EcoStiletto was holding its two-year anniversary party at Rolling Greens Nursery we were thrilled. We fell in love with the place the first time we were there, so we were happy for an excuse to return. The green event also served to raise awareness on how to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Yes, it’s possible to be eco-friendly and fashionable. Guests were asked to donate a work-ready purse to Dress for Success, in order to support their new L.A. headquarters, and in return they were treated to mini eco-makeovers courtesy of Jane Iredale Cosmetics and eyebrow threading by Marco Ochoa of Eco Brow.
Green-minded fashionistas and celebrities mixed and mingled on this warm summer night and filled their recyclable gift bag with eco-friendly giveaways from Tom’s of Maine, Zhena’s Fair Trade Gypsy Tea, and Green Works Natural Cleaners. Waterpik was also on site to demonstrate how much water you’d save by using one of their water-saving showerheads. With DWP hiking up their prices it’s a good time to convert.
LAcarGUY.com gave guests an up close view of the 2010 Audi A3 TDi, which was dubbed “Green Car of the Year”. Guests got to relax on and enter a raffle to win the $4,000 sustainable Edge bed by Environmental Furniture, which was crafted from recycled materials. For 4 g’s that bed better outlive me. I’m just saying.
Reel Green Media. The dress, which has been dubbed “Let Them Recycle” was made from discarded materials typically found in the costume department, was designed to draw attention to the amount of waste created by the entertainment industry. The goal of the Sustainable Sirens Campaign is to encourage television, film, and theatre to recycle and go green.
Organic cocktails were compliments of O.N.E. Natural Experience and 360 Organic Vodka. Chef Makini Howell, of Seattle’s Plum Bistro, served vegan friendly appetizers from WorldFare Bustaurant. Organic wine (Yellow + Blue) and organic beer (Eel River Brewing Co.) were also on hand and for desert we nibbled on Nicobella Vegan Organic Dark Truffles…mmmmm… healthy, yet sinfully delicious!
Rachel Sarnoff (founder of EcoStiletto) did a great job organizing this informative and fun event. I also have to commend the fashionistas for their generous contributions to Dress for Success. By the end of the night the collection bins were overflowing with purses. YAY!
