Willie Nelson Planet Award

Wow! This is great, Willie Neslon!

We are so happy to hear that legendary country musician, Willie Nelson, has been given a Planet Defender award for being green (totally not a pot joke, ha!) and for his environmental work!

He was just honored at Rock The Earth's Seventh Annual Planet Defender Awards, and the prize is given out to people making a difference protecting the planet.

Willie's been doing this kind of stuff since 1985! He first set up the Farm Aid charity concert series that year, and has grown that into other charitable projects — like two sustainable biodiesel plants!

Here's what Willie said:

"It's an honor to receive the Planet Defender Award and to be recognized by an organization with similar values. I'm happy we share a love of music and the environment and use those passions to make the world a better place for generations to come. Thank you, Rock the Earth."

Congrats, Willie! You deserve this!

And keep up the FAB work!
