Nearly a week has passed since the global population celebrated Earth Day. One of our favorite holidays here at Estate Weddings and Events, we can’t help but be overjoyed with the mass amount of love this great planet of ours has been getting! Over the last year, the Earth Day Network pledged to register one million acts of environmental deeds, organizations or groups dedicated to helping our planet. Surpassing their goals and now projecting one BILLION by 2012, we’re finding that global companies are not the only ones bitten by the Eco-Bug. A very green and inspirational trend is beginning to sweep the wedding planning industry. Estate Weddings and Events is no stranger to “greening” any event, and are more than happy to do so! We’ve already shown you the magic of a personal and organic vegetable garden at the Sebastopol Sanctuary, now we would like to show you a few amazing photos of this Modern Tree House estate located in the Hollywood Hills. The property is situated amongst a lush backdrop of forestry, the beautiful Los Angeles Skyline and also happens to be LEED gold certified.

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system,  providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.” – U.S. Green Building Council

Enjoy a relaxing weekend by the pool, and rest easy knowing your vacation rental is doing more for the environment than you ever thought possible! The venue is complete with solar panels, denim insulation, fully recycled steel, an Energy Star kitchen and home appliances built with nontoxic Low VOC materials.
