I’ll just say it: here at the Razz, we’re pretty massive fans of Global Green USA! A mighty force in the field, Global Green works hard to create a more sustainable planet and to honor Mother Earth each day.

On Monday, I had the chance to spend some time with the GG crew at their 10th Annual Sustainable Design Awards in New York City. The annual ceremony honors green businesses, schools, governments, and utilities for excellence in environmentally-friendly projects.

A slew of well-known faces came out to support the organization, including actors Brian Cox, Tate Donovan, Tony Plana and many more. President of Global Green Matt Petersen told us:

“Tonight is another sounding of the alarm bell about global warming telling us we all need to wake up and take action. The people we’re honoring tonight are really the leaders who are showing us the way. You know, it’s the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and one of the reason we started these awards was to recognize those who are breaking down the walls that stand between us and a sustainable future, so it’s a very poignant and exciting evening for us. ”


And exciting it was! With a slew of innovative individuals and companies being honored for their hard work, the Global Green Sustainable Design Awards proved just how many people out there are taking real action for the planet.
