The Primetime Emmy Awards are going eco-friendly! This year’s show will bring green to the red carpet.

According to Mother Nature Network, Fox is working to “neutralize the event’s carbon footprint.” This includes “sorting and recycling of all event materials including paper, bottles, plastic, and batteries, renting everything from tables and chairs to linens, plants and service items such as non-disposable glasses, plates, silverware, platters and trays, and using signage printed with water-based ink on biodegradable materials or recycled aluminum.”

Waste from food and biodegradable items will be composted, and all food is being sourced from locally grown and organic foods. The event crew and staffmembers will be using bicycles to get around. Oh, and yup, even the red carpet will be “green!” “TV stars will walk a locally-produced carpet made from 25,000 feet of recycled material and illuminated by solar-powered, energy-saving LED and fluorescent lighting.” The carpet and solar panels will later be donated to Ronald McDonald House of Long Beach and Habitat for Humanity.

The hilarious Jane Lynch will be hosting this year, and she says it came as a surprise when she was asked by producers to host the event. “”Without a thought I said yes, and he walked away and I went, ‘What have I done?! Dear God, help me!'” And her singing and dancing, well, she says “My goal is that nobody will cringe, or at least very few people will cringe.” Lynch is the third woman to host the Emmys (without a co-host) – Angela Lansbury and Ellen DeGeneres have also hosted.

The Emmys will air live on Fox this Sunday September 18th at 8pm ET.
