What we do
Over the years Bands for Lands (BFL) has utilized successful, traditional and innovative yet inexpensive ways to spread the message of conservation, sustainable and social awareness issues to thousands of people regionally and here in Colorado. Bands for Lands has worked with some of the biggest names in the music and creative arts industry. We have collaborated with amazing nonprofits, courageous businesses and companies doing their part to protect our natural resources and heritage.
The Bands for Lands concept will proactively spread eco-social awareness with solutions through edutainment to communities across the country focusing on a positive, empowering message via inspirational and accurate mediums.
Bands for Lands is committed to establishing a detailed organizational and social networking map of community groups, organizations, businesses, artists, performers, and bands around the nation.
This map will create alliances strengthening & uniting like-minded souls in the quest to create a healthy and harmonious planet where all life is respected and viewed in shared reverence.
What is the Mobile Edutainment Collaboratory?
One way Bands for Lands will proactively accomplish its mission is through the Mobile Edutainment Collaboratory (MEC), a bio-diesel/Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO) fueled, 24 ft box truck converted into a mobile stage featuring state of the art sound and visual components.
The MEC will attend events ranging from high visibility concerts, state fairs, festivals, conferences and conventions to local and regional community events.
The MEC is available for rental at any event. Contact Jeremy Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 720.364.0972
Green the Scene
Denver Venue Greening Initiative will:
Ensure that glass, aluminum, plastic and paper is recycled from local music venues, night clubs and bars in the Denver Metro area by providing recycle bins.
Bring together venues with local green product suppliers to replace napkins, stirs, straws, plasticware, and disposable cups with sustainable, compostable and recyclable products in order to reduce the carbon footprint of Denver's thriving music and dance scene.
Reduce energy consumption by replacing outdated lighting, upgrading to LED lighting systems and switching to alternative energy means such as wind, solar, and kinetic "dance floors".
Educate business owners about tax credit information and loan options for businesses "going green".
