Shailene Woodley, Moby, Jaden Smith, Josh Fox and More Honored for Support and Involvement with the Environment
The 26th Annual Environmental Media Awards were hosted this past Saturday, October 22 from Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.
Environmentalists in different forms of media were brought together to help raise awareness for the causes they support.
Moby has been taking a strong stand for animal rights within the agriculture community. The EMAs honored him with the ‘Missions in Music’ award. Moby is a singer, songwriter and activist with a passion to help provide a voice to animal rights.
“One thing that we collectively as a nation and species could do to really address environmental concerns is stop supporting animal agriculture. We can address environmental issues just by stop subsidizing animal agriculture.” – Moby
EMA Awards 2016 Recap hosted by the Environmental Media Association
Nicole Richie hosted the event. The EMA Awards help create a bridge for environmentalists and entertainers to share similar points of view.
One of the stronger moments of the evening was a speech from Shailene Woodley on the Dakota Access Pipeline.
“Thousands of people are committed to fighting and winning a battle against corporate greed with nothing but love and compassion. Live a more compassionate life because the ripple effect of that is what is going to save our oceans, our planet, and our race.” – Shailene Woodley
Additional awards were presented to Josh Fox for best documentary film for ‘How to Let Go of The World And Love All The Things Climate Can’t Change.’ His support and drive to help support the environment is just as important as Moby’s stand for animal rights.
Each of the award categories honor hard-working individuals that create change.
Jaden Smith presented a water bottle that is made out of 82% renewable resources. The plant-based material that goes into making the bottle is an interesting element.
The Environmental Media Association was founded in 1989, and coming up next year will be their first EMA Summit.
