Evite Partners with Bravo to ‘Give Green’ to the National Audubon Society

LOS ANGELES, April 22 /PRNewswire/ — In honor of Earth Day, Evite (www.evite.com), the leading online invitation and social planning service on the Web and operating business of IAC (Nasdaq: IACI), has partnered with Bravo Media to create a special, celebrity-designed collection of online invitations that are not only tree-free, but also give back to the environment in a new way. From now until May 31, each time a design from the collection is used, Evite and Bravo will donate $1 to the National Audubon Society, one of the country’s longest standing organizations supporting ecological conservation.

The special “Go Green” collection, featured on both Evite.com and BravoTV.com, showcases invitation designs contributed by a variety of Bravo celebs, with stylish invites for a variety of occasions – from dinner parties to birthday celebrations, from brunches to girls’ nights.

Tying this collection to the National Audubon Society reinforces the eco-friendly aspect of sending online invitations. As the leader in the online invitation space, Evite will send over 250 million online invitations this year, which, in bypassing paper invitations and envelopes, will save over 200,000 trees. “Evite invitations are always a great way to go green, and, in celebration of Earth Day, we are very excited to partner with Bravo to create this collection of celebrity invitations that support the National Audubon Society,” said Rosanna McCollough, General Manager of Evite.
