Actor Joaquin Phoenix is making good on his recent promise to be more mindful of the environment.

The "Joker" star, who won the Golden Globe for best actor in a dramatic film on Sunday night, will wear one tuxedo throughout awards season, according to designer Stella McCartney.

McCartney tweeted that she is "proud to join forces" with the actor for the pursuit.

"This man is a winner… wearing custom Stella because he chooses to make choices for the future of the planet," she wrote. "He has also chosen to wear this same Tux for the entire award season to reduce waste."

He then pleaded with his fellow actors to do what they could to limit their carbon footprints.

"It's great to vote, but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves and make changes and sacrifices in our own lives, and I hope that we can do that," he said during his acceptance speech. "We don't have to take private jets to Palm Springs for the awards sometimes or back. Please. And I'll try to do better and I hope you will too."
