Welcome to the first-ever eco-friendly record club

As much as everyone loves vinyl, it is an environmentally-unfriendly format. Polyvinyl chloride is, after all, not just a petroleum byproduct but it’s also a non-biodegradable plastic. What can be done to square things with the planet?

Naked Record Club is one of several organizations promoting so-called “eco-friendly” records (cf. Evolution Music and ElasticStage). Based in France and founded by a couple of Brits, you can subscribe on a three, six, or 12-month basis to receive never-before-on record releases manufactured at a Dutch pressing plant that’s 99% carbon-neutral.

Here’s a video on what they do.
