A prolific singer/songwriter, rocker and sought-after collaborator, Emily Zuzik’s wide-ranging career has allowed her to shift fluidly from acoustic folk to alternative rock and everything in between. A fixture in the New York City music scene for nearly a decade, Zuzik is also a featured vocalist and co-writer of “The Low Hum,” off of Moby’s upcoming album Destroyed, out May 17th, 2011.
In honor of Emily’s feature on Moby’s upcoming album Destroyed, we decided to sit down for a quick chat with her about music and what she does to RESTORE. Read on for the Q&A.
RESTORE: What do you to do RESTORE?
Emily: If by RESTORE, you mean live more sustainably, then here’s what I do:
I shop locally at the green market.
I buy and recycle clothing.
I bring a canvas bag to the grocery store and try to keep my coffee in a travel mug to eliminate paper waste. I wear my RESTORE clothing when I run, when I hit the gym, when I want to feel comfortable around the house, when I want to feel comfortable running errands and when I do yoga!
RESTORE: What are your Top 3 Eco Friendly Habits?
1) I turn off lights when I leave the room and unplug adapters from the wall when not in use.
2) I carry a canvas bag to the grocery store and try to eat local and organic only.
3) I compost my food scraps and donate them to the GrowNYC Compost collection (http://www.grownyc.org/compost).
