Do I need to use a green background for the green screen effect?

No!  You can also use blue.  Depending on the light, you may be able to use any solid color.  It is key that you use a color that does not appear on your talent, otherwise that portion of your talent will look invisible.  Green and blue are most often used because they are distinct colors that are easy to differentiate.  Also, there are few green and blue pigments in most people's skin, meaning the talent is more likely to be distinguished by the camera.
