There have been many attempts at producing a viable radio from cardboard, some made it and some did not. In this case, it seems that design has been key and this is why the Card Radio from SuckUK looks and performs brilliantly, it is also almost totally green as the Radio parts are on an easily disposable card and the rest is easily recycled. This radio is great idea for festivals and holidays, when a radio is handy but you don’t want to carry one around with you all day long!

Some people would say we’ve already missed the boat on this, and some will say it’s never too late to miss a boat, in many ways it doesn’t matter, since this article is nothing to do with boats… but in the midst of man-made Armageddon, it’s time we all started to design, manufacture, and consume more responsibly. With this in mind we’ve teamed up with designer Christopher McNicholl and produced our first cardboard radio. The internals are housed in a simple card structure which can be recycled at the end of the product’s life.
Priced at around $41 in the US and £25 in the UK
