The 92nd Academy Awards is reportedly focusing on a “plant-based menu” for this years ceremony to help combat climate change; conveniently ignoring the hundreds of limousines and private jets used by celebrities during Hollywood’s biggest night.
“The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Monday that it will be offering entirely plant-based menus at today’s Oscar Nominees Luncheon and then in the Dolby Theatre lobbies prior to the 92nd Academy Awards on Feb. 9,” reports Variety.

For the past seven years, the Oscars show has had a zero-carbon imprint. We continue to expand our sustainability plan with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral.”
