Harrelson insists zombie film set is all green
Eco-warrior Woody Harrelson turned the set of his new movie Zombieland into a green working environment, insisting he'd only work on the film if director Ruben Fleischer promised to cut down on waste and save energy.
The actor suggested plastic cutlery should be banned from the set and all plates, cups and glasses be biodegradable. And water bottles were an absolute no-no.
Fleischer tells WENN, "One of the requirements for him doing the film was that we have a green set as much as possible. All the silverware was metal that could be washed and reused, as opposed to just thrown away.
"If we did use plates or cups or glasses it was all biodegradable. We didn't use plastic. Instead of having plastic water bottles, which he sees as a huge environmental threat, we had big coolers and everybody on the set got their own jug that they could refill."
Harrelson also had a series of dietary requirements: "He eats raw food and vegan items, so he had a chef making delicious things for him every day that he shared with me and the rest of the cast that was healthy and delicious.
"He practices what he preaches and made us all aware. I'm far healthier since knowing him. He's very persuasive."
