British company claims to have created the world’s first bioplastic disc

in the music industry, the old is still gold with vinyl. The needle has been falling for generations. So why get involved? It’s one of the dirty secrets of the music industry. It turns out that making vinyl is incredibly toxic. We know that it was the chlorine gases from PVC which also contain dioxins that led Mark Carey on a *** four year journey to reinvent the record by turning black vinyl green. I want products that are sustainable in the 21st century environment, so I had to *** start a new business and do it myself. Evolution Music turns the tables by testing an eco-friendly secret recipe featuring record-spinning sugar and starches. They hope one day will become an industry standard and that’s music to artists’ ears. I listen to any crackling pops, surface noises and that’s fine. Producer Rob Casse thinks the sound rivals vinyl. We think the quality is extremely high, about as high as vinyl. We have maybe 95% blood records. Founder Craig Evans says his jaw dropped when he heard the bioplastic record the first time I heard those press tests I couldn’t believe what I was listening to was basically made of bioplastic and trash plants. It’s incredible. Michael Stipe and pioneering American artist BD Wolf are among the musicians getting into the groove and artists are increasingly shouting at labels that we need to be more environmentally friendly, raising their voices to rock the industry towards a *** greener future.
