This Is Why Everyone Was Wearing Green Ribbons At The Emmys Last Night

Later in this year's Emmy Awards ceremony, Jeffrey Tambor took the stage to accept the Best Lead Actor award for his performance in "Transparent."

You've probably heard about his touching speech dedicating the win to the trans community — but Tambor made another important statement without saying a word.

He was one of many nominees — including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Louis CK and Don Cheadle — who sported green ribbons in support of climate action last night.

The ribbons, adorned with the phrase #DemandClimateAction, were distributed by the Natural Resources Defense Council to bring attention to the upcoming global conference on climate change in December.

"If you're watching the Emmy Awards tonight, you've seen some of Hollywood's biggest stars demanding climate action from world leaders by prominently wearing a green ribbon distributed by NRDC supporters," reads the NRDC website. "The green ribbon tonight (shows) support for strong climate action that will leave a better world to future generations."

We applaud these celebs for bringing some green to the red carpet and taking a stand on an issue that isn't often discussed in Hollywood.
