There's a song that's quite popular nowadays in France, by Tryo - a band that's popular, and known to be green. The title is "Consommez" and can be translated by "Consume"

Here it is (with the translation of the lyrics)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....bvEs67_xHY

Buy packaged products

Cook ready-made meals

Plastic wrap your school books

Then throw them out

Put your shopping in plastic bags

It's so practical to bring them home

And they'll make beautiful bin liners

That you'll dump in alleyways

Produce wrapped-up products

And don't inform people

That this accumulated filth

Will still be here in 2000 years

Trees bear new fruits

They blossom plastic bags

And at the bottom of the sea

A dolphin chokes to death

Trees bear new fruits

I've picked them all across Africa

And at the bottom of the sea

Our garbage follows the current

Buy packaged products

If you can, you must export it

It's true, from Asia to Africa

They need plastic bags

Produce wrapped-up products

It's the spirit of the times

The wind will blow

Your dirt across the continents

Buy packaged products

And bury it all

In a few thousand years

Archeologists will say we were crazy

Produce wrapped-up products

Since nobody cares

Make the most of it, and litter

The earth is yours

Trees bear new fruits

They blossom plastic bags

And at the bottom of the sea

A dolphin chokes to death

Trees bear new fruits

I've picked them all across Africa

And at the bottom of the sea

Our garbage follows the current
