BLOND:ISH Drops 14-Track Record On Biodegradable Vinyl, ‘#PlasticFreeParty’

BLOND:ISH continues to push more sustainability in the music industry with the release of her new record, a 14-track compilation called #PlasticFreeParty made on biodegradable vinyl.

The environmental activist and head of the nonprofit Bye Bye Plastic has developed the vinyl in partnership with Evolution Music and Deepgrooves, a vinyl-pressing plant that uses bacterial-based materials to create the physical music.

The record will feature tracks from BLOND:ISH and other artists and will be sold on Bandcamp for $40 under BLOND:ISH’s label Abracadabra Records. There will also be an NFT sold through the Sound marketplace.

BLOND:ISH is not the only artist pushing for more sustainable vinyl in the industry. Anna Lunoe’s 2022 EP Saturday Love has an available vinyl made entirely from recycled records as well as a record jacket made from 100% recycled materials.

Both artists push sustainability not only in their music, but also in their everyday life. Lunoe’s social media is full of small and simple ways music lovers and musicians can be more green.

BLOND:ISH is also the founder of the sustainability nonprofit Bye Bye Plastic, known for its Bayfront Park cleanups with Ultra and eco-rider that asks artists to put certain sustainable requirements in their performance rider.

Current supporters of the eco-rider include Dubfire, Juliet Fox, ANNA, Anabel Englund, Eats Everything, and over 1500 total artists.
