Student’s Corner

If you’re like me, you like to have a soundtrack for just about everything. My Spotify is full of different playlists; whether it’s for working out or studying, I’ve got it covered. I think that music has the unique ability to empower and facilitate new ideas so I thought I’d put together a Sustainability Soundtrack. Here are my top five sustainability songs!


  1. “Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell

Best Lyric: “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, they paved paradise and put up a parking lot.”


  1. “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong

Best Lyric: “I hear babies cry, I watch them grow, they’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know.”


  1. “Don’t Go Near the Water” by The Beach Boys

Best Lyric: “Toothpaste and soap will make our oceans a bubble bath, so let’s avoid an ecological aftermath, beginning with me, beginning with you.”


  1. “Four Feet in the Forest” by Ziggy Alberts

Best Lyrics: “And we’ll watch the greens grow, we spent our times trying to get back to the rivers and how we’ve come,”


Lastly, in honor of the newest Nobel prize winner for literature…


  1. “High Water” by Bob Dylan

Best Lyric: I just can’t be happy, love unless you’re happy too. It’s bad out there, high water everywhere.
