MPAA pushes for green


The Motion Picture Association of America has released data showing a green push in Hollywood. The major film studios collectively diverted 58%, or 20,500 tons, of studio sets and other solid waste from landfills to reuse and recycling, the MPAA said. Working in conjunction with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, association members prevented the emission of 62,147 metric tons of greenhouse gases. "The major Hollywood film studios are voluntarily engaged in individual and collective efforts to improve environmental quality in California and around the globe," MPAA chairman-CEO Dan Glickman said.
