Academy Awards portrayed that both organizers and attendees tried to be
more sustainable as well as demonstrated their effort in becoming more carbon
Held a few days back, the Award embraced plant-based, vegan appetizer before the ceremony. Luncheon, the organizers of the annual Oscar Nominees surprisingly introduced a plant-based menu.
In an earlier released statement reported by The Independent, the Academy Of Motion Pictures, Arts And Science had said: ‘The Academy is an organization of storytellers from across the world. We owe our global membership a commitment to supporting the planet.’
‘And for the past decades, the Academy has been committed to reducing its carbon footprint. The Oscars, for the past seven years, has had a net-zero carbon imprint. We will continue to expand our sustainability plan with the actual goal of becoming carbon neutral.’
Fortunately, attendees at the Awards show trailed the same route. A lot of the attendees chose to take a more eco-friendly approach when selecting their outfit. Instead of purchasing a new, custom made gowns, a handful of celebs decided to recycle their earlier worn attire.
#1 Elizabeth Banks
Elizabeth Banks decided to re-wear a beautiful red-gown previously worn in 2004. The beautiful actress, 46, appeared gorgeous in the dress worn 16years back. ‘It’s so gorgeous and it fits so well. Why not wear it again.’ Elizabeth wrote on Instagram.
She chose the outfit in a bid to bring awareness to the importance of sustainability in fashion and consumerism as it relates to climate change, labor and women, ocean pollution, production, and consumption.
#2 Jane Fonda
Jane Fonda is widely recognized as an advocate for sustainability.
Having participated actively in climate change protests over time, Jane also
decided to recycle a previously worn dress.

Additionally, the actress chose ethically harvested gold and sustainable diamonds to complement her look. Interestingly, Fonda revealed she’s never buying new clothes again.
