Word is that Jimmy Fallon’s new late-night set is green, with features including low-VOC paint and reclaimed seats from Radio City Music Hall.

Which is cool and all. Except wouldn’t it have been greener to just … use the old set? (That said, kudos to Build It Green! for salvaging Conan’s remains.)

And P.S.: As Kate rightly points out, Jimmy’s house band, The Roots, is oh-so-green — seen most recently at last weekend’s Power Shift conference.
