The Global Green Pre-Oscar Party: Greening Hollywood, One Eco Gift-Bag at a Time (and Why it Matters!)

The Global Green Oscar Pre-Party was filled with amazing people.

Hollywood isn’t exactly known for its low carbon footprint. So, when a Hollywood party is planned with the intention of showcasing and giving away amazing, green products, you know we’ll be singing the party’s praises. And that’s why we just have to crow about the annual Global Green’s Pre-Oscar Party.

Global Green USA, an environmental conservation nonprofit, was founded in 1994 by philanthropist Diane Meyer Simon. The organization is dedicated to fostering a global shift toward sustainability and aims to reconnect humanity with the environment. To help spread the green gospel to Hollywood elite, Global Green threw its annual Pre-Oscar Party on February 24. This year’s party was filled with “celebrities, eco-luminaries, environmental companies, political leadership and headline press from around the world” the site reports, all of whom gathered together in order “to celebrate sustainable solutions and hear the latest green messages from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.” The 2016 party partner was our friends over at Lux & Eco.

So, you may be wondering who exactly attend Global Green’s 13th Annual Pre-Party. Here’s the scoop straight from the source.

Celebrity attendees included “Paula Abdul, Ed O’Neil, Emily Ratajkowski, Matt Walsh, Heather McDonald, Josh Radnor, Daphne Zuniga, Justin Baldoni, Maggie Grace, and Radha Mitchell,” Global Green reports. “Charlie Puth opened the show before headliner Stevie Wonder came on stage, where he was joined by his children who surprised Wonder with the Global Green Hero Award for being an environmental leader. After a brief speechless moment Wonder gathered his thoughts and urged his children to ‘encourage the young people of your generation to value the planet everywhere they go.’”

Obviously, the party was a total blast, but it is the event’s gift bag that made us really swoon.

While none of us got to go, we wanted to highlight the conservation-minded brands that were featured in the event’s signature gift bag. So, get your “click and follow” finger ready — you’re going to want to revisit all these brands — and more — in the future.
