We have given Huggs to the Barenaked Ladies before, but had no idea how green they really were. According to Sherry Noik-Bent of the National Post, Stephen Page of the Ladies:
-sits on the board of the World Wildlife Fund Canada;
-owns shares in local wind co-op Windshare;
-was one of Bullfrog's first customers;
-is part of the Riverdale Initiative for Solar Energy and has 3 Kw of panesl on his roof;
-sets up an eco-village at each concert;
-runs the band's vans and buses on bio;
-brings recycling bins to concerts;
-sells carbon offset wristbands to concert goers;
-selling their latest album on USB flash drives- CD's are usually just loaded into the computer anyways, and "the USB drives are completely reusable and shareable-and exactly what those of us who are interested in the environment should be doing with their products." Page says "Being eco-friendly isn't something thats just for the yuppies".::National Post
