The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

One of our favorite mags, Plenty, has delivered the scoop on some excellent green stories. Of particular interest to us is Oscar winning director/writer Paul Haggis’s decision to join New Mexico’s Green Filmmaking Program. We had no idea N.M. even had a sustainable filming group in place. From the article,

“Providing training, incentives, and a range of resources from bio-diesel generators to rainwater harvesting, the state’s effort encourages productions to reduce their carbon footprint through eco-certification, while supplying the local business community new opportunities.”

Haggis decided to join the program while working on his latest film In the Valley of Elah. Word on the street is that this latest film is Oscar-bait for star Tommy Lee Jones, who delivers an incredible performance.

On the radio front, American Public Media (producers of Marketplace, A Prairie Home Companion) will launch a new series this November called Consumed. From the site,

“We’ll follow consumerism from its origins to its dominance over the world’s economy and, arguably, its culture. And we’ll examine how, and if, it might be adapted to reduce its destructive consequence while keeping store shelves stocked. ”

I’ve been missing public radio since I started walking to work. These new specials, however, will give me greater impetus to find a way to tune in. Great stuff!
