As with most of the events we gush about, this one is chock full of earth-friendly vibes — from the organic raw food bar, tea bar, and “Green” carpet arrivals to the eco-friendly products and services. The venue itself is also sustainable — with organizers choosing to hold the lounge in LA’s only all-green development, The South Collection. Here’s a bit from the release,

“Green with Music,” is the All-Green Luxury Gifting Retreat for Music’s stars. Celebrated A-Listers will tour our Green Retreat, enjoying world-class Ayurvedic Spa services, a Meditation/ Relaxation Lounge, organic food bar, soothing music, divine green design and the artwork of celebrated Grammy artist Robert Sturman. A portion of the proceeds from Green with Music will benefit MusiCares, the Recording Academy’s charity for musicians in need. We are also benefiting Make it Right 9, Brad Pitt’s charity dedicated to creating affordable green housing in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans.

We love showcasing green lounges like this one because we feel it provides a perfect opportunity for sustainable companies to get their products into the hands of those that might provide a boost in terms of marketing. It also shows earth-friendly can mean luxury — something that hasn’t necessarily come across in past years.
