With all the buzz about Earth Month and the green-filled festivities occurring across the globe, everyone is expanding their outlook on what it means to be "eco-friendly." Even better, people are adopting habits to minimize their trash and contributions to the landfill.
Recently Erykah Badu dedicated a mixtape to the endangered bee species, Jadakiss opened a juice bar, and Future is headlining Broccoli City Fest, a festival dedicated to building awareness around sustainable practices including recycling, reducing energy usage and alternative forms of transportation.
