Eco-friendly gift bags the hot accessory this year

Celebrities Participating in Global Green USA’s Red Carpet/Green Cars Campaign Receive Green Gift Bags

Stars arriving at the Oscars in eco-friendly cars had a green surprise in their trunk — eco-friendly gift bags. Participants in the 5th Annual Global Green USA Red Carpet/Green Cars Campaign received the gift bags, which were loaded with green products that consumers can use in their own homes. The earth-conscious gift bag and celebrities carried the important message that you can integrate smart solutions to global warming pollution into every phase of your life.

As part of Global Green USA’s Red Carpet/Green Cars Campaign, eco-friendly gift bags were personally delivered into the arms of nominees and attendees chauffeured in green cars to the 79th Annual Academy Awards. Like no other gift bag, these proved that smart solutions to reduce global warming pollution don’t end at car choice.

The gift bag goodies assembled by GBK events and going in eco-friendly vehicles include: Starbucks Organic Coffee and reusable Mugs, Ethos Water, Desert Essence Shampoo Products, Napapijri clothing, Yahoo! T-shirts, purses from HER Designs, a five-night stay at El Dorado Spa Resorts and Azul Hotels, a year’s supply of dog treats from Dogswell, organic jeans from Delforte Jeans, green clothes from Aveda, a year’s supply of Tibetan Tea, Get Clean Green Cleaning Products from Shaklee, Caniglia Skin Care products, EarthlyBody oils, chapstick and massage candles, Art of Beauty-Zoya manicures and pedicures, makeup from Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, massages and a facial from Green Bliss Eco Spa, Pure-Rest Organic Bedding Company bedding, a custom home design certificate from Robert Craymer Design, Fat Tire beer from New Belgium Brewing, a year’s supply of drinks from Coconut Water.

Participating eco-businesses contributed a monetary donation to Global Green USA to further the promotion of sustainable business practices. Gavin Keilly’s GBK events produced the beautifully assembled green gift bags and donated a portion of the proceeds from their Oscar gifting suite to Global Green USA as well.
