Emmys Go Green

  • Posted by on August 26, 2010 in Business
  • If you needed any more evidence that "greening" has gone mainstream, here it is. This year's Emmy Award show, which takes place in L.A. this Sunday, will be a sustainable event, with eco-focused features that include a set built from recyclable materials, energy efficient lighting, rechargeable batteries, and alternative fuel/hybrid transportation.

    The show's crew will be using reusable water bottles, eating local, organic, and free range food, and utilizing enhanced recycling programs. Even the leftovers will be recycled and donated whenever possible.

    The shift to environmental sustainability starts small, but it's encouraging to see that even the biggest players are starting to catch on.
