Pömed: Eco-Friendly Event Coming to NYC


Pömed is an unique eco-friendly and sustainable special event which merges the world of interior, production, display, product, and fashion design with the world of activism and performance arts. Created by verte, a NYC-based sustainably-minded design, lifestyle, and branding office, Pömed (Protect Our Mother Earth's Daughters) will launch during this year's "Until The Violence Stops NYC": a festival of theatre, comedy, spoken word and hip-hop and performance presented by V-Day. Pömed's purpose is to raise monies, supplies, and awareness for the epidemic of violence against the planet and its people; to this end, it is presenting a unique on-line auction consisting of eco-chic fashion, art, services, along with other unique auction pieces from June 7 - 22. On June 20, as the virtual fund-raiser winds down, verte will also be hosting a ticketed Pömed cocktail party/fundraiser, which will include a unique fashion and photo auction along with raffles of green and sustainable products and services. Proceeds of the benefit go to Architecture For Humanity-NY, NYC Made (under construction), Bpeace and more. Sponsors and contributors to the event include Elle Magazine, Lü Magazine, Element, 3R Living, DesignTex, Ecoist, Green Loop, Stop Global Warming, Q Collection, and more. If you're in NYC and don't already have plans to go to HauteGREEN, it looks like a worthwhile event. ::Pömed and ::verte via ::V-Day
