Who knew renewable energy can be so sexy?! More than 1,600 dignitaries, celebrity supporters, guests and EO members from around the globe were in attendance at Hef's house last Saturday. Watch the video as we catch up with VIP guests on the carpet then headed inside to find out what the buzz was all about.
Ecovations also sponsored the event & shared with us some Green features of the evening:
- You'll be dinning on Plates made out of Fallen Leaves that are compostable, instead of paper or plastic which are difficult to recycle once mixed with food waste
- Utensils are Compostable and made in a plant that runs on Hydro-electric power, instead of energy intensive plastic pieces that usually end up in landfills
- Cups are made from a bio-polymer and fully compostable, instead of plastic cups that are made out of petrochemicals, which contain OIL
- Food Waste from the Event, with the compostable items will be made into renewable energy through a gasification process, at Liberty Composting Facility
- By making all food service items compostable, we are able convert the food waste, cups, plates and utensils into RENEWABLE ENERGY without generating any landfill waste. Food in landfills accounts for 20% of the average waste stream, food waste can be a resource of nutrients in soil and bio-mass for electricity
