ecobag.jpgTo celebrate the 59th annual Emmy Awards on September 16, Hearts on Fire Diamonds and the Environmental Media Association is hosting the ultra-exclusive “GREEN WITH ENVI” eco-chic celebrity gift lounge. To carry all the green goods given away, the two groups have selected ECOBAGS as the official bag of the suite. These environmentally-friendly cloth bags are emblazoned with the line, “Nothing On Me is Plastic” and will be dished out to the celebrity attendees and VIPs. Sharon Rowe, founder and president of Eco-Bags, will also be on hand to answer any questions and help people learn a little more about the 3Rs. From the release,

“’Public figures and celebrities really have the power to influence change,’ says Rowe. ‘Al Gore has helped the world embrace the importance of saving our planet, and now we just need to help the individual incorporate the basic tenets of environmentalism into their daily lives. Taking a reusable bag when you shop is a very easy lifestyle change that will actually be of great benefit to the planet. Opportunities like the ‘GREEN WITH ENVI’ suite give us the chance to put product in front of key influencers and those who can ignite change on a big level.'”

For their part Hearts On Fire Diamonds will be donating a $5,000 diamond brooch to EMA for an upcoming silent auction. Good developments all around for this year’s declared “green Emmys”. Hit the jump for more!
