Environmental media awards

Last week the Los Angeles based Environmental Media Association presented the 23rd Annual EMA Awards. The Environmental Media Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to harnessing the power of the entertainment industry and the media to educate the global public on environmental issues and motivate sustainable lifestyles. EMA runs a number of programs, including supporting gardens and greenery in urban schools across Los Angeles; a recognition program honouring progress in sustainable film making and event planning; providing advice to celebrities and entertainment professionals on thought-provoking, attention-getting ways to role model healthy, sustainable lifestyles to the general public; and a green parenting program. EMA also works with business to move the green agenda forward. Its corporate program operates under the credo “We can all change the world through shopping!” [GallonDaily is only reporting, not necessarily agreeing!]
