AND FINALLY: We All Live In A Green Submarine…

The Abbey Road record studios in London – where The Beatles recorded some of their fab-iest fab four hits in the 1960s, including We All Live In A Yellow Submarine – have gone ‘green.’

Music recorded at Abbey Road – the oldest purpose built recording studio in the world –  will now be powered by the wind and the sun, after Universal Music switched supplier to green energy company, Ecotricity.

David Sharpe, Chief Operating Officer of Universal Music UK, said: “Universal is committed to sustainability, as are many of our artists, and we hope other organisations will follow our lead and take similar steps to power their operations with green energy.”

Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, said: “Powering a business with green energy is the biggest single step that any business can take to cut the emissions that cause air pollution and climate change.

“Simply by switching to green energy, Universal Music UK will reduce the environmental impact of their own operations ­– while also supporting Britain’s energy independence and the green economy.”

All to-gether now; ‘We All Live In A Green Submarine, A Green Submarine, A Green…’
