The 11th annual pre-Oscars party held for Global Green, an environmental organization, took place at the Avalon in Hollywood this past Wednesday and was packed with supportive stars and and dripping with eco-love. The earth-friendly organization that advocates for smart and sustainable solutions to decrease global warming celebrated its 20th anniversary and raised funds for its honorable initiatives.
The guest list included Malin Akerman, Ryan Kavanaugh, Joan Rivers and Moby amongst other Hollywood elite. Michelle Branch, singer and songwriter said, “I think it’s just important to remind people, especially during Oscar week, that we do have to take care of our planet, it’s not just about who’s going to win and who’s wearing what, so it’s just a nice way to kind of focus the week.”
To top off the green festivities, an organic and plant-based meal was served and guests indulged in a sustainable glass of wine (or two). Despite all of the fun that was had munching on green cuisine and listening to Moby play live, his first and only performance of the year, the real message of the evening was one of a serious nature: climate change.
“If we continue business as usual, our coasts are going to disappear,” said Mary Luévano, interim executive director. Global warming is threatening coastal communities everywhere with extreme weather patterns and rising sea levels. You only have to turn on the television or hop onto social media to hear about the latest natural disaster. It’s wonderful to see such a powerful collaboration between Hollywood stars and an environmental organization working together to raise money for such a worthy cause.
