From the lights to the costumes to the glittery set pieces, Broadway may not seem like the most sustainable industry to the naked eye. However, go backstage, and you'll see that there's actually so much work being done on the Great White Way to make the industry green. Most of that is thanks to the Broadway Green Alliance. To learn more about being green in the Broadway community (and no, we're not talking about Wicked), Green Matters spoke with two Broadway actors who just happen to be official Broadway Green Alliance Green Captains.

The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA), which was founded in 2008, is an initiative across New York City's Broadway community that provides resources for Broadway shows (as well as off-Broadway shows, touring companies, and a slew of other theatres) to be more eco-friendly. The BGA is an ad hoc committee of the Broadway League, and an affiliate program of the charity Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
