The Osisko Festival held in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, Canada this weekend was a great success with its best attendance ever. Featuring one of the 70’s biggest band “CCR” and Canadian Pop Rock Artist David Usher the crowd was going crazy.

We recently wrote about the Ottawa Bluesfest going green and I’m very happy to once again be able to talk to you about another green festival. Ok this festival may not be as big as the Ottawa Bluesfest but the organizers of these events sure are doing a great job at keeping an environmentally friendly aspect. Every few meters on the site you could find a container separating cans and bottles, recyclables and garbage. Also, volunteers were doing a very good job at keeping these containers usable by regularly emptying them.

These photos show volunteers sorting out the empty cans and loading them into the Pepsi truck.

Keep up the good work Osisko!

What you need to know is that you don’t need to pay a cent to go green. You can actually save money when doing so. It’s simple things like turning off the light whenever possible or using cold water to clean your clothes that make the big difference.

Visitors at the Peggy Notabaert Nature Museum in Chicago are unveiling their eco-resolutions:

CLEAR FORK, West Virginia (Reuters) – Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are talking more about “clean coal” and less about global warming as they woo voters in West Virginia and Kentucky — two states that sit at the heart of the nation’s coal economy.

In a bid to draw voters ahead of Democratic primaries in West Virginia on Tuesday and Kentucky on May 20, both candidates are playing up the ascendant role of commercially untested and so far economically nonviable ways of converting America’s plentiful coal supplies into electricity without spewing massive quantities of heat-trapping greenhouse gases.
