Green Bits Radio Spots

Doing our bit to reach out to the listening public

Green Bits are public service announcements designed to share information about different ways that individuals can join the effort to keep Cincinnati green.

Most of these are designed to work in the home or office. None are particularly earth-shaking. But small things add up. More importantly, they contribute to a state of mind, to forming the habit of living in a way that incorporates a conscientiousness about the environment we all share.

Here’s a sample of the Green Bits that have been sent to radio and television stations in Greater Cincinnati. The links are designed to play on Quick Time or other standard programs. Let us know what you think!
