Kicking off the biggest week in entertainment, Global Green USA hosted its can’t miss pre-Oscar bash on Wednesday, February 26 at the Avalon Hollywood. Marking the organization’s 20th Anniversary, the zero-waste party brought together Hollywood’s elite activists and eco-conscious celebrities to enjoy a night of plant-based dining, rare performances and an exclusive auction, all to raise funds and awareness for Global Green USA’s ongoing initiatives.

Over 1,000 guests, including celebrities, eco-luminaries, and entertainment press from around the world, gathered to celebrate green solutions and hear the latest green messages from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Earth Friendly Products, the largest green cleaning products manufacturer in the world, was represented  by Vice President Kelly Vlahakis-Hanks and Director of Special Events Vivian Panou, who walked the Green carpet together with fellow Greek-American actor Billy Zane.

The evening  featured a live performance by Award-winning musician and environmentalist Moby and a DJ Set by The Crystal Method.

“After attending multiple Global Green events over the years and supporting them in their mission, it’s really nice to be able to play their legendary pre-Oscar party,” Moby said on the green carpet.

To achieve Global Green’s goal of making this a zero-waste event, the organization’s own Coalition for Resource Recovery program, in collaboration with CoRR member Athens Services and the staff of Avalon Hollywood, worked to ensure that at least 90 percent of all refuse, including food scraps and packaging, is diverted from landfill through three key measures: reusing, recycling, and composting.

The event also also featured the all-new 2014 Cadillac ELR plug-in electric vehicle, which was on display in the Cadillac ELR Lounge and on the green carpet.
