Evan Almighty hits theaters today, and hopes to spread a green message all around. From production of the film, to the premiere, to the actual messaging inside the film, Mother Nature is Queen.

“We wanted to live the themes of the movie,” said Tom Shadyac, director of the film. “Instead of destroying [the planet] to talk about not destroying it, we wanted to walk the walk.” Or ride the ride, you could say…seeing that Tom bought bikes for the entire cast & crew.

They’re planting an Almighty Forest of trees to offset carbon emissions and donated all of their usable goods to Habitat for Humanity. Sounds like Shadyak is even working on a “green movie” certification process, so that we can easily tell which movies “Leave No Trace”.

The premiere was a huge green party that sent everyone home with everything from a reusable grocery bag to CFL light bulbs.

I love Morgan Freeman‘s quote, “There is a planet and then there’s us. We are the new dinosaurs. And if we aren’t careful, we’re going to wind up just like the old ones did.”
