We’ve heard of restaurants taking steps to ban bottled water from their menus, but this is the first time we’ve seen a television series enact the same policy.
ABC’s hit series Grey’s Anatomy has taking plastic out of the equation and issued all cast and crew a thermos instead. Actress Brooke Smith joined the cast this year and was surprised by the green initiative. From the article,
“Smith, who has made several guest appearances in previous seasons of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ says, ‘I got a bottle. I got a little thermos. I think one thing that should be mentioned and applauded is that they have banished plastic bottles from the set. Isn’t that cool? It’s the first time I’ve seen it. The thermos says ‘Grey’s Anatomy Season 4.’ You have to be responsible with that thermos. You have to bring it with you.'”
Nice, right? It’s great to see a show (that isn’t a part of NBC’s green campaign) making smart moves to help out the world. It’s just another reason to watch and see if Meredith and McDreamy will get back together. Not that I, um, care…
