"We’re proud to be among the first carbon neutral radio stations in the country. It’s important to us as a station to limit our impact on the planet, while also proudly sharing our commitment to the environment with our listeners. We aim to choose projects local to our community to ensure the most impact in our backyard.”

— Brian Farrell, WCLZ Music Director

RESULTS FOR PEOPLE & THE PLANET

Since 2008, WCLZ has supported 14 climate change fighting projects, eliminating more than 2,700 tonnes of CO2!

Eliminating that much carbon from the atmosphere is like removing 602 cars from the road or neutralizing the energy use emissions from 302 households for one year!
