Jason Mraz walked the red carpet at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards wearing only sustainable clothing.

"Nothing I'm wearing has a negative impact," Mraz explained, showing off his slate blue Eco Tux, crafted by Simon Carter. "The suit is made of recycled water bottles and wool, and the tie is made from recycled cassette tapes, so you can listen to the past nominees of the Grammys," he joked.

Mraz topped the eco-friendly outfit off with fair-trade shoes from Guatemala. "You choose what you want to do, what you want to wear," he said. "It’s all about making conscious choices." FULL POST

The night's biggest standout? A searing John Fogerty-Keith Urban Young re-make of Young's 1989 anthem, "Rockin' in the Free World" that left the industry audience on its feet and cheering.
