LA Green Lights Live Earth
Last night Los Angeles showed their support for the 24-hour concert series Live Earth to raise awareness of the climate crisis by lighting city landmarks green.
Eco-celebs Lawrence Bender, producer of An Inconvenient Truth (who had a very foxy girlfriend, Swedish jazz singer Lisa Lovbrand, on the sides), Sharon Lawrence, Daphne Zuniga, Ed Begley, Jr., and Ron & Lisa Beres of GreenNest.com joined the Los Angeles City Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Cathy Zoi of the Alliance for Climate Protection, the MillionTreesLA group, and other notable city officials and green organizations to sign the Live Earth Pledge created by Al Gore.
Villaraigosa proudly announced in English and Spanish that Los Angeles recycles more than any other metropolitan city, has maintained its water usage steady despite a population growth of over 1 million people in the last 10 years, and will move towards powering the city with renewable energy sources from 8% to 20% by 2010.
Ron Beres encouraged ecorazzi readers to be a “great catalyst change for the community.” Daphne Zuniga also chimed in with “let’s fix the major problems in our own backyard.”
