For the third year in a row, Ecorazzi will descend upon the red carpet for the 6th Annual Global Green Pre-Oscar Party this coming Thursday. The event, as usual, will be a celebrity magnet — drawing such famous names as Leonardo DiCaprio, Orlando Bloom, Penelope Cruz, Marisa Tomei, Kate Bosworth, Rosario Dawson, and others. Slated to perform are Sheryl Crow, Gavin Rossdale and BlackCowboy. This year’s bash will benefit “Green Schools” — with an emphasis on improving student health and performance, saving money, creating green jobs, and advancing smart climate solutions. Last year the nonprofit received more than $420,000 for its initiatives, such as the high-profile “Rebuilding New Orleans” green-building project.

Global Green USA President Matt Petersen recently told the site GreenRightNow that the organization “started doing this before An Inconvenient Truth came out. And we’ve worked hard to tie our efforts to real substantive projects and advocacy initiatives to change policy. The combination of substance along with reaching out to pop culture has its appeal – certainly in this town. People realize they have an obligation as people in the public eye to shine a light on the issues.”

Interested in attending? General admission starts at $125 and soars to $2,500 for patron level. Jump here to get more ticket information and details.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
