Global Green USA Pre-Oscar Party Seeks a Cooler Planet

Global Green USA celebrated its 8th Annual Pre-Oscar party on Wednesday night at the Avalon Hollywood, raising funds and awareness for Global Green’s national initiatives to fight climate change. The star-studded event featured musical performances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Best Coast, and Portugal. The Man. “Greener Cities for a Cooler Planet” was the theme of the evening which benefited Global Green’s initiatives to promote smart solutions to climate change by creating healthy, green communities.

Global Green also unveiled their Model Carbon City Index tool, a first of its kind Web tool designed to benchmark cities efforts to reduce carbon emissions and motivate citizens to advocate for smart climate policies at the local level.

The stars strolled along a non-toxic green carpet outside the Avalon Hollywood for the fundraiser and concert by Sheryl Crow and Gavin Rossdale. Among the stellar guests joining Global Green USA’s CEO Matt Peterson were James Cromwell, Heather Graham, Dominic Monaghan, Kate Bosworth, Neil Patrick Harris, Rosie Perez, and Maria Menounos.

Everyone offered a thumbs-up about the festivities. Gavin Rossdale praised the “fantastic cause,” doing his part for green schools, though admitted his toddlers with Gwen Stefani, Kingston and Zuma, are a few years from classes.

For the second year in a row, Suzy Amis Cameron unveiled the winning green dress design as part of her Red Carpet Green Dress initiative. Filmmaker John Tickell and producer Rebecca Harrell, of the Sundance award-winning movie Fuel, playing in town, displayed the Fuel Energy Bus as part of GG’s Red Carpet/Green Cars campaign, which encourages celebrities to swap limos for fuel-efficient vehicles.

The lot was full of bio-diesel-powered black Escalades and Sub-urbans as well as the ubiquitous silver Prius hybrids.
