The Environmental Media Association Awards took place last Saturday, October 18, at the Warner Brothers Burbank Studio. The event marked the 25th anniversary of the organization’s inception and was hosted by Marc Malkin and Arlene Santana. Dozens of eco-friendly celebrities gathered on the green carpet to show support for such an important cause, including Lance Bass, Sharon Osbourne, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frances Fisher, and Malin Akerman.
