It’s been an award-winning couple days for Adrian Grenier. Not only has the former Vinny Chase partnered with Ford and their electric vehicle program, but he’s also just launched a new sustainable wine label called “Stomping Ground”. On top of that, the 35-year-old picked up awards recently from both Global Green USA and Opportunity Green.

The later went down late last week out in Los Angeles where Grenier was honored along with SHFT.com business partner Peter Glatzer and actor Don Cheadle at the Fifth Annual Opportunity Green “Eco Maverick” Awards. The awards honor those with “exemplary service and commitment to environmental sustainability as well as human rights.”

Last night, Global Green USA threw Grenier an “Entertainment and Design Award” at their 12th annual Sustainable Design Awards in NYC. Like Opp Green, Grenier’s efforts with SHFT.com and promotion of environmental efforts through traditional and social media earned him the honor.

And I have to say that it’s been a long time coming for the “Entourage” star to get some recognition. We’ve been spotlighting his work in the green scene for years now – everything from his sustainable, solar-powered pad in Brooklyn to his green-themed television series. He’s one of the few celebs with a genuine passion for sustainability – as well as being a capable speaker and ambassador for any org looking for a famous face to represent.

So congrats Adrian – and thanks for pushing these issues ever-forward.
