    Interesting to see Anna Wintour, the “Queen of fur” at a Green event. The saddest part is that even though there where major environmental sponsors it seemed completely, vain, superficial, elitist and zero impact on the real environmental issues.
    Ecouterre seemed so starstruck by the same people that ruin the planet with their high impact lifestyles…

    I don’t think calling us “starstruck” is necessarily true or fair Kavik. I think we objectively recognize and reported on the drawbacks and also the upside of a bunch of rich celebrities donating money to environmental charities at this charity event. You have to acknowledge, that for all their “high impact lifestyles”, the tastemakers and celebrities that were in attendance at this event have a very powerful influence on mainstream consumer culture, so it is positive to see this type of media elite getting behind such important environmental issues. Is it a silver bullet? No. it going to save the world? No – but it is a good step in the right direction. I’m sure the charities at this event that do very tangible good work for the environment were very happy and grateful to be have benefitted from the millions of dollars raised by this event.
