Digital distribution key to a greener music industry

Digital distribution service Record Union recently distributed first green release from eco-label, Archangel Green. A 100% digital release, it sets new standards for how music can be produced and distributed in an environmentally friendly way, bringing the green agenda right into the centre of popular culture.

Archangel Green is the first ever UK Record Label fully committed to a greener music industry. Their studio is powered by a green tariff provider, and when band "The Phoenix Rose" signed to the label they both agreed to numerous clauses aimed at making the production, performance and distribution of their music as environmentally friendly as possible.

Being released solely in digital format, the distribution of the release will be far more environmentally friendly when compared to CD releases, as it requires no physical transportation or manufactured raw materials. Record Union is a music service which has arisen out of the changing music market, and is keen to support new ideas within the industry - not just those which guarantee a better future for musicians, but the whole planet.

The catchy single "Sick and Tired" is accompanied by a strong media campaign, and has received support from many organisations concerned with promoting a greener agenda, such as The Big Issue, THTC, Natural Collection and Ooffoo. 10% of the profits from the single will be donated to The Big Issue.
