Green Lounge Earth Day Celebration & Awards
UPDATE: The Green Lounge event was last night and we had a great time. We met a ton of really nice people, both guests and vendors.
The highlights of the night were sampling some M Cafe wraps, Large Marge Sustainables kale soup and chickpea salad (both were delicious), and also trying some yummy vegan truffles from nicobella. There were plenty of drinks on hand as well, including organic Marley Coffee, which helped keep us caffeinated through the night. I also couldn’t resist buying a couple clean burning candles from Soy Terrific, which smelled amazing.
Thanks to everyone who came out and to all the companies that were there and are doing their part to contribute to a better environment for all of us. It really was really inspiring to spend the evening with so many people that truly care about the impact that their companies and consumer choices have.
I’ll leave you with a shot of me at the table before the cupcake frenzy began. Over the course of the night we gave away about 600 mini cupcakes. Once the event started it was a race just to keep all the plates full!
I just got back from a trip home for my sister-in-law’s bridal shower and my nephew’s second birthday! It was such a great (long) weekend, and I got to spend some much needed time with family. Now that I’m back I’ll be prepping for the Green Lounge Earth Day event that takes place on Thursday. We’ll be passing out samples of some tasty C’est La V Bakeshop goodies! If you’re in the LA area and interested in coming by, it sounds like it’ll be a great night with lots of yummy food – including M Cafe – and eco-friendly products. The invite is below with a link to rsvp if you’d like to attend. Hope to see you there!
