Greening the GRAMMYs: It All Adds Up

By itself, the GRAMMYs telecast does not instigate major ecological impacts. But each and every procurement decision, and all operations, are reviewed with an eye towards reducing the event’s ecological footprint. Not that everything can be done, at least not yet. Cost considerations limit some of our options. Nevertheless, the paper products and other supplies that were bought and the services procured were selected with sensitivity toward reducing the threats we face from global warming, species extinction, deforestation, toxic waste, and hazardous chemicals in our water and food. Some of the highlights from this year’s initiative are below. - Greening the GRAMMYs: It All Adds Up | Allen Hershkowitz's Blog | Switchboard, from NRDC
