Yesterday, May 12, Nicole Richie was spotted at the Environmental Media Association Organic Gardens Launch held at the Helen Bernstein High School in Los Angeles.
Nicole wrote about this event on her website:
Today I joined the Environmental Media Association & LA Unified School District as they launched their partnership with a groundbreaking ceremony at Helen Bernstein High School in Hollywood in support of organic gardens and greenery in schools across Los Angeles.
I’ve been a board member of the Environmental Media Association for four years now, and when I heard they were taking on this very powerful awareness program, I immediately wanted to help. The purpose of school is education, and to me, it doesn’t make sense to educate children in math, science, history, and literature, but not educate them in nutrition and their environment. This program will give me the opportunity to help mentor students in these very important subjects.
The other members of the board include Amy Smart, Maroon 5, Rosario Dawson, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Maria Menounos, Lance Bass, Maggie Q, Olivia Wilde, Anna Getty, Mathew Rhys, and more. Each of us will be adopting a school to raise awareness for the program and help students with environmental education. Here are just a few ways I think you can begin to help in your own communities:
1. Visit your local farmers market, and purchase organic produce
2. Start a small garden in your own home or school
3. Share with friends and family the importance of eating natural/pesticide free foods
4. Visit the Environmental Media Associations website to find out more about how you can contribute to a better world. www.ema-online.org
For this event Nicole chose a Kimchi Blue chiffon dress that she has worn before back in August 2008, a black jacket, Balenciaga peep-toe sandals, her vintage Chanel bag and Ray Ban 3025 aviator sunglasses.
