Seems like the giftless-theme started by the 2007 Oscars has failed to catch on at other awards galas. Alas, if you can’t avoid handing things out, at least you can make them as environmentally-friendly as possible.

So was the case with the gift bags handed out at The GRAMMY Foundation’s Starry Night Benefit on July 28th. The gala honored 27-time GRAMMY winner Quincy Jones in recognition of a lifetime of commitment and dedication to social, cultural, economic and educational issues spanning the globe. Quincy, along with celebrity attendees like David Foster, Patti Austin, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Gloria Estefan, James Ingram, Patti LaBelle, John Legend, Kanye West, and Nancy Wilson, all received green gift bags prepared by Madison & Mullholland. From the release,

“For the “Green”: Col de Mar; Gecko Traders; Guylian Belgian Chocolates; Luggage Express gift certificates; Empire/CLS Green car service; Motherboard Gifts’ recycled clock; baby clothing from My Conservation Baby; Rodale Press’ The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook; Seaside Naturals; Simple® bag and shoes; Soy Basics candle; Suds in a Bucket; Terra Plana footwear and LaCoupe orgnx hair products.”

Adding hyperlinks to those products was worth it. Wow! I encourage you to click on some of those. We will definitely be adding a selection to our Christmas recommendations. For some “Aww, cute” moments, check out the My Conservation Baby site.
