Green Carpet Gala makes an impact

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Last week, Chicago’s greenest and most eco-curious citizens came together for the Green Carpet Gala at District Bar. With regular gatherings like Green Drinks and events at Uncommon Ground, Chicago is no stranger to environmental networking. But this landmark event also served as a preview of and fundraiser for Carbon Day (September 15), a day set aside to raise awareness about easy, simple ways to reduce environmental impact in everyday life.

Gala guests sipped organic Rain vodka, munched on ratatouille skewers, networked with other like-minded individuals and shopped wares from local eco companies I Pledge Eco apparel and Koru Street accessories. Most notably, there were two screenings of the yet-to-be-released "No Impact Man" documentary and a funky electric and solar vehicle to check out. You can expect all this and more at next month's Carbon Day Festival in Lincoln Park.
