Sustainable vibes

The team on The Sustainable Hour have compiled a playlist of songs that are not only catchy and something you can clap your hands to but also all have an underlying message. 

Music and the arts play a significant role in delivering messages of all kinds. Some artists sing about love, some about heartache and others about country. This very personal compilation of tunes covers topics on recycling, environment, climate change and more providing the audience with knowledge, inspiration and hope.

Finishing off with Lil Dicky’s ‘Earth’, you will want to hear a repeat of this two classic hours of music. Each song has been picked and introduced by Mik, Tony, Colin and Jackie from The Sustainable Hour. Whilst the team interview many knowledgable and highly regarded guests week to week, they understand and appreciate the importance music has in moving people to action. Music expresses that which cannot be put into words. It is a space where we can all be the difference.
