a monthly post
This site is dedicated to helping us reset our Zero Carbon Footprint
The Academy Awards has always been a venue for the most glamorous people in the free world, and today Hollywood is using its glamour to remind us of what is truly important!
EVERYTHING YOU DO, MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Making movies: Pakistan documentary A Girl in the River. The movie depicts a girl who is a survivor of an honor killing attempt. Female director Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, 37 and the only Oscar woman of color 2016, says that because of her film, the government is changing the laws to better protect women.
Making music: Taylor Guitars works at providing the best musical instruments and, at the same time, supporting and enhancing hard wood forests around the world. If you live in San Diego, the factory tour is free. https://www.taylorguitars.com/about/sustainability
WHEN YOU ARE GIVEN A MOMENT!
Be prepared for your one shot at the mic.
Equality: Patricia Arquette won a Grammy and seized the moment to speak out for equality for women: https://www.change.org/p/ratify-the-equal-rights-amendment-equalmeansequal?recruiter=3298667&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink
Sustainability: Mad Max: Fury Road, Jenny Beaven won an Oscar at the Academy Awards for Costume Design. She embraced her moment on stage, “…it could be horribly prophetic, Mad Max, if we’re not kinder to each other, and if we don’t stop polluting our atmosphere, so you know, it could happen.”
Climate Change: No one was more direct than Leonardo DiCaprio when he received his Oscar for Best Actor for The Revenant. He addressed climate change and sends us to standfortrees.org for an easy way to help a big problem.
YES, IT MATTERS WHAT YOU WEAR!
“Green Carpet” is a fabulous project launched by ELUXE Magazine. ELUXE is the world’s first ever sustainable luxury fashion and lifestyle publication and is this month’s role model for our Zero Carbon Footprint Fashion Statement! http://eluxemagazine.com/people/eco-oscars-best-green-carpet/
Stars and designers help to redefine Secondhand at the 2016 Academy Awards
Stars: Olga Kurylenko (Bond girl Camille in the 22nd James Bond movie Quantum of Solace) and actor Kellan Lutz “turned the Oscar red carpet green.” Kurylenko wore a draped red dress designed by Alice Elia (winner of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress competition). Her dress was made from Global Organic Textile Standard-certified 100% organic “peace silk” and dyed with sappanwood and madder root to achieve its crimson shade. Her date Legend of Hercules star Lutz’s dashing tuxedo was made from fibres created from recycled plastic bottles.
Cate Blanchett wore sustainably mined earrings (created by a design collaboration between Chopard and Livia Firth) at the Golden Globes.
For the premiere of Blue Jasmine, she also donned a charming vintage Balenciaga number.

BLACK LIVES MATTER!
Be prepared for when you have your one moment at the 2016 Academy Awards to Stand Up and Speak Out. Seize the moment! Host Chris Rock reserved his last moment to remind us as the 2016 Academy Awards ended that BLACK LIVES MATTER.
2016 Hollywood stepped up and encouraged us all to Stand Up and Speak Out, knowing that what we do as individuals definitely makes a difference.
