Greening Hollywood: Green With Music

Green With Music -- Grammy's

By Paige Donner
This year the Grammys showed off a distinctly green tint -- green as in eco-conscious and environmentally friendly. As you may know, award season in Hollywood offers a smorgasbord of gifting lounges for celebrities and entertainment industry-ites. Green With Music was an event held this past weekend during Grammys '08 that offered a new and distinctly Green twist on the concept of Gifting Lounges.

Green With Music, the first-ever, all-green gifting retreat held in honor of the Grammy nominees to help promote the ongoing awareness of the environment was housed at The South Collection, Los Angeles' first and only sustainably-built high-rise community. The Collection's Eleven building is currently the only LEED Gold Certified building in Los Angeles and offers eco-conscious design, greenspaces and on-site retail. The South Collection is just steps from LA Live and the Staples Center, home to the Grammys Award show, and have been created in concert to further the identity and aesthetics of the Green Renaissance promoting intelligent building sprouting up in Downtown Los Angeles.
Take a look at the video here to meet some of this year's Grammy nominated Rock'n'Rollers who use music and their lifestyle to promote healthy, eco-conscious living.
