The Coolest NYC Radio Becomes Carbon Neutral


The Lot Radio, an independent online radio station streaming live, every day, from a reclaimed shipping container on an empty lot in Williamsburg has decided to calculate, reduce, and offset its (tiny) carbon footprint.


Livestreaming the best residents and visiting DJs of New York, The Lot Radio is a little world of its own. A world with 2 poles: The radio, that streams live from 8am to midnight every day, and the kiosk that funds the radio by selling coffee, pastries, beer, and wine during the same hours.


The radio station uses reclaimed material, works with local suppliers, and installed a reclaimed container equipped with energy efficient appliances. The carbon footprint of the radio station is four times smaller than the footprint of an average American household!


Spending some time at the Lot Radio is probably one of the most environmentally friendly leisure activities you can enjoy in New York. A pleasure to be enjoyed without reserve!
