I'm leaving to present at a sustainability conference this Wednesday, and it is in Florida. Besides the carbon from the flight, I'm thinking about sunscreen and how to choose a good brand.

Partnered with the local musicians’ union, a handful of PSU community development students have been working together to raise awareness for the Fair Trade Music campaign. Fair Trade Music (FTM) is similar to other fair trade movements in their struggle to establish an agreement of fair compensation from venues or clubs to the professional musicians hired to perform nightly. The current practice within the live music scene is to mainly offer exposure to bands in return for their hours spent practicing, promoting, traveling to a gig and performing.
