Project Title

A Greener Disney

Author Information

Cidalia Pina


Disney brings nature and environmental issues to the forefront with its non-confrontational approach to programming meant for children. This opportunity raises awareness and is relevant to growing environmental concerns. However this awareness is just a cursory start, there is an imbalance in their message and effort with that of their carbon footprint. The important eco-messages that Disney presents are buried in fantasy and unrealistic plots. As an entertainment giant with the world held magically captive, Disney can do more, both in filmmaking and as a corporation, to facilitate a greener planet.
