February has proven to be a busy month. Last weekend we were able to enjoy THE big game with a teeth clenching win, and this Sunday we will have the opportunity to see the biggest names in music come together to celebrate talent and cultural enrichment. We are talking about the 57th Grammy Awards hosted by The Recording Academy in Los Angeles, CA. More specifically at the Staples Center.
Established in 1957, The Recording Academy is an organization of musicians, producers, engineers and recording professionals that is dedicated to improving the cultural condition and quality of life for music and its makers. They are responsible for groundbreaking professional development, advocacy, education and human services program; and five years ago, they partnered with the NRDC to integrate ecologically intelligent practices to planning and production of the awards show.
The infographic above shows how the Academy has incorporated green initiatives to their Headquarters, however the planning and production of the awards will also see some changes. From utilizing 100 percent of renewable energy, to using online tickets and sponsoring carpools through Ride Amigos, they are doing a great job in reducing the ecological footprint that this big of an event may produce.
