Saturday, July 28th in East Hampton, Project Greenhouse Hamptons held their last event of the summer hosted by Adrian Grenier. The event took place at a solar home designed by architect Edvin Karl Stromsten. The night consisted of a charity poker game to which all proceeds went to Scott Harrison’s Charity: Water. The organization raises money for freshwater wells in Africa.

Other sponsors of the evening were SilverJet, the world’s first carbon neutral airline, HealthiNation, EConscious, Cuca Fresca Rum, 360 Vodka, Lexus and more.

Most of the evening Adrian was DJing and at one point stood on a table encouraging everyone to dance. OH YEAH!! As the night continued a poker game began which was $1,000 for a buy-in. Some of the evening players were Adrian Grenier, Scott Harrison, and Bradford Rand, CEO of Go Green Expo.

During the evening I had a chance to speak with Summer Rayne Oakes who is working with the Discovery Channel to do an Eco Fashion related program. Adrian mentioned he also has a project in the works with the Discovery Channel to do a new green lifestyle show. It seems to me that Discovery Channel is taking the lead on environmentally green genres. You can find out more about their upcoming all-green network, Planet Green, here.

I also spoke with Designer Alisha Levine, who has recently been in the news about her pink dress Britney Spears wore. I asked Alisha if she ever thought of creating an eco line. She said, “creating an eco-friendly clothing line isn’t something I have done before but I’m passionate about helping the environment and thought I would try a eco friendly item for Spring ’08 with proceeds from that item going towards the environment”.

    Love your site. Always nice to see celebs and the well-heeled do their part to better the world around them…but instead of the constant Hamptons parties and $1000 poker games settled around greening the world…why not band together a cadre of celebrity activists and have a clean the streets event in their own backyard? NYC is dirty…there is trash everywhere…it would be great for some boldfaced names to show regular folk that its ok, cool even, to pick-up trash and to not litter and to care about their own block. The sponsors (i.e. SilverJet) would come out for sure and maybe, just maybe it would spur some change. Raising money is great…but directly impacting the condition of a dirty street or mindset of a lazy New Yorker is even better. FYI: The sidewalk outside several Whole Foods after the “I’m not a plastic bag” fiasco was covered in litter…pathetic.
