Emmy Goes Eco at the EcoLuxe Lounge

Canine CaviarThe Emmy’s have come and gone, the red carpet along with the event. But the green carpet rolls on thanks to the green-friendly, charitable efforts of the EcoLuxe Lounge. It was a star studded Stardust Penthouse Sunday August 24th at the Beverly Hilton, where producer Debbie Durkin once again combined luxury with green living. The EcoLuxe Lounge honored the 66th Emmy Awards nominees and presenters, served up a look at some awesome and eco-friendly products for people and pets, and also raised both funds and awareness for Los Angeles Big Brothers/Big Sisters. The organization’s individual mentorship program opens the door to personal relationships that improve children’s lives for the better.

Delicious appetizers from the hotel’s hip Circa 55 were passed out, great tunes were spun, and White Lotus Productions created a beautiful outdoor deck space for celebrating when the non-stop awesome gifting was done.

As always, the point of these gatherings is to introduce new, exciting, and eco-aware brands while honoring the entertainment community, and supporting a worthy charity. A triple threat of LA fun and purpose. The stars showed up, including Orange Is The New Black stars Alysia Reiner and Madeline Brewer, Elliot Gould, most recently a part of Ray Donovan, Patrick Gallagher (Night at the Museum), and Scott Bailey (The Bay), among others.

People and pets were feted with cool products such as O.P.I. nail polish, sleek Serengeti sunglasses, and super tasty VyPassetti Cake Pops. FreshBody.com products including Fresh Balls and Fresh Feet, and all natural cosmetic sponges from JAndre were joined by KellyAnn Novak’s purely amazing Youth Eternal 100% natural skin care oil. A mix of 22 essential oils in a formula that Ms. Novak took years to perfect, cell regenerating virgin coconut, apricot kernel, carrot seed, rose hip, lemon oil, myrrh, rosemary, lavender, and other oils form an alternative to invasive chemical based anti-aging treatments.

Luxurious eco-friendly items went beyond the skin, with workout posture gear from AlignMed, and Mark Roscoe’s amazing pure silk men’s ties – a rainbow of beauty that will help any man “tie one on.” Mark Roscoe’s designer gowns were on display for the ladies, too. That Mark Roscoe tie would look amazing with the men’s designer shirts available from Armani Wells, a Studio City shop with fashion forward men’s wear for both formal and casual occasions. Based in Orange County, the traveling hair and make-up pros behind OC Hair and Make Up offered their services and a glamorous nail pack.

Feline and canine friends weren’t forgotten either. Baylee Nasco offered delightful, soft, faux-fur patterned pet blankets. Canine Caviar served up probiotic, organic food both wet and dry for Fluffy and Fido with its stellar canine and feline caviar pet meals. They’ll be licking their lips over flavors like organic chicken, sweet potato, and spinach. And The Rein Coat’s dog-calming breathable coat was the fashion accessory that also has emotional health benefits for pups of all sizes.

From a stunning skyline view of LA to the perfect, eco-friendly gifting, the EcoLuxe Lounge brought out people, pets – yes, Ms. Durkins own precious pup made an appearance along with other leashed ones – and the best in charitable giving. Another award winning scene played out in Beverly Hills.
