Red Carpet or Green Carpet!

Walking the Green Carpet

Unless your computer has an incredibly advanced filter for the plethora of award-mania, you most likely know that the Oscars are this Sunday. Following on the success of the Golden Green party held in conjunction with the Golden Globes, the Global Green pre-Oscar party was held last night.

As such movies as Blood Diamond and An Inconvenient Truth bring awareness through film, more and more stars are using their popularity to bring light to causes dear to their heart. While sincerity sometimes feels a bit transparent with some causes, green and fair trade movements allow actors to show, not tell, us how committed they are.

Orlando Bloom has converted his home with “solar panels on the roof, energy efficient light bulbs” while also bringing awareness to easier things everyone can do such as “unplugging their phone chargers and turning off the TV.”

Global Green isn’t stopping with this party, they’re taking the green to the Oscars via hybrid vehicles for a glamorous entrance for the stars, with an eco-footprint more inline with their dainty heels.

Now we just need to get those guys in some fair trade & organic gowns!

UPDATE: An Inconvenient Truth Won!
