Posted on 23. Apr, 2009 by in Awards, Events


The inaugural Green Dot Awards (GDA) went off last night without a hitch.  Set at the Smog Shoppe in Los Angeles, entirely powered by solar energy, the awards featured a gathering of international award recipients ready to celebrate Earth Day.

GDA recognizes businesses, entrepreneurs, designers, innovators and unique green business proposals that focus on creating progressive products, services, and business models. Basically, cheers to green pride!

Stephan McGuire, best known for his work on Leonardo di Caprio’s The 11th Hour, was presented with the GDA Visionary Award for his actions with  Coalition for a Sustainable Africa.  Also know as CSAfrica, the organization is empowering sustainable solutions for grass-roots initiatives and has launched Namibia’s first green charity – Green Awareness Africa.

Opportunity Green received the Award of Excellence in Community + Policy as an organization that has mobilized people and business to take action on environment stewardship. Karen Solomon, Co-Founder of Opportunity Green, graciously thanked the community for saying “yes” to the idea of a conference which encourages the experience of collaboration and the movement towards sustainability.
