ed_cook.jpgLiving With Ed co-stars Ed Begley Jr. and Rachelle Carson spent the weekend January 19-21, 2007 hosting Project Greenhouse at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. Project Greenhouse was an invite-only showcase of wonderful eco-friendly products and services, and included Ed and Rachelle as its honorary hosts. >

During the event, Ed and Rachelle did a huge number of press interviews with Fox, KTLA-LA, Yahoo, The Weather Channel, the Wall Street Journal, the Sundance Channel and many others. Many Hollywood celebs came by to congratulate Ed and Rachelle on the success of Living With Ed and to get green tips from the master himself! Gina Gershon, Kevin Bacon, Bradley Whitford, Sharon Lawrence, Parker Posey and others were seen hanging with the Begleys around Park City. Ed brought along his iZip Hybrid Electric Bike and power generator and let the press create their own human energy by riding the bike. Ed even charged his cell phone using it! Ed was also seen right out on Main Street heating up a kettle of water in his solar oven and serving hot tea to passers by! The temperature inside his solar cooker reached 225 degrees – even though it was only 18 degrees outside!

Ed received a Moviemaker Mentor Award from the Creative Coalition, and spoke eloquently to young actors and film makers during a panel discussion on Saturday. He sat on the panel next to Hollywood acting contemporary Alan Rosenberg, the current SAG president. Ed was also spotted at the Good Magazine party with Chris Payne, the director of “Who Killed the Electric Car?” chatting about the new Phoenix Motorcars electric SUT. Rachelle was the guest of a number of eco-friendly companies – she took a long meeting with the president of Pangea Organics, learning all about their terrific products! She also was treated to spa services by Glo and Pureology…’green’ really can be chic! Ed’s friends at TerraPass even offset some of the carbon footprint of Project Greenhouse!
