Tommy Lee, Ludacris, Adrian Grenier, and a bevy of other celebs, turned out in style this week to launch “Planet Green,” the first and only 24-hour eco-friendly lifestyle and entertainment television network, courtesy of Discovery Communications. The star-studded event, which also raised money for the reforestation of historic Griffith Park in Los Angeles, recently destroyed by wildfires, commenced with a tree planting by Los Angeles Mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, Tommy Lee, and Ludicris.
The green carpet was brimming with eco-conscious celebs, all bustling about the new network, and their various shows. Adrian Grenier showed up with his Alter Eco team, Angela Lindvall, Boise Thomas, and Darren Moore. “These are people I’ve met over the years, who are all living responsibly and want to share their ideas on how to live more responsibly but in a fun excited way, in a more connected way, and that’s what we’re all doing here together.”
Tommy Lee was all aglow about his show with Ludacris, Battleground Earth, and their journey across the country to educate people on how to save the planet. Things to watch out for during their August 3rd launch include seeing them make fuel out of cow poop! Sexy!
Maria Menounos, of Access Hollywood was fabulous in eco-fashion and brimming with enthusiasm about her new show, Green Hollywood. It’s the first show to kick off the new network and is a look at Hollywood and celebrity in the green movement.
Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister who rocked out in a fantastic recycled coat by “Forgotten Saints,” goes to great lengths to neutralize his carbon footprint, whilst Keenan Ivory Wayans is getting ready to build an LEED certified house from scratch in an effort to show us how to have all that you need whilst still being healthy and mindful of the planet.
Other celeb attendees included Wasted team, Annabel Gurwitch and Holter Graham who are on a mission to reduce peoples’ carbon footprint by 20% and save them money, and Battleground Earth’s Diggidy Dave who was extolling the virtues of traveling the country by bus with Tommy Lee, in an effort to bring awareness to the plight of the planet.
Further love was given by Tom Green, Josie Maran, Summer Rayne Oakes, Olesya Rulin of High School Musical fame, “Take Home Chef’s” Curtis Stone, and the rock band, Vegan Vixens, who were thrilled to have decked out both Tommy Lee and Ludicris with fab faux fur jackets.
The revelry ended with a mind-blowing rock concert under the stars, and the general consensus that it’s good to be green!
