 emissions from air travel, New York based DJ and producer Sammy Bananas (Fool’s Gold) put together this clever video explaining how to offset your carbon footprint. It’s as simple as entering your 2011 tour schedule and hometown here, then purchasing carbon offsets through Terrapass, a company that will distribute your money to wind farms, landfill gas capture projects and clean energy projects. The carbon offsets cost as little as $5.95 per 1000 lbs of CO2, and as an added bonus, your contribution is tax deductible. Get to it people!
