Public figures and celebrities really have the power to influence change
Ossining, NY (PRWEB) September 7, 2007
To celebrate the 59th annual Emmy Awards on September 16, Hearts on Fire Diamonds and the Environmental Media Association is hosting the ultra-exclusive "GREEN WITH ENVI" eco-chic celebrity gift lounge, and has selected ECOBAGS® (http://www.ecobags.com), as the official bag of the suite. ECOBAGS is the leader in functional, fashionable, environmentally-friendly cloth bags.
Celebrity attendees and Hollywood VIPs will receive a sleek black organic ECOBAG tote emblazoned with the line, "Nothing On Me is Plastic," and filled with products from some of the world's finest purveyors. Inside the suite, attendees can speak with Sharon Rowe, founder and president of Eco-Bags Products, Inc., and gain tips on how to reduce, reuse and recycle. They can also view the full product line, and receive an ECOBAGS Classic String Bag™, great for a day on the beach, at the gym or on the set.
To fully represent eco-chic, Hearts on Fire is adorning an ECOBAG with a one carat diamond fragrant brooch valued at $5,000 and donating it to the Environmental Media Association for an upcoming silent auction.
"Public figures and celebrities really have the power to influence change," says Rowe. "Al Gore has helped the world embrace the importance of saving our planet, and now we just need to help the individual incorporate the basic tenets of environmentalism into their daily lives. Taking a reusable bag when you shop is a very easy lifestyle change that will actually be of great benefit to the planet. Opportunities like the 'GREEN WITH ENVI' suite give us the chance to put product in front of key influencers and those who can ignite change on a big level."
The "GREEN WITH ENVI" celebrity gift lounge will be held on September 10-11 from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at The Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. For photos, product and additional information, contact Ann-Marie Nieves at 914-461-4360.
ECOBAGS® are available in natural and certified organic cotton, recycled cotton and hemp/cotton blends. The entire line is available at http://www.ecobags.com and through selected retailers nationally. ECOBAGS® cloth bags and other home items and apparel are fair wage/fair labor-produced.
