The World's Only Eco-Friendly Vodka Formalizes Event Partnership with Global Green

WESTON, MO, June 11 /PRNewswire/ - This Saturday, Global Green USA will host their 14th Annual Millennium awards, featuring sustainable cocktails by the world's only eco-friendly vodka, 360 Vodka. This high profile event honors individuals and organizations who have helped foster a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future, one of several Global Green annual events where 360 Vodka is the exclusive and official Global Green spirit served.

An environmental match made in heaven, Global Green USA and 360 Vodka formed an event partnership this year born from a shared commitment to the environment. This partnership will be celebrated with sustainable cocktails created and served especially for Millennium Award guests, by 360 Vodka's Brand Ambassador, Graham Kimura.

"Global Green is pleased to have 360 Vodka as an official event partner this year, said Matt Petersen, CEO of Global Green USA. "From the ingredients, to the distillation, to the creation of a sustainable bottle, and even through their shipping and marketing, 360 Vodka's sustainability practices are dramatically reducing their environmental footprint, and are setting a standard for the industry."

Those who attended Global Green's annual Pre-Oscar party know that 360 Vodka is distilled in one of the most energy efficient distilleries in the country and features a unique swing-top closure that consumers can return to the distillery for reuse in the prepaid envelope provided. For each swing-top closure 360 Vodka receives, $1.00 is donated to Global Green USA.

"Choosing Global Green USA to be the official recipient of our swing-top donations was an easy decision," said Ed Pechar, Chairman of the Earth Friendly Distilling Company, makers of 360 Vodka. "With impactful programs and events like the Millennium Awards, we're proud to support their commitment to create a sustainable future."

Tickets for the Millennium Awards can be purchased online at www.globalgreen.org/millennium or by calling Michael Teta Associates at 818-906-0240. Indulge in 360 Vodka green martinis, cucumber lemonade cocktails and double chocolate jalapeno martinis this Saturday, June 12th at the Fairmont Miramar in Santa Monica. This year's honorees include Global Green's own Matt Petersen, James Cameron and Suzy Amis Cameron, the US EPA, the UC System, and the W Hollywood Hotel & Residences.

About 360 Vodka

Designed to leave the smallest footprint on earth, 360 Vodka uses 85 percent recycled glass, 100 percent recycled paper and water based inks. 360 Vodka is distilled in the country's most energy efficient distillery that reduces fossil fuel energy by 21%, compared to the popular pot distilling method which uses 200% more energy. In addition, the grains used are grown less than 95 miles from the distillery, distilled four times and filtered five times giving it that distinctive, smooth taste that has been awarded gold medals from spirits competitions in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago.
