Gay marriage is the hot topic du jour in California — and now a new event hopes to marry the LGBT community with environmentalism. The L.A. Pride Festival, happening this weekend in West Hollywood, will feature a brand new Green With Pride “interactive eco-space” with information for sustainable living, and of course, eco-friendly products for sale.
Put together by New Avenue Marketing
and Enfluence Group
, Green With Pride has signed on nonprofits like the U.S. Green Building Council and Global Green to help educate festival attendees about living green and proud — as well as many eco-minded companies selling everything from solar power systems to eco-skincare regimens. Singer/actress Deborah Cox has
been brought in as the National Green With Pride Ambassador. She’ll perform on Sat., June 13 from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.
If you’re going to the festival, check out the Carbonfund
-offset Green With Pride area next to the main stage on June 13 and 14. Won’t be able to make it to the L.A. event? Wait a month to see Green with Pride at the San Diego Gay Pride Festival, July 18-19.
