WASHINGTON, DC -- NAB has partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to create a "Going Green" guidebook that describes and encourages 'green' practices for radio and television broadcasters. "Going Green: A Broadcaster's Guide to Acting Locally," contains environmental facts and lists a variety of suggested efforts stations can undertake to promote a more eco-friendly environment and healthier lifestyle.
"We're proud to count the National Association of Broadcasters as partners in celebrating Earth Day 2009, and in our long-term efforts to protect human health and the environment," said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. "Together, we're educating audiences and industry members so that they can play a role in reducing environmental impacts and protecting communities."
The guidebook, which was published using recycled resources, was mailed to NAB members in advance of Earth Day.
"Small changes make a big difference, and when radio and television stations take action, the environment benefits, our communities benefit and the world benefits," wrote NAB President and CEO David Rehr in a letter accompanying the guidebook.
A copy of the Going Green guidebook can be viewed and downloaded in PDF format here.
This joint effort between the EPA and NAB will help all Americans learn more about ways they can participate in the vital actions and decisions that will better protect their families' health, their communities and our planet. As part of Earth Month, NAB is making available to stations a variety of unique PSAs and practical action tips for better air, water, health and greener places everywhere. Stations can access these online at www.NABSpotCenter.org.
