The Greenest Band in the Land

In the recording, manufacturing and shipping of their new album, "Great Possessions," The Giving Tree Band once again displayed their dedication to creating guilt-free entertainment. They camped, ate locally grown organic produce, and for a total of 500 miles, they rode their bikes back and forth to a solar-powered studio. Their instruments are made from naturally fallen trees, the packaging is 100-percent recycled (and features vegetable ink), trees are being planted to offset shipping emissions, and even the music was written to encourage our well-being and that of the environment.

But all that is really beside the point. The album, to be released Aug. 18, features fantastic folk tunes that are worth a listen — you can do so at www.thegivingtreeband.com.
