Environmental Rap Superhero That Uses Music to Empower Youth to Become EcoHeroes with Brett Edwards Founder of Mr. Eco

Show Notes

How many times have you wished you were more environmentally conscious as a consumer? Brett Edwards aka Mr. Eco can teach you how through rap! While in college Brett started free style rapping for fun, under the rap identity of “Mystery E” and one day while at lunch with his sister and dad they suggested, he should start rapping about the environment. And thus, Mr. Eco was born!


Since that moment Mr. Eco has performed at 270+ elementary/middle school assemblies to 135,000+ children in The United States, St. Lucia, Taiwan and Hong Kong, his YouTube channel has over 730,000+ views, he funded his second album “Renewable Rap” via Kickstarter, and sailed from Bermuda to Iceland with 5 Gyres studying ocean plastic pollution. That’s what I love about Brett, he is a passionate individual with a mission to empower youth to make a change in the world.


Get ready to learn from the following topics and questions:

  • What it means to empower an individual and not necessarily just inspire them
  • Why is it so hard for us to make changes in our lives?
  • What you can do right away to start contributing to the protection of our planet?
  • How to handle the haters or hecklers while performing?
  • Why you should start your business now and not waste any time thinking about it?
  • Current events, such as the recent governmental ban on micro bead in face wash and tooth paste.
  •  How you should approach running a successful Kickstarter campaign? Along with some strategies and tactics to use along the way.


Additionally Brett references a blog post by Tim Ferris on how to hack Kickstarter funding, here is a link: http://fourhourworkweek.com/2012/12/18/hacking-kickstarter-how-to-raise-100000-in-10-days-includes-successful-templates-e-mails-etc/
