The New Green Party
The catch-phrase for the big event: Maximum Celebration, Minimal Impact.
The draw: organic food, recyclable bottles and cups, linens/tables/glasses/chairs with a high "reusage rate". "In addition, the large windows in the main ballroom allow for the set-up of the event to take place without the use of most of the in-house lighting," the Web site explains. "The Mellon Auditorium’s contracted cleaning company uses primarily eco-friendly cleaning products and 100% of the restroom supplies are eco-friendly."
The event will take place Jan. 17 from 8 p.m. until midnight at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, 1301 Constitution Avenue NW in Washington. No details yet on entertainment, but perhaps it'll be a band with a high reusage rate.
(Correction: This post incorrectly said Al Gore was the host of this event. Gore is hosting a separate Green Ball on Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. at the National Portrait Gallery at 8th and F Streets NW.)
