-- Bartlett, IL, April 20, 2012 -- Michael Droste, a teacher, composer, and musician from Illinois, is giving away a song called "Save The Planet." "I wanted to get the 'Save The Planet' message out to people, and what better way than on Earth Day," said Droste. Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle need to be your new lexicon," he added. "Put your paper and plastics in the recycle bin and not the landfill," he implored. New LED lights are a little expensive now, but over time will get cheaper and brighter. Currently, consumers can still take advantage of compact fluorescent bulbs that offer dramatic savings in power consumption. Droste stated, "Energy conservation, recycling, and trying to live a 'green lifestyle' ate the key to out collective success." Technological advances in solar panels, home power cubes, and electric cars will help, but seven billion people need to change also. "This song send a message of hope and that if we all work together we can truly change and protect our planet," said Droste. It's not just for us, but for future generations. "We are stewards of the planet and not the owners to pillage it's resources blindly," Droste concluded.
