Now the station plans to use renewable energy to power its transmitter and replace company cars with hybrids. In-studio artists will perform in The Globe’s Custom Greenhouse, which has been fitted with low-voltage lighting and recycled flooring. They’ll also be giving listeners tips on energy conservation and other eco-topics. Tune in to find out more.
