snipshot_bxblc2ehpsi.jpgUnlike this year’s Oscars, the Global Green Pre-Oscar party definitely had gift bags (it’s a great way to offset the cost through sponsorship) and everyone involved got one. They’re loaded with some great green swag; but we’re usually not given a wide open view of the goods until someone throws the lot up on Ebay.

So, with a starting bid of $299 (which, considering what you get, is a deal) let’s take a look at some of this year’s offerings. Off the get-go, you can tell that this is a Hollywood gift bag because there are five boxes of all-natural “sleep the pounds away” diet pills. Someone keep these away from Nicole Richie. There’s also some organic makeup products, coffee, massive amounts of chocolate, a coin purse from Ecoist, several gift-certificates to the BWell Clinic in LA and assorted green-issue DVDs and more beauty products. Gents, there’s even some organic shaving cream thrown in as well.

Anyways, for the full list, hit the auction and see if you’re interested in walking away with these goods. It will be interesting to see just how high the bids go as the days drag on. Thing were getting massively ridiculous with last year’s Oscar swag (diamond-encrusted phones?) and it’s nice to see a more ‘organic’ down to Earth alternative start to make the rounds.
