Celebrities like Nicole Richie Walk the ‘Green Carpet’ at Environmental Media Awards

Nicole Richie, Rosario Dawson and more celebrities came together to award the Simpsons and 30 Rock for promoting environmental concerns in their entertainment efforts.

The Environmental Media Awards have been presented since 1991 and launched the concept of the “green carpet”. The awards go to TV shows, movies and musicians that use their entertainment role to promote environmental concerns. The awards, which were presented this year on November 13, also promote an eco-friendly awards gala and organic food.

With environmentalism becoming the norm, the Environmental Media Awards have gone mainstream with stars like Nicole Richie, Rosario Dawson and Amy Smart (wearing an eco-friendly black gown) walking the green carpet.

Awards winners after the jump.

Environmental Award Winners include: 30 Rock for TV Comedy; Boston Legal for TV Drama; Planet in Peril won for Best Documentary; and Mobile Home Disasters for Reality Programming. In Feature Film, The Simpsons Movie lost out to Into the Wild. And in children’s programming, Handy Manny won over The Naked Brothers Band.
