MMJ BIG Holiday 2
Rock The Earth
Proceeds from the 2006 Jam Cruise 4 were donated to our greening partner Rock the Earth. Rock the Earth is a not-for-profit, national public interest environmental organization dedicated to protecting and defending America’s natural resources through partnerships with the music industry and the world-wide environmental community.
To offset carbon emissions from Jam Cruise 4 in 2006 and passenger travel to and from Fort Lauderdale, Jam Cruise formed a partnership with Trees for the Future to plant trees in the regions to which we travel. CO2 (carbon dioxide) is produced from burning fossil fuels; trees absorb CO2 and produce oxygen through photosynthesis. Planting trees is the most cost-effective way to take CO2 out of the atmosphere. Donations from Cloud 9 and Jam Cruise 4 passengers allowed Trees for the Future to plant 52,000 trees in Jamaica and the Yucatan Peninsula! These trees will continue to do their job of reducing CO2 in the global atmosphere and leaving a positive legacy for many years to come.
