Sustainable CD's Guide

If you're releasing a CD take a moment to learn how you can create a green product that will not only look great, but also communicate your environmental commitment to fans and music industry peers alike.

This guide shows how you can make your CD releases as green as possible, by using 100% recyclable packaging (with the IG mark logo), sustainably printing the insert booklet, and working with the supply chain to be as green as possible while playing their part in creating the product!
