NRDC Theatre Greening Advisor

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has teamed up with the Broadway Green Alliance to create the NRDC Theatre Greening Advisor - a guide to help theatres across the country implement eco-intelligent practices. 

By promoting energy efficiency, recycling programs, waste reduction, water conservation, and other smart operations, theatres and productions will help keep our nation’s air and water clean, reduce their contribution to global warming, and see cost saving benefits.

Theatre and the environment are inextricably linked. Without clean air, clean water, and a healthy climate, our enjoyment of most productions – indoor or outdoor – would not be possible. In fact, nature is the ultimate source of all economic value. No commerce or culture is possible without clean air and water; fertile topsoil; a chemically stable atmosphere; raw materials for food, energy and medicine; or the natural processing of waste by the millions of species inhabiting our soil, water, and air.
