Emmy Green Room Goes Green, As Does the Show

Emmy Green Room ConceptThis year, the green room for the Emmy’s will be just that. The spot where presenters and winners will be hanging out before and after being on stage is eco-friendly this year. This is the sixth year that Architectural Digest has teamed up with the Emmy Awards to design the green room, but it is the first year that the room itself will be green.

The room is built from scratch each year, but this year it will feature reclaimed wood, natural fibers, and antiques which are inherently eco-friendly! Check out their design blog to see how the room is built and how decisions are made.

Of course, the green room isn’t the only thing going environmental on Sunday. FOX has their “Green with Emmy” plan all set, as well. They have figured out how to get renewable energy for the Shrine Auditorium for the month of September. (And let’s hope that The Shrine decides to keep up with that!)

A solar canopy will be mounted over the Red Carpet grandstands, as well. It will produce supplemental power for the red carpet area. And yes, the carpet is to be red, not green. Though we hear it’s still made of recycle plastic bottles and will be donated & reused after the event. The solar canopy will be donated to a local middle school.

And the theme continues…CFL & LED lighting in the press room, donating almost everything after the event, using alternative fuels & transportation, and local and organic foods served on actual plates, not disposables.

I love it! Just please, please promise me, FOX & Emmys that this will become the norm, and though you may not talk about it every year after this, environmentalism will just become a way of life. We’re on a great path. Let’s keep it up!
