We know DVDs are wasteful in the end, but some of the lucky ducks on your list might love 'em. Or, perhaps silent time in front of the TV will be the glue tenuously adhering your family after days of holiday togetherness? In either case, consider the films on the Environmental Media Association's Environmental Media Award nominee list. Each year the organization honors films and TV shows with an environmental message, as well as musicians who make an impact. Last month, the EMA celebrated its winners, including Ice Age: The Meltdown and An Inconvenient Truth (no-brainer).Since Hollywood's pollution problems have been thoroughly spelled out, it's comforting to know that the EMA also gives out Green Seal awards recognizing "Environmentally conscious efforts regarding set construction, energy usage, resource conservation, recycling, etc." You can see this year's honorees here.
The Missions in Music award went to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, in part for implementing flax/hemp/post-consumer paper in their CD packaging.
The site allows you to check out five years of nominees and winners (we told you all about it last year), making it easy to support eco-entertainment with your gifting power! Bonus points if you can name the winning eco-celeb wearing Deborah Lindquist. ::Environmental Media Association
