Global Green USA, The 80th Annual Academy Awards & Hollywood Celebs

What do these three things have in common? More and more, these days.

Oscars 2008 marks the second year in a row that the Oscars have gone Green, thanks largely to the non-partisan NRDC's initiatives spearheaded at last year's Academy Awards. To see the Environmental Achievements of this year's 80th Annual Academy Awards, please go here.

Global Green USA, another environmental organization operating in the crossroads of celebrity and environmental activists, is the American affiliate of President Gorbachev's Green Cross International which is an organization dedicated to stopping climate change. At this year's Pre-Oscar bash held at Avalon in Hollywood, Matt Petersen, President and CEO of Global Green spoke to us about their philosophy behind galvanizing celebrity endorsements of environmental causes.
