Thank you everyone who attended the Home Tree Celebration with James Cameron and/or helped us spread the LOVE about the event.

Earth Day became a unique lifetime experience for 5,000+ inter-city at-risk 12-17 year old teens who were bused in for a special Avatar screening, including Q&A with James Cameron and cast, and special Eco-training. All of them left inspired Eco-Warriors!

Then, the evening started with an intimate Strategic Summit with a selective group of environmentalists, film makers, media and celebrities, where everyone showed their commitment to a long-term peaceful Eco-War and Eco-Life. During this meeting James got the Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to publicly commit to Meatless Mondays. For those of you who wonder how this can affect the environment, please read the report below and feel free to do your own research:

Agriculture is responsible for an estimated 14 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases. A significant portion of these emissions come from methane, which, in terms of its contribution to global warming, is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The U.S. Food and Agriculture Organization says that agricultural methane output could increase by 60 percent by 2030 [Source: Times Online]. The world’s 1.5 billion cows and billions of other grazing animals emit dozens of polluting gases, including lots of methane. Two-thirds of all ammonia comes from cows.

Finally a Green Carpet and a private reception where we showed our support to the Amazonian indigenes who are fighting to stop the depletion of the so-called “Earth lungs”, Cameron received the first Home Tree award, Rosario Dawson showed she could easily win the Oscar for the Best DJ of the Year and all celebrities showed their friendly nature and support. An unforgettable day!

Blessings and remember to love your Planet every day of the year!!!
