Midland Radio is working to reduce the amount of plastic used in its packaging.

To celebrate Earth Day on April 22, 2022, we're sharing more about our efforts to become more environmentally friendly.

REDUCING PLASTIC

For the past year, Midland Radio has worked to limit the the plastic it uses on its new product packaging.

The goal is to eventually eliminate plastic from the packaging completely. 

To do so, Midland has been placing products in fiber trays to avoid the use of clamshell packaging. 

Also, by reducing the product box size, Midland Radio is cutting back on materials and increasing shipping efficiency. 

CALL2RECYCLE

Midland Radio is also part of a battery recycle program with Call2Recycle.

Customers can drop off their batteries for free at locations like The Home Depot, Lowe's, and Staples. 

Midland also recycles batteries it receives via returns.

According to UC Santa Cruz, batteries contain corrosive materials and heavy metals that can contaminate the environment. 

The toxic materials within batteries could be released into the environment. That poses a serious threat to human health and the environment. If batteries are placed in landfills, the toxic materials can leak into the soil, potentially reaching peoples' water supply. If incinerated, batteries will produced toxic fumes.
