In honor of Earth Day, The Trash Mermaids, led by Scarlett Blu, have released their new track “Stoked On Life,” following the exclusive premiere with The New Nine. Scarlett Blu, is a strong supporter of ocean conservation and believes in its critical role in human and ecosystem health. Because of this, The Trash Mermaids are donating all proceeds from the song to Mission Blue. Mission Blue, founded by Sylvia Earle, is a global coalition of more than 200 ocean conservation groups and like-minded organizations dedicated to protecting the world’s oceans from threats, including climate change, pollution, habitat destruction and invasive species.

“For me, Earth Day is a reminder to protect our oceans,” shares Scarlett Blu. “Today, I take action by writing an Earth Day Song called “Stoked On Life” and donating all the proceeds of ‘Stoked On Life’ to Mission Blue and its extraordinary leader Sylvia Earle.”
Scarlett Blu’s spirit of adventure led her to sail and dive in the world’s oceans and she was really upset by the plastic pollution she saw everywhere. That’s why she called her band The Trash Mermaids. With the help of her fans and their communities, she hopes to fulfill the bigger purpose of protecting the world’s oceans and preserving its biodiversity.
The Trash Mermaids’ music is not defined by genre as they want to appeal to everyone, so are often described as a “genre-hopper.” Scarlett Blu writes and creates her own melodies while experimenting and pushing the rules of music. She pours her heart and soul into her songs, turning them into her diary. They are a manifestation of her authentic self.
