Musicians unite for ‘no thanks to single-use bags’ message
Environmental charities have teamed up with local artists to create a music video aimed at discouraging the use of single-use bags.
A Greenrock spokeswoman said: “In order to communicate the key messages in a way that is fun but will stick in people's minds, we have, with the help of many friends, made a music video.”
The video, directed by Milton Raposo and shot at Lindo's, features Bermudian singers Daniel (Uzimon) Frith, Joy T Barnum and Mike (Uncle Elvis) Hind, along with Stuart Kriendler, the KBB litter critter and the Greenrock Bag Monster.
It will be launched tomorrow as part of Bermuda College's Spirit Day in an event hosted by the Bermuda College Environment Club.
Greenrock president Judith Landsberg said: “The public is becoming increasingly aware of the fact that single-use bags are a waste of resources, but we hope that this music video will be a fun way to reinforce that message and help people remember to bring their own reusable bags to the store and say ‘No Thanks!' to single use plastic and paper bags.”
The launch event will take place at 1pm tomorrow at the Bermuda College Student Centre.
