New study:

Streaming video more ‘green’ than DVDs? Billions of kilograms of carbon dioxide could be saved by scrapping discs, study shows

But this is hardly the only part of the moviemaking industry that is incredibly wasteful. Some efforts at sustainable production may seem trivial at first glance. As cultural leaders, the cutting edge that people naturally look to in their off-hours, the movie industry has a responsibility to promote sustainability.

By simply issuing reusable water bottles and filtering water thousands of plastic bottles can be saved. This practice is good for your home as well.  Water bottles are extremely wasteful and the plastic leaches into your drinking water to boot.

Productions that are green-friendly are demanding LED lighting systems, saving massive amounts of electricity.  Hybrid cars are in wide use, and these should be phased out in favor of electric.

We are an insanely wasteful culture, destroying the natural ecosystems at unprecedented rates.  This should matter to you.
