Radon Media Campaigns
Living Healthy & Green
Do you want to know how to step out on the green side of building healthier? EPA has developed a media campaign, Living Healthy & Green (Green Sox), to educate consumers about the dangers of radon and the importance of testing. The campaign features Fuad Reveiz, a home builder and former professional football player, who builds his new homes radon-resistant and encourages others to do the same. These unique Public Service Announcements (PSAs) promote building healthier homes from the ground up. Ask media outlets in your area to use the Living Healthy & Green TV, radio and prints ads during January, National Radon Action Month, and in the months to follow. You can help to educate the public about how to improve air quality and preserve our families’ well-being indoors and out. Visit www.epa.gov/radon/media_campaigns.html
This media campaign is available in multiple mediums in English and Spanish. Plus, there are seven different music formats for radio. Every campaign element can be viewed and heard online at www.epapsa.com
When participating in home shows and green festivals, display EPA's "Build Green" pop-up banners, featuring Mr. Reveiz and radon-resistant new construction, at your booth. Contact Judy Molloy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-944-9134 for information on how you can borrow this important outreach tool.
- Display a sample copy of "Building Radon Out: A Step-by-Step Guide to Build Radon-Resistant Homes" at your booth. Read Building Radon Out (PDF) (84 pp, 5.5 M); find out how to order radon publications.
In 2008, EPA asked for 30-60 second video submissions with the theme "Radon: Test, Fix, Save a Life" encouraging Americans to test and fix their homes for radon, and we received more than 30 entries. The winning entry in the Radon Video Contest, titled “Eddie’s Story,” featured the true story of lung cancer survivor Eddie Metcalfe.
Eddie’s Story has now been developed into a powerful media campaign spearheaded by EPA to raise radon awareness. The new Eddie's Story Radon Public Service Announcement (PSA) materials are available to download and order. Partners can order TV kits and download embeddable video (including closed captioned) featuring the Eddie’s Story video PSA. Web banners and a print PSA for magazines or newspapers are also available. Encourage media outlets in your area to use this true testimonial to show the very real health risk caused by radon.
