PODCAST - ADGREEN
22 March 2018

Just before Christmas, DAVID had a meeting with Jo Coombes, the founder of AdGreen. She described how two years ago, she'd come to the conclusion that it was time to stop whingeing about the flagrant disregard for the environment she witnessed on TVC film sets and actually do something about it.

With terrific support from the APA, Jo has made huge progress in her mission to persuade the industry that by implementing a few simple measures, they can have a dramatic impact on a project's carbon footprint.

Our conversation led to a podcast - recorded two weeks ago - with Jo herself, Dougal Wilson, Alessia Small, Rupert Reynolds-Maclean and Morgan Whitlock, to which you can now listen... either by clicking the link on this page or by searching for 'The David Reviews Podcasts' on iTunes.


To find out more about AdGreen, visit their website or email Jo Coombes at jo@adgreen-apa.net.

The David Reviews podcasts would not be possible without the wonderful people at String & Tins. They provide studio facilities, a brilliant sound engineer, editing assistance, invaluable advice and unbeatable hospitality.
