Wyclef Jean headlined the Inaugural Green Ball on Saturday, January 17, to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama.

The event celebrated the grass root efforts made by individuals and organizations across the US and the world whose actions improve and protect the environment.

Held at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington DC, the event attracted stars such as Hayden Panettiere, with every part of the evening’s proceedings designed to reduce the impact on the environment.

“With millions of visitors headed to Washington for President-elect Obama’s swearing in ceremony and accompanying celebrations, the impact on our environment will be substantial,” said event organizer Jenna Mack. “Our goal is to create an unforgettable evening while treading lightly on the Earth.”

The evening – hosted by Tony Richards – featured speakers such as Discovery Planet Green correspondent Summer Rayne Oakes and Greenopia founder Gay Browne.
