5 Ways Sustainable Living is Becoming More Affordable and Accessible

Given an unlimited budget and lots of spare time, most of us would love to live more sustainably. Drive a Tesla electric car to minimize my fossil fuel dependence? Sure! Eat only at restaurants that source their food locally? No problem. Grow my own vegetables? I’ve heard it’s super therapeutic! But that’s not life. We’ve all got budgets and time constraints. Fortunately, making a significant change in your own impact on the planet is becoming easier and more affordable every year. Here are five examples of ways to live more sustainably that are becoming more affordable and accessible: 1.

Trapper Schoepp To Bring the Rock 'n Roll To Rock The Green

Rock ‘n roll is alive and well in Milwaukee, thanks much to Trapper Schoepp. While only 25 year old, Schoepp has already created quite a name for himself both locally and beyond. Schoepp’s musical resume ranges from gigs at just about every festival and venue around Milwaukee, to regional, national and international tours with musical veterans like The Wallflowers, Old 97’s, The Jayhawks, Soul Asylum, Tommy Stinson, Frank Turner and Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons, just to name a few. With two stellar releases under his belt, Trapper Schoepp 2012’s Run Engine Run and this year’s Rangers and Valentines, Schoepp’s sound continues to mature and grow, with a sonic quality and craftsmanship

Eagle Trace Expected To Soar at Rock The Green

Eagle Trace has a tightly woven alternative rock sound. Perhaps that’s because Eagle Trace is a band of brothers- literally. One could say that the Borgardt brothers have been raised on rock ‘n roll. Since 2012, brothers Max (guitar), Cass (drums), Jackson (bass) and Mitch (vocals) Borgardt have been playing as Eagle Trace, along with guitarist Phil Bregant. With a double guitar attack and a knack for accessible indie-alternative rock with a flare of gusto, Eagle Trace is clearly a young band on the rise. Rock the Green had a chance to catch up with bassist Jackson Borgardt recently as he was driving up north the the gorgeous lakes near Superior, Wisconsin, to talk about music and ways E

Great Lake Drifters - Blending Rock ‘n Roll, Folk & Country.

Blending elements of rock ‘n roll, folk and country, Great Lake Drifters have a sound that is a conundrum to pinpoint, but can be best described as Midwestern Americana with soaring harmonies and guitars kicked up to 11. Fronted by singer-songwriter and guitarist Ricky Ganiere, Great Lake Drifters have been gigging around Milwaukee since 2010, and have developed a great following for their high energy, powerful shows, which merge pop-songwriting sensibility with the reckless abandon of jammier artists. Rock the Green recently spoke with Ricky Ganiere about his music and the importance of sustainability. Ricky is passionate about music and making a greater contribution to our community as a
