The 4th annual benefit gala was held in San Francisco and included organic cocktails and eco-chic fashion, and focused on green solutions to the world’s problems.
“The more I learn about how far we have come, the more I am inspired and grateful to be a part of [Global Green] to help find solutions and to inspire other people,” said Bosworth.
Global Green USA – whose supporters include Leonardo DiCaprio, Orlando Bloom, and Charlize Theron – has a plethora of environmental aims, such as creating green buildings and cities, eliminating weapons of mass destruction that threaten lives and the environment, and providing clean, safe drinking water for the 2.4 billion people who lack access to clean water.
“There’s a lot of what people call ‘green washing.’ A lot of people get on a bandwagon because it profits them,” said Zuniga. “You can go to Global Green’s shop in Santa Monica and see how you can green your own home. They get stuff done and that’s so important right now.”
Entertainment during the evening was provided by Yamin, who was placed third in the fifth series of American Idol.
“I’ve been more socially conscious since I’ve been in the business,” said the 30-year-old singer. “I have a better platform to do things like this. I try to do everything I can to contribute to this movement.”
