Los Angeles, CA, September 17, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Green Patriot Working Group announced today that Green Patriot Radio with David Steinman, a weekly Internet radio show focused on environmental issues and natural health, has adopted a half-mile stretch of Shoreline Drive in Long Beach, California, near the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Queen Mary. In the Long Beach Adopt-a-Street program, sponsors pay for litter removal along the section of roadway that they sponsor.
Green Patriot Radio (GPR) is one of the first organizations to participate in the city’s Adopt-a-Street program, preceded by popular Adopt-a-Highway programs nationwide. The Adopt-a-Street sign features the radio show’s website address (www.greenpatriotradio.com) and is located on southbound Shoreline Drive between Chestnut Place and Aquarium Way, across the street from the Pike at Long Beach (a shopping and entertainment center), just north of the Pine Avenue Pier, and across the harbor from The Queen Mary. The sign was adopted through Litter Removal Services of America.
Sheila Huettl, marketing director for the Green Patriot Working Group explains, “We chose to sponsor Shoreline Drive adjacent to the Aquarium of the Pacific because we wanted to reach Long Beach residents and visitors who have a special appreciation for nature and wildlife. We believe that all people with pro-environmental values will enjoy Green Patriot Radio, which covers a wide variety of environmental and natural health topics. We also wanted to select marketing venues that would be environmentally responsible and benefit the community. From an environmental standpoint, an Adopt-a-Street sign is superior to an electric billboard, for example. We were delighted when we learned that Shoreline Drive was available, as it’s a landmark in the city of Long Beach.”
David Steinman, host of GPR and founder of the Green Patriot movement, said, “I’m very proud that Green Patriot is a Adopt-a-Street sponsor, helping to keep Long Beach litter free. This is our first Adopt-a-Street sign, hopefully of many to come throughout America. We want to spread awareness about the show while helping to clean up America at the same time. As an environmental journalist, author, publisher and consumer advocate for over 12 years, I am greatly enjoying the radio show as an immediate venue to communicate with the public about breaking environmental issues every week.”
GPR features a wide variety of environmental topics—including marine life—and recently featured an interview with the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program about seafood sustainability. The topics on GPR range from cutting-edge green innovation in transportation, energy, construction, and business to sustainability, climate change, preservation of wildlife, rainforests and land, to green investing, toxic consumer products, politics, green media, world trends, eco-fashion, and much more.
