Dogwood Alliance has been working with giants in the music industry like Universal Music Group and Sony Home Entertainment to green their packaging for the last few years. Last week, our friends at The Musician’s Guide contacted us and asked us to share their latest infographic on the good and bad in the music industry. Hope you enjoy!
