The green carpet rolled out for The Environmental Media Association’s EMA Awards this Saturday at the Warner Bros. movie lot, which was hosted by Olivia Munn and Jason Ritter. The event, which was completely plastic water bottle free, honored environmental films and television series, tackled topics such as alternative fuel sources and even featured a live Native American Dance troupe.

Celebrity guests included the brilliant James Cameron and his beautiful and green conscious wife, Suzy Amis Cameron (famous for her own green fashion choices). They were both on hand when Avatar snagged the night’s award for Feature Film. On the green carpet, Cameron explained the significance of how his film was shot and its overall environmental impact.

“Let’s look at the big picture,” he said. “Avatar was a film that took place in an enormous rain forest. Can’t shoot big battle scenes in a rain forest. It was 100 percent CGI. There were a few people playing multiple roles so the footprint compared to the visual impact was very tiny. But ultimately it’s a multi-hundred million dollar movie, there are a lot of people working on computers, and those computers are absorbing energy. There’s no way you can say this movie was made with one watt of power. But you have to weigh the value of the film with the environmental impact in the public consciousness.” – James Cameron,  on making Avatar

Antonio Villaraigosa

The dashing Los Angeles mayor is fitter than ever before: In a Los Angeles Times interview in January, he boasted about his recent 20-pound weight loss, thanks to regular yoga workouts and a healthy eating plan that includes Meatless Mondays.

Thank you everyone who attended the Home Tree Celebration with James Cameron and/or helped us spread the LOVE about the event.

Earth Day became a unique lifetime experience for 5,000+ inter-city at-risk 12-17 year old teens who were bused in for a special Avatar screening, including Q&A with James Cameron and cast, and special Eco-training. All of them left inspired Eco-Warriors!

Then, the evening started with an intimate Strategic Summit with a selective group of environmentalists, film makers, media and celebrities, where everyone showed their commitment to a long-term peaceful Eco-War and Eco-Life. During this meeting James got the Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to publicly commit to Meatless Mondays. For those of you who wonder how this can affect the environment, please read the report below and feel free to do your own research:

Agriculture is responsible for an estimated 14 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases. A significant portion of these emissions come from methane, which, in terms of its contribution to global warming, is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The U.S. Food and Agriculture Organization says that agricultural methane output could increase by 60 percent by 2030 [Source: Times Online]. The world’s 1.5 billion cows and billions of other grazing animals emit dozens of polluting gases, including lots of methane. Two-thirds of all ammonia comes from cows.

Finally a Green Carpet and a private reception where we showed our support to the Amazonian indigenes who are fighting to stop the depletion of the so-called “Earth lungs”, Cameron received the first Home Tree award, Rosario Dawson showed she could easily win the Oscar for the Best DJ of the Year and all celebrities showed their friendly nature and support. An unforgettable day!

Blessings and remember to love your Planet every day of the year!!!
