A Greener Red Carpet

Hooray for Hollywood!

awards going green

It's that time of the year...awards season!  Both the Grammys and the Oscars are this year, and both awards shows are going green.  

Here's how:

  • The red carpets are made from recycled water bottles.
  • The food served will be local and organic
  • The power will be 100% renewable.  
  • The food will be served on reusable china and glassware.
  • The silverware will be compostable.
  • Food waste will be composted.
  • All glass, plastic, and alumnium will be recycled.

All of this has been done with the help of NRDC's Allen Hershkowitz.  Hershkowitz has been working over the last four years to help green awards programs.

While Hollywood culture still has a long way to go in terms of truly going green (think private jets, limos, jewelry, etc), it's refreshing to see that these awards ceremonies are doing their part to reduce waste.
