Business leaders from all industries rallied to celebrate the city’s national green achievements collaboration on improving Houston’s Energy Star and EPA ranking and support the Houston Greeters 501c3. An Ecotoure Fashion Line by Danny Nguyen and Sally Templeton adorned with jewelry by Monique Weston of One Green Street and make-up by Steven Coleman was a crowd favorite. Vintners Own generously supplied sustainable wine, a perfect companion to scrumptious organic bites from Ruggles Green. Guests swayed to eclectic tunes selected by Lewis Grell as they received a guided facility tour of the City of Houston’s Permitting building, a modern architect’s dream come true. This building is set to receive one of the city’s highest EPA rankings for its rooftop garden, condensation filtration watering system and a ceiling created with wood debris from Hurricane Ike. Special thanks to 002 Magazine, Prop Rock, Bright Star Productions and the largest art exhibitor of the night, Charles Washington. His amazing, handcrafted doors were unforgettable.
