I’m very excited to tell you that I’m going to be attending the 2013 JUNO Awards this year as their “on the ground” eco-blogger!
I’ve been to the JUNOS for the last two years and it’s been so much fun! This year is going to be different because I’m going to be learning and experiencing about the efforts, projects and partners of The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) and the JUNO Awards to be more sustainable and I’m going to be blogging about it here and at the official JUNOS website too!
I am excited to share about Me to We Style and their partnership with CARAS and the JUNO Awards. Me to We is part of my favourite non-profit organization, Free The Children. Me to We Style partners with the JUNOS to sell limited edition Live Music. t-shirts made in Canada of organic cotton and bamboo. For every shirt bought from Me to We Style a tree is planted. I can’t wait to buy a shirt!
I’m so excited to go to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum for the exhibit – “The Power of Music: Sustainability and the JUNOS”. The exhibit will have four interactive listening and learning stations and each one will have a different sustainability theme featuring a Canadian musician and their cause. It will be cool to learn about the causes that Canadian musicians care about.
The JUNO Awards are all about celebrating Canadian music. I not only love the environment, but I’m a huge fan of music! I’m excited to do it all – JUNO Fan Fare, be in the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards media room and of course the big televised award show hosted by Michael Bublé. I hope to have the chance to meet, sit down with and interview some of the 2013 JUNO nominees and performers including Marianas Trench, Carly Rae Jepsen, Metric, Serena Ryder and Hedley.
See you next week in Regina!
