Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Takes Steps Towards an Eco-Friendly Future

By Rachel Green, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts
Last week, the Disneyland Resort was honored with a Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award, California’s highest environmental honor, for waste-reduction efforts. The program distinguishes organizations that are leaders in environmental stewardship and that make notable efforts to conserve California’s natural resources. Over the last 10 years, the Disneyland Resort has doubled the amount of waste diverted from landfills, and is working toward the long-term goal of achieving Zero Waste—a distinction already awarded to Circle D Corral at Disneyland park. In addition to recycling paper, cardboard, plastics and metal, Circle D Corral composts all animal waste, hand towels, laundry lint and coffee grounds from Disneyland Resort restaurants.

Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with Toy Story, it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s "Toy Story 4," an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters. John Lasseter, director of the original "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2," will direct the film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the "Toy Story" gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three Toy Story films. Writing team Rashida Jones and Will McCormack joined the project, and Pixar veteran Galyn Susman is producing. The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.
