Electric Owl Studios, the greenest studio on earth, opened their doors to the Broadway Green Alliance and the stars of Wicked, Olivia Valli (Elphaba) and Celia Hottenstein (Glinda), to highlight the importance of creating sustainable production practices. Valli and Hottenstein toured the Electric Owl Studios campus and along the way learned tips on ways fans can implement green practices into their everyday lives. Following the tour, they performed a special rendition of “For Good” from Wicked to encourage fans to join the fight to change the planet for good. 

Green tips shared in the video include:

-Increasing local biodiversity by planting native plants
