Joaquin Phoenix is practicing what he preached at the Golden Globes. After urging Hollywood to practice sustainability in his winning speech, the Joker star is doing his part. Phoenix will wear the same suit to every award show he attends this year.

Phoenix is partnering with designer Stella McCartney to wear the same custom tux he wore to the Golden Globes throughout this awards season. McCartney is also focused on limiting her carbon footprint by making clothes that are “beautiful and sustainable. No compromises.”

“This man is a winner…,” McCartney tweeted, “wearing custom Stella because he chooses to make choices for the future of the planet. He has also chosen to wear this same Tux for the entire award season to reduce waste. I am proud to join forces with you.”

In his speech after winning the award for Best Actor in a Drama, Phoenix called out those in Hollywood who preach about climate change but take private jets. He is also reportedly the reason the Golden Globes offered an all-vegan menu during this year’s ceremony.
