1Thing: How Meghan Trainor, EOB and The Glorious Sons Are Saving the Planet


March is a big month for the eco-conscious among us.

Global Recycling Day, a major green holiday, falls on Mar. 21.

The purpose of the day is to spread awareness about recycling as a global issue and encourage people all over the world to think resource, not waste, when it comes to the goods around us.

We caught up with some of your favorite artists to find out the 1Thing they are doing to keep the planet safe.

Meghan Trainor recalls an important shift she made to cut down on unnecessary plastic waste.

“I changed a huge thing in my life,” the “All About That Bass” singer said.

Trainor explained that her mom (and manager) used to give her cases of water bottles to keep around the house, both for herself and guests.

“That’s gone now,” Trainor explains. “New year, 2020, we’re done with the water bottles. Everyone has their own water bottle — metal, so it can stay cold. It’s just smarter, it’s better.”

EOB, also known as Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien, divulged the process that goes into making sure his musical output doesn’t leave a big mark on the environment.

“One thing we’re doing is engaging with the company and looking at making our touring and our album carbon-neutral,” he said.

The Glorious Sons also make sure their music leaves a small global footprint, saying they recycle their strings and take their batteries to IKEA.
