Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Brings Big Laughs and a Smaller Carbon Footprint
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping premieres in theaters today, June 3! Headlined by musical comedy trio The Lonely Island, the film is not only hilarious, but its cast and crew members were conscious of their environmental impact. This NBCUniversal comedy was filmed in Los Angeles, and earned a 2015 EMA Green Seal award for such sustainable production practices as:
- Fuel: Eliminated single room trailers and replaced tractor trailers with less fuel-intensive 10-ton trucks.
- Electricity: Used B20 biodiesel in generators at the Long Beach Convention Center and reduced generators by tying into the electric grid while shooting the concert scenes at The Forum.
- Construction: Built sets with FSC-certified plywood and donated many sets for reuse.
- Food: Recycled on set, composted food waste, and donated excess food to local organizations throughout the Los Angeles area for a total of nearly 1,700 meals.
