Green Events: The Green Innaugural Ball

On Saturday January 17th, green luxury will get a bit of the limelight at the first ever green inaugural ball. This event, held at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C., will feature sustainable choices from start to finish. The hors d'oeuvres selection and the open bar will include organic, local, vegan and vegetarian options. Decor will be minimal and sustainable, and entertainment will include a performance by musician and activist Wyclef Jean and a fashion show featuring creatively recycled couture by designer Nancy Judd. While the event itself will be as green as possible, organizers also urge attendees to do their part by using public transportation, purchasing carbon offsets, and choosing sustainable or vintage fashions. They recommend as a source of beautiful designer wear, including the Versace gown shown here. Tickets to the ball, at $500 each, are still available here.
