Ecorazzi co-founder, Rebecca Carter, will be honored at Sustainatopia’s opening night party for young social entrepreneurs on April 19. Sustainatopia 2012 honors Miami Heros for outstanding work within social, financial and environmental sustainability.
Carter’s track record for good, sustainable living has been documented on the web prior to Ecorazzi’s inception. She is the founder of greenerMiami.com and a freelance eco-consultant. In 2006, she joined Michael d’Estries in creating Ecorazzi –one of the most influential green websites, according to Mother Nature Network.
She was named Best Environmentalist by the Miami News Times in 2008 and Glamour magazine named her as one of 70 eco-achievers in April 2009. EarthFirst.com even nominated her as one of the “Hottest Girls in Green.” She has made quite a name for herself in the sustainable world through hard work, dedication and a prominent web presence.
Sustainatopia 2012 will take place April 19- 25 with a focus on celebrating and embracing profound opportunities for positive change in the world. The event will host several conferences including The Impact Conference, Sustainable Haiti, Impact & Our Oceans, and Emprendimiento Latam.
The party celebrating young social entrepreneurs on Earth Day will benefit several organizations including NET Impact, an international non-profit with a mission to empower individuals to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world; Young Women Social Entrepreneurs, a national organization that serves women with a socially conscious agenda; and USGBC South Florida Chapter, a non-profit run entirely by volunteers who do everything from educating children about green principals to speaking with CEOs about sustainability.
