Turns out that the very people representing Hollywood’s elite are changing their old ways too. The LATimes has a story on William Morris, a talent agency for such stars as John Travolta and Scarlett Johansson, going eco by moving into a new certified green office building. The features include carbon neutral air, recyclable building materials, solar devices and low-flow toilets. From the article,
“The decision to go green was partly personal for Wiatt (CEO), who drives a limited edition Saturn hybrid sport utility vehicle and whose wife, Elizabeth, is an environmental activist who serves on the board of the Natural Resources Defense Council. In part, the move may be a necessity as more and more Prius-driving clients take their agency’s green credentials into consideration.”
Ah, the trickle-down effect. Will we see Ari Gold getting rid of the Maserati on Entourage in favor of a Prius for Season 4? Probably not. However if this trend keeps up, look for this fictional talent agency to at least start sporting some greener shades.
