Portsea Polo 2012 had a touch of ‘Green’

Cool Australia Green Room at the Portsea Polo

A warm Saturday in early January 2012 saw the annual Portsea Polo get a ‘touch of green’ through the addition of Cool Australias ‘Green Room’ marquee thanks to Jason Kimberley, Deb Hallmark and the team at coolaustralia.org

With more than 4000 at the polo, just 180 guests were able to enjoy the eco friendly, sustainable marquee where we drank champagne from recycled jars, through biodegradable straws, whilst sitting on hay bales surrounded by walls of potted strawberries and wooden crates filled with  herbs, fruits and vegatables.

Contributions made by Joost design and  food by Damm Fine Foods and with the best field side position we enjoyed the polo matches whilst making a worthy contribution to the Cool Australia Not-for-Profit organisation.

As the day drew to a close guests grabbed their potted strawberry plant, said goodbyes to new friends and headed off. A great day was had by all and I am sure future polo events will also get a ‘touch of green’.
