Portman Impressed With Black Swan's Green Set
Eco warrior Natalie Portman was impressed with the lengths director Darren Aronofsky went to to make sure their new movie set BLACK SWAN was green.
The movie won the recent Green Seal Award from the Environmental Media Association for cutting back on waste and plastic - and Portman admits she loved following her director's green lead.
She says, "Darren is a huge environmentalist and made sure there were no water bottles anywhere on set which is a huge, huge deal because we were drinking tons of water. Everyone was given containers.
"Also at lunch, instead of having Styrofoam, which most movie sets have, for your containers you can have eco-containers. It's good because it's a daily thing where hundreds of people are just wasting stuff that's poisonous."
Aronofsky tells WENN, "Our start gift was a Clean Canteen with our logo on it. Every crew member and cast member got one. Films are incredibly wasteful, so you just try to do your best."
