Green for the Academy Awards

While there's no denying their influence on popular culture and our collective conscience, Celebrities jet set lifestyles, big houses, and extravegant habits can rack up a pretty hefty carbon footprint- and we don't want to be planting trees to correct their irresponsible behaviors.  Well, thanks to non-profit organizations like Global Green USA, they bring celebrities together for events that benefit the planet, hopefully reducing the "celebrity style" carbon footprint.

With the 83rd Annual Academy Awards just four days away, tonight Global Green USA is hosting their 8th Annual Pre-Oscar Party, at Avalon in Hollywood.  Should be an exciting event as Hollywood's greenest celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Penelope Cruz, and Orlando Bloom, walk the carpet in their organic couture from designers like Stella McCartney and Edun, make their way inside to the VIP area filled with gift bags made up of eco-products and organic goods,  eat delectible organic hours d'oeuvres, and sip organic concoctions all night long, while listning to performances by Black Motorcycle Club and celeb DJ's spinning the night away.  And for a mere $55 per ticket, they have made it accessible for anyone who wants to get involved...I like to call it being "On The Green Scene"! 

Global Green is a non-profit organization that strives to fight global climate change by creating healthy homes, schools and communities.  This organization has their hands in many projects in the US, including helping to rebuild New Orleans, Haiti, and local schools and communities while educating them about being more sustainable.

Kudos to Global Green for making such an event possible, 8 years in a row!  Check out their website www.GlobalGreen.org to find out more information about becoming a member, events, and communities they are making greener ones.
