Etón Corporation Celebrates Earth Day

Award Poster - Image of Radios and Awards

PALO ALTO, CA, April 2nd, 2009 – April 22nd, 2009 marks the beginning of the Green Generation Campaign hosted by Earthday Network which is a two-year initiative whose core principles are based on renewable energy and an individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.  What better way to support this important cause than to invest in products that are built and designed on the principle of renewable energy?

Etón’s line of independent, self-powered radios require no plugs, no batteries and no frills. With award-winning solar powered design and hand-crank technologies Etón Corporations line of sustainable products all offer AM/FM radio reception, rechargeable Ni-MH battery pack, flashlight, siren, LED safety lights and even a cell phone charger. In addition to being an all-band radio, the Solarlink FR600 can be powered via solar power and also includes the Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) feature. S.A.M.E stands for Specific Area Message Encoding. It's a system of six digit codes that are programmed into the radio to bring only the emergency data for your specific area, such as your county, during an alert broadcast. See www.weather.gov/nwr/same.htm for more information. Like the Solarlink FR600, the Solarlink FR500 and Solarlink FR360 can be powered via the suns rays and can also charge your MP3 player!  Finally, the smallest contender in the Etón lineup is the FR160 Microlink which allows the user to tune into NOAA, FCC and EAS public alert systems so that you always know what is going on.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer such an extensive line of self-powered, independent, energy-conscious products and feel strongly that with their cool design and renewable energy source, there is simply no substitute for these units.  This Earth Day, make a mindful decision to buy green with Etón’s sustainable product line,” says Esmail Amid-Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation.

Etón Corporations line of sustainable radios range in price from $30 USD to $150 USD. For more information on where these products are available visit www.etoncorp.com.
