Louis Vuitton Celebrates Earth Day

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, 10% of all sales purchased on www.louisvuitton.com on April 22nd, 2010 will be donated to Global Green USA. The donation to Global Green will support their Green Schools Initiative, focused on greening K-12 schools in several major United States cities including New Orleans and Los Angeles.

Global Green USA is working to create healthy green schools in Los Angeles, New Orleans, and cities throughout the country with its national Green Schools Initiative. Today most cash-strapped schools spend more money on electricity than on books and computers. For the past five years, Global Green has worked with the Los Angeles Unified School District to insure that the largest new school construction project in the country is built to healthy, green standards. When Global Green expanded its effort in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, schools became a critical component of the rebuilding efforts there. As a direct result of Global Green’s Green Schools Initiative, tens of thousands of students from overcrowded and rundown schools across the U.S. now attend classes in healthy classrooms in state-of-the-art green schools.

In addition to partnering with Global Green, Louis Vuitton will share messages from key influencers like Zoe Saldana, Pharrell Williams, Rachel Zoe, Nina Garcia and Andre Leon Talley, detailing their own personal steps to protect the environment.
