Mayor of London releases “Green Theatre” report

Boris Johnson, London’s mayor since May, has just released a comprehensive report on the greening of London theater entitled “Green Theatre: Taking Action on Climate Change.”

Once I have more time to go over the report, I will write more about it. For now, you can see a good news piece on it here and download the full report here.

    It is all of our responsibility in the Theatre to not add to the toxic waste in the environment. As designers, educators and technicians we all have a choice of products that we can use and should try to substitute greener products whenever possible when we are creating pieces for the theatre. What we put down the drain can not always be removed from the waste water at your local water treatment plant (it’s a good idea to call them if you aren’t sure about disposal) we should read Material Safety Data Sheets for all products that we use and make sure that we give that information to all students or employees that are using those products. There are enough damaging chemicals in detergents, cosmetics and household products let’s try to all reduce to toxic build up when ever we can. Thanks.

what’s in a color?

"It should be about different kinds of symbols than the color green—wind farms, solar, renewable-energy laboratories, those things that are symbolic of the new energy economy. People think that we overuse the concept of green, and it could become trite in its expression.”
“This idea about green in a lot of people’s minds still conjures up this notion of a fringe or something that’s out-there. It doesn’t inspire this notion of a new America. It just seems more substantive than a color.” - Colorado governor Bill Ritter, Jr. in The New Yorker
