Kevin Bacon Makes Set of "The Following" Eco-Friendly

In one of the opening scenes of Kevin Bacon’s new show “The Following”, the actor grabs a plastic disposable water bottle and takes a swig. Thankfully, that’s just a prop. Any beverage container off camera is totally green.

When filming started for the new show, Bacon gave each member of the cast and crew an aluminum water bottle to ensure that the set would be environmentally friendly.

The actor told Wenn, “We don’t have any bottles of water on the set. We have coolers. We have compostable dishes and silverware.”

According to Bacon, Hollywood is getting more and more environmentally conscious. Anyone who has been on a film set knows that if no one is making green decisions, the process can generate a lot of waste very fast.

“The Following” star said about other sets he’s been on that have been green, “I worked on a film in L.A. called “Crazy, Stupid, Love” which actually had something really cool; a giant truck with a solar panel that powered the entire base camp. They called it the mothership. It hydraulically folded down these giant panels which is great in southern California; I don’t know if in Brooklyn (New York), on “The Following”, we would be as successful, since so much of this show is shot at night!”

Other green filmmakers include Darren Aronofsky (he also banned disposable water bottles on set), and the Coen brothers (who composted and recycled on set).

Alec Baldwin wants turkey-less Thanksgiving, ignores other animals

No less turkeys would be saved if Baldwin and Farm Sanctuary asked people to go vegan.


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
