The Eco Emmys Event – Empowering Women and Raising Awareness Hollywood Style

Eco Emmys EventGuests attending Producer Debbie Durkin’s 7th Annual Eco Emmys “Empowering Women” event September 20 and 21st were in for ecologically friendly treats and raised eco-awareness, both presented with Hollywood style and glamor. Held at Hancock Park’s beautiful Pickford Mansion, luxury lifestyle products and eco-sustainability went hand in hand to honor Women in the Arts and the 2013 Emmy Award Nominees and Presenters.

LA’s blue skies and sunshine, the wide green lawn, and elegant home were the perfect backdrop to this pre-Emmys Party which along with live music, excellent tequila shots, and some super cool and ecologically sound designer products, helped to raise awareness and funds for both The Lucy Pet Foundation and WOW Voices -With Our Words, Inc, a youth development nonprofit from Stockton, California, working to inspire literacy and artistry.

Tasty Treats
Coco Libre Organic Coconut water and Maya Tequila offered thirst quenchers to attendees. Maya’s collection of tequilas included Maya Extra Anejo, aged a minimum of 42 months for a coppery look and a smooth taste. Attendees could also try margaritas. with a splash of this delightful drink were available too. And Coco Libre’s beverage came in a variety of refreshing and hydrating fruit flavors including a much coveted pineapple. Burgers from Fresh & Meaty Burgers were offset by super delicious vegan ice cream from Organic Oasis – who also had avocado and coconut bowls available for munching. Justin’s Organic Peanut Butter Cups were a delicious way to indulge the ultimate sweet tooth.

Let the Gifting Begin
Deborah Gaspar Jewelry offered amazingly fresh designs of handcrafted jewelry made with natural mother of pearl and stones including a darker-than-average turquoise, pearls, citrine, sterling silver, and mixed metals. Light to wear and eye catching on the wrist, neck, and ear, her Dallas-based decoratives were fresh and stunning.

Equally stunning were Marjorie’s Bazaar shoes. Men’s and women’s handmade leather shoes and sandals in designs gleaned from all around the world. Founder Marjorie traveled extensively as an international model, and has taken her knowledge of global fashion to a grand extreme: the coolest and most comfortable shoes anywhere available in one place. The most coveted look were the gladiator type sandals in butter soft leather.

And there was plenty more – gorgeous high end clothes from the MK Marisa Kenson Collections. Marisa’s cutting edge chic beltless dress designs are already appearing on Hollywood celebs.

Travelers’ Choice Travelware gifted sleek duffels with easy-roll wheels, and hot pink make up cases, small suitcases, and larger styles crafted with eco-friendly materials. Pets did not get shorted either, with Canine Caviar’s grain-free, alkaline-based pet food and treats, DROOL dog walking and care, and charitable beneficiary, The Lucy Foundation, whose mobile spay and neuter clinics are a brilliant solution to local, low-cost pet health, and along with their pet adoption program can help reduce pet overpopulation and find homes for homeless pets.

Beneath the couture, celebrities and guests could work on their body image with Iobella USA – Fitness, a body shaping spa offering intro sessions; Absolute Vital Care Bodyworks offered gift certificates for awesome neck massages, as well as a chance to win their complete massage and relaxation package.

While live musical performances spilled out over the grounds, celebs including writer/director Shane Black, Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte, producer/director Penny Marshall, and Sharknado’s imperiled Cassie Scerbo among others strolled and noshed.

Proving that eco-friendly can indeed mean eco-luxury, this fun event helped raise awareness of great, sustainable products, and provided support for The Lucy Foundation and WOW Voices.
