GO GREEN

Friends of the Phonograph celebrate the phonograph for the revolution that it began in home and personal entertainment. But if you look at the original talking machine it also relatively environmentally friendly. After all, if a machine can be wound up and still play 100 years after it was made it has some pretty unique qualities for a consumer product, e.g., a machine requiring no electricity (and hopefully no more ending up in landfills).

The motto of Phonographians?

SAVE ENERGY - WIND A PHONOGRAPH

 

Friends of the Phonograph also support other green measures.

The Westminster Colorado chapter of Friends of the Phonograph have adopted the walking path and pond of one of the city's open spaces known as Mushroom Pond. Originally inspired by their dog loving Friends of Nipper (since the adopted trail is a popular place to walk dogs), Phonographians keep this trail clean for people and man's best friend.
