Maybe you’re not necessarily looking for a full-time green job. Even so, you still have a green job to do – and it really needs to essentially be full-time to make a dent in the destruction of the ozone layer. However, your green job isn’t hard to do: Just a few easy steps will help you to live greener. With the help of Switchfoot and Third Eye Blind, one festival next month – Rock the Green – is trying to get the word out about how to do just that.

Rock the Green will take place in Milwaukee at Veterans Park on Sept. 15, 2012. The goal of the festival – which prides itself on using “near-zero waste efforts” to make the event happen – is to educate the community about how to take steps to be more sustainable. Whether a person recycles once a week or promotes the preservation of the environment eight hours a day on the job, he or she is making a contribution to the future of Mother Earth.

Rock the Green, which started in 2011, will feature six national bands and local artists in a concert; local and organic cuisine; and green sustainable living education. Foods of all types – including those for vegetarians and vegans – will be available. Artists include Third Eye Blind and Switchfoot along with Metric, Imagine Dragons, Atlas Genius and Morning Parade on the main stage.

Everything at Rock the Green will be compostable or recyclable, and LED lighting will be used along with power from 100 percent B20 biodiesel generators, bicycle power and solar power. In addition, those who carpool will receive a parking discount, and all tickets come with a reusable bottle of water.

Rocking the green this September couldn’t be a more entertaining way to get focused on keeping the planet vibrant and healthy for generations to come.
