Every year, Earthfest, a community event organized by WBOS-FM in Boston, Mass., and the Department of Conservation, promises an environmentally friendly and entertaining day for tens of thousands of people. Influential bands CAKE, the BoDeans and the English Beat took the stage at the most recent festival, helping spread the word about protecting the environment to a crowd of more than 100,000. "We were thrilled with the depth of the lineup and the commitment of the bands to help us in celebrating Mother Earth," said Dana Marshall, WBOS program director, who believes the event was one of the best in the 15-year legacy of the festival. In addition to great music, the event included family-friendly activities and showcased environmentally friendly nonprofit organizations. WBOS took extra measures to ensure the event was carbon-neutral. Recycling initiatives occurred on site, and the station encouraged its listeners to take mass transportation to the event.
