Teen Choice Awards goes green with biodiesel

By | September 16, 2008
Teen Choice 2008 and Fox Broadcasting Co. went green with biodiesel in this year's Teen Choice awards.

Fox partnered with BidForGreen, a company providing logistical and other biodiesel services, to take the fuel for the awards show "Teen Choice 2008" to a higher blend level of biodiesel. The switch makes the fuel healthier for people and the environment, as it removes carcinogens as well as carbon and particulate matter. BidForGreen has helped source high-quality biodiesel for other television events and entertainers including Willie Nelson. The National Biodiesel Board partners with some of BidForGreen's founders on other
projects.

"We were impressed that Fox wanted to make the switch to B99," said BidForGreen President Dale Wiley. "While it's something we think everyone should do, it's obvious that Fox is committed to the serious environmental mandates they have set."

"Teen Choice 2008," held in late summer, featured the biggest names in teen culture, including Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers and David Cook. "Awards shows are big, high-stress events," Wiley said. "And to switch to a new fuel for this was a great step."

Josh Mark, executive director of special event production for Fox, added, "Fox is excited to have partnered with BidForGreen to make 'Teen Choice 2008' the first major award show powered by B99 biodiesel. By using B99 we will be able to work toward our goal of reducing our impact on the environment."
