For the first time in its 96 year history the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner will be eco-friendly. The association hopes to reduce the carbon impact of the annual formal gala by using renewable energy for the event and by purchasing paper products, supplies, and services that are not associated with deforestation, global warming, toxic waste, or species extinction. The Natural Resources Defense Council partnered with the White House on the initiative.

“This will be the most eco-friendly dinner ever hosted by the association,” said Edwin Chen, the group’s president and a Bloomberg News White House correspondent. “And we encourage our members and guests to join in that effort, such as by car-pooling, using hybrid vehicles and, for long-distance travelers to Washington, buying carbon-offsets.”

The meal will feature sustainable and locally produced foods and wine. Uneaten meals will be donated to a local community kitchen.

Jay Leno, who will fly into DC by private jet, will headline the May 1 black-tie dinner. Other stars expected to be in attendance include Elisabeth Shue, Justin Bieber, Ryan Seacrest, Kristin Davis, Scarlett Johansson, Betty White, Alec Baldwin, Julianna Margulies, Chelsea Handler, Ewan McGregor, Jimmy Fallon, Mariska Hargitay, Steven Spielberg, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michael Douglas, Jessica Alba, Queen Latifah, and Chris O’Donnell. Of course, President Obama will attend and address the gala’s guests.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals
