The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Earlier this month, Ecorazzi reported that Christie’s — the world’s leading art business — was holding a special green auction to honor the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, aptly titled, ‘A Bid to Save the Earth.’ Well, the auction was held last week, and although Ecorazzi couldn’t make it (we’re crazy nuts busy, yo!), our friends at TreeHugger.com covered the event with style and panache!

According to TreeHugger, the event, which was hosted by Susan and David Rockefeller, raised $1,387,000 to benefit four major environmental non-profits, including: Conservation InternationalOceana, Natural Resources Defense Council(NRDC) and The Central Park Conservancy. Get out of town!

Stars like Sam Waterson, Miranda Kerr, Ted Danson, Candice Bergen, Al Roker, Ann Curry, Matt Lauer and Salma Hayek were among the 600 guests who helped make the event an absolute success!

But wait! Just because you missed out doesn’t mean you have to freak out! If you’d still like to bid on some cool celeb experiences, simply visit ‘A Bid to Save the Earth’s’ silent auction page before May 6. You can also pledge a $10.00 donation by texting “gogreen” to phone number 20222.

To get full-coverage access to the event, including a ton of great videos, stop by TreeHugger.com!

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
