Go Green On New Year's Eve

I must confess I never thought of saving earth by going to a club before. I first heard of the Greenhouse club because it was a gorgeous, fancy place. Then I realised how special this space is. It is nothing but he first eco-friendly, LEED* registered nightclub in New York designed by Nightlife impresario Jon B.

Check out these amazing lights ! This is something between Alice in Wonderland and Saturday Night Fever. Every thing is recycled and can be recycled as you can see.

  • Everything from building materials and garbage disposal, energy and water usage are regulated and reduced.
  • Walls and floors are made of sustainable bamboo.
  • LED light bulbs are used which use 1/13th of the energy of a regular light bulb.
  • Staff uniforms are made in Africa by Edun, a clothing company owned by Bono and his wife, Alison Hewson.
  • Electricity for the sound system and the rest of the club is 100% wind-powered.

Nicole Richie and Britney Spears showed off their legs in sparkle minis at past New Year's Eve parties.

Richie went the safe route though and went with some leggings. Good thing too. After a few drinks you don't want a slip up with the paparazzi. Right, Britney?

What will the celebrity mom's be wearing to ring in 2011 this time? For their sake, hopefully something a little bit warmer. The celebration is in the middle of winter after all.
