Industry Leader’s “Walk the Green Carpet with Caroma” Promotion Brings Water Conservation to Forefront

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Caroma®, the world leader in innovative, high-efficiency toilet suites and sinks, was a key sponsor at Hollywood’s “greenest” Pre-Oscar® event, the Global Green Pre-Oscar party held on Wednesday, February 23, 2011. This was the 8th consecutive Hollywood event for Global Green, a non-profit organization working to address some of the greatest challenges facing humanity by creating sustainable buildings and cities.

Over the past several months, Caroma hosted a contest for a chance to “Walk the Green Carpet with Caroma” at the 2011 Pre-Oscar Party. Prizes for this unique green contest — which was eligible to dealers who fulfilled purchase orders of Caroma product totaling $5,000 or more — was ultimately awarded to three winners, giving them a chance to attend the exclusive Global Green Pre-Oscar Party. In addition, winners received roundtrip airfare to Los Angeles and accommodations at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa – a gorgeous hotel that proudly features Caroma toilets and has earned a prestigious ENERGY STAR label from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Welcoming celebrities and eco-luminaries from around the world, Caroma was the toilet manufacturer of choice at the Pre-Oscar event, held at the Avalon Hollywood. Bringing together Hollywood’s biggest stars on the green carpet including Orlando Bloom, Kate Bosworth, Jim Carrey, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Nealon and director Roland Emmerich, the latest on Global Green’s initiatives were discussed. Contest winners got the chance to enjoy a VIP experience in the upstairs nightclub, Bardot, socializing and enjoying cocktails around an organic bar, as well as taking in performances by world-renowned musical guests like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Best Coast.

“Caroma is proud to have been a key sponsor of the 2011 Global Green Pre-Oscar Party,” said Derek Kirkpatrick, Caroma North America General Manager. “Global Green’s mission coalesces with Caroma’s passion for promoting water-conservation through our high-efficiency products. We always say that ‘one flush can make a difference in the world’ and this contest embodies our sentiment.”

The event was not only a night of celebrating eco-awareness and spreading the green message, but it also solidified Caroma’s unique position in the bath industry as a company passionate and committed to the green movement.
