On Thursday October 29 at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, Global Green USA hosted an event to celebrate the launch of award-winning photographer Sebastian Copeland’s new book Arctica: The Vanishing North. The book is a stunning visual testament to one of the most endangered places on Earth by one of the world’s leading photographers.
During the ceremony, Global Green USA and Four Seasons announced their new partnership as Global Green’s first recognized eco-impact hotel in Los Angeles for their efforts to increase their environmental sustainability.
Environmentally conscience celebrities took time out to join in the festivities, including Ed Begley Jr., Orlando Bloom, Veronica Ferres, Peter Mensah, Mark Steines and Billy Zane.
