Encounters GREEN, GREEN EVERYWHERE! Fertile Earth Foundation’s Water, Water Everywhere… event was more than a success, it was the beginning of an eco-movement. Andre Balazs himself was grateful for the event’s green mission as well as for the 450+ guest turnout at his property, the exquisite boutique Raleigh Hotel. Eco-chic designers Meadow and Ecoist put on an impressive fashion show. Daniell Washington, The Ambassador of the Sea, introduced her “crew” of five eager and well-educated children to the crowd, explaining the importance of the ocean. Guests were able to sip on eco-friendly cocktails, courtesy of VeeV while watching the internationally awarded film, One Water. It’s easy being green! 1. Founder’s Tiana Kai Madera & Lanette Sobel 2.
