Early this morning, myself and a handful of groovy green bloggers headed down to NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center to learn more about their eco-friendly ‘Green is Universal’ program — an ongoing green initiative “dedicated to raising green awareness, effecting positive change to the environment, and greening its own operations.”

The NBC team gave us a special tour of the facilities and showed us just how they are working towards a lighter footprint. Whether it’s by providing the Olympics’ 1200 person crew with fully biodegradable, 20 oz reusable water bottles, or using sustainable building materials and LED lighting throughout their studios, it’s clear that NBC is serious about sustainability.

One of the tour’s major highlights was stopping by the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ set — perhaps the greenest studio in the building. Indeed, Studio 6B is tricked out with a slew of sustainable features, including bamboo wood, carpet made out of recycled plastic water bottles, reclaimed and refurbished audience seats from Radio City Music Hall, and salvaged doors refurbished from shops. Fallon’s show also uses Low or No VOC paints and constructs their sets with responsibility harvested FSC plywood.

Oh yeah, and did I mention Jimmy Fallon stopped by to say hello? Because Jimmy Fallon stopped by to say hello! Fallon was excited to chat about his program’s cool eco elements and also sang us a recycling parody he performed this past November, during NBCU’s Green Week. You can check it out below!

By the end of the tour, I was convinced NBC has a genuine interest in sustainability and is excited about incorporating even more eco-friendly features in the future. And honestly, what could be better than that?

Check out the pictures and video after the jump to see some of your favorite stars get their green on.
