This is Green E - the Environmental Elvis. Green E takes Elvis Presley music of the 60's and 70's and combines it with 90's socially active values about the environment.
Songs like "Are you lonesome Tonight?" becomes "Are you recycling Tonight?" and "Viva Las Vegas" becomes "Viva Falafel."Saving the planet one song at a time is Green E - The Environmental Elvis's message.
"You can love me tender, but only if you recycle, " Green E states from under a shade tree near a babbling brook (actually, in front of the computer!). So many environmental tragedies in today's world - the depleting ozone layer, a boozing sea captain and thousands of overflowing landfills, not to mention the unnecessary extended use of environmentally harmful products - could have been and can be prevented. It doesn't take much to improve the environment we live in. In just two hundred years we've created disasters that will take thousands of years to fix. By neglecting our environment we are creating an unsafe and unhealthy world for our children and grandchildren. The good news is that we can prevent many of the disasters that befall our beautiful lands. With a polyester jumpsuit, a "think globally, act locally" attitude, and a little TCP (Take Care of the Planet). Green E and his loyal fans can change the world.
