Green Oscar?

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) partnered with the producers of the 79th Annual Academy Awards "to significantly reduce the impact the telecast and related events had on the environment." Can this be a model for other event telecasts?

The NRDC website details the program well, as does its follow-up to the 2007 event.
