Steve Trash will bring his one-of-a-kind scientific show, “Ecology is Awesome,” to Lakeside. The show focuses on pollution, conservation, natural resources and the amazing connections that exist in the natural world.

His one-man act, featuring music, tricks and explanations, has entertained more than 25 million people since 1984. He has appeared in theaters, fairs and festivals all over the world with his message of making the world a little bit greener.

One of his career milestones includes creating the “Trash & Recycle Show” in 2007, which won the statewide Outstanding Project Award from the National Association of Resource Conservation & Development. This led to him making the list of top eco-comedians from the Mother Nature Network.

One of his biggest achievements was creating the world’s first ‘Green Magic Set’ in 2009. The set, made of renewable bamboo and rubber tree wood, was licensed by Imagiplay Toys and made its debut at the American International Toy Fair in New York City. It won the American Specialty Retailers Association’s ‘Share of the Fair’ list of outstanding toys.

Always on the search to broaden his reach and teach the world to understand and practice ‘green,’ Trash and his professional musician friend Kelvin Holly wrote, produced and recorded an entire album of green-themed songs, The Trash Tunes, in 2013.

As an eco-consultant, he is constantly brainstorming ways to help spread the message of sustainability. This has led to the creation of The Recycle Cycle (a mobile recycling educational station), the Litter Champ Challenge Trophy (a traveling trophy to promote school campus litter prevention) and N-Harmony with Nature (a waste-free outdoor program).

When Trash isn’t touring, he spends his days practicing what he preaches. He lives in a green home in the tiny Frog Pond, Ala. The house is earth-birmed, designed for thermal mass insulation, features many reduced-energy appliances, has a composting bathtub in his backyard and has a 21-panel solar array in his front yard as a power source.

He has made appearances on CBS, ESPN, CNBC and VH1, and has been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, CBS Marketwatch, Movie Maker Magazine and Alabama Business Magazine.
