Do Good By Doing
This season, many of The Clarice's artists are working to raise awareness of a multitude of pressing social issues, including the environment, human trafficking, race relations, homelessness and much more. We stand by their efforts and deeply believe in the power of the arts enact change.
Linda May Han Oh, and Fabian Almazan are active environmentalists. Almazan is the founder of Biophilia Records, which promotes environmental awareness and sustainability. The two also liaise with environmental and educational organizations such as BioBus, Girls Club of America, Trees NY, Riverkeeper, and InspireCorps. They believe that all artists have mandates which adhere to certain practices to limit their carbon footprint.
Almazan created an alternative to plastic CD packaging, The Biopholio™. This plastic-free, origami-inspired medium, bursting with vibrant artwork and liner notes, is made of FSC-certified paper, hand-folded and printed using plant-based inks. Each contains a code for the listener to digitally download the music in his or her preferred format.
