because of environmental reasons.
See also: everything consumed in a physical format that doesn't need to be... Apart from maybe books, cos they're important, like... And vinyls, because of the extra warm sound.
tablets, phones and computers don't have ANY environmental impact nooo
it's 'the cloud' rite, so fluffy and ethereal and freee
and strict controls on e-waste. But I reckon we can probably reduce environmental damage by removing physical waste elsewhere at the same time anyway. It's not really an either/or thing.
neither/nor thing :(
depressing isn't it?
they don't necessarily mean they put it on an actual ship.
but also care about the environment. SORRY.
I prefer vinyl to the environment
really has to be pretty low down in the list of environmental problems this planet faces.
but this thread would suggest otherwise
you'll have to prize my vinyl from my dead body, even eco nut Thom Yorke still makes exception for vinyl.
hang on don't you run a record label? wut.
The environment begins at home. Should one murderer not go to prison just because there are other murderers who were more prolific?
No Joseph_SP, murder is murder.
Then capturing the mass-murderer is a better use of these resources then the one-off murderer.

And look at images on Google image search instead.

Best burn it all.

but we'll have GLOBAL WARMING to make up for it

from years of vinyl production, it's too late to change it now
And then see how you feel about this.
