Radio, The Environmental Medium
There is no question, radio is the most environmentally friendly medium. Radio doesn’t use paper to deliver our product unlike newspaper, direct mail, or other flyer based approaches. You do not require large short term equipment like televisions or computers to enjoy radio.
- New York Times consumes over 50,000 trees in one Sunday edition.
- Every 5 years the average household TVs and computers are replaced which adds 4750 tonnes of lead, 4.5 tonnes of cadmium, and 1.1 tonnes of mercury to landfills across Canada.
- Radio devices do not become obsolete and can be used for many years reducing e-waste.
- Radio does not contribute to visual noise pollution.
