Holding an awards show requires quite a bit of energy. Between all the attendees, many having to travel by plane to be there, the venue, the food, and the after party, one night takes a heavy toll on the environment. Thankfully, the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards is reducing its carbon footprint by planting native trees with its partner, the for-profit reforestation company Patagonia Sur.

According to the SAG Awards, “Patagonia Sur is planting 3,400 trees — two for each of the 1,700 guests at the Post SAG Awards Gala hosted by People magazine and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. In their gala gift bags, guests will find a code enabling them to log on patagoniasuroffsets.com/SagAwardsForest/ where they will be able to affix their names to the trees being planted in their honor within a part of Chilean Patagonia, now called the SAG Awards Forest. Viewers inspired by these efforts can also evaluate their personal carbon footprint by going to the same website.”

Patagonia Sur’s Valle California project planted an impressive one million trees in 2012. Glad to see with the SAG Awards that they are getting off to an impressive start in 2013. The reforestation efforts by Patagonia Sur began in 2010.

If you’d like to watch the SAG Awards, it will be airing live on TNT and TBS on January 27th.
