“The Earth is at a tipping point and we face a stark choice: either we continue as we are and irreparably damage our planet, or we remember our unique power as human beings and our continual ability to lead, innovate and problem-solve. People can achieve great things. The next ten years present us with one of our greatest tests – a decade of action to repair the Earth”  – William, The Prince of Wales

The first Eartshot Prize ceremony was held at the Alexandra Palace in London last year in October. And this year the awards are being held at the MGM Music Hall in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.  Boston was selected for its own incredible sustainability projects.  Yesterday, The 2021 Finalists Living Seawalls announced they will partner with the Stone Living Lab on an ecological restoration project on the Boston harbour’s existing coastal seawalls to support the region’s climate resiliency efforts.

Tonight’s award ceremony was equally green and environment-friendly. The guests were asked to select something old or vintage from their wardrobe for the evening look. There were 3 acres of plants at the show, which will be donated afterwards. The green carpet was the same one that was used at the 2021 awards show. Makeup for tonight was cruelty-free and vegan, all food was plant-based, attendees were arriving in electric vehicles and there were no single-use plastics.

A look at this year’s Finalists.

And the Presenters of the evening were as above. A surprised presenter of the evening was British Football champion, David Beckham.

Heading towards The Princess of Walse’s style – The Princess debuted a bright green Solace London The Sabina Maxi Dress. Thanks to UFONoMore for the quick id.

The gown was not an actual purchase. As the guests were asked to keep their outfits sustainable and eco-friendly, The Princess of Wales actually rented the gown from the British label through British Rental Platform HURR for £60.

The Princess of Wales, Catherine, wore Queen Mary's Emerald Choker Necklace

The dazzling element of the look was Queen Mary’s Emerald Choker Necklace. The stunning jewel dates back to 1911 when it was presented as a 16-cabochon emeralds choker to Queen Mary during Delhi Durbar and she had it redesigned to its current 14-cabochon emeralds set in platinum in the Art Deco style in 1920 by Garrard.  You can read more about the Choker in detail here.
