LOS ANGELES—Ballantines PR has formed Ballantines Green, offering consulting services to clients who are seeking to enhance their environmental profile and increase focus on their socially responsible practices and led by veteran environmental consultants Scott Fischler and Kahlil Kettering.
“We want to make a positive difference through our work,” says BPR founder Sarah Robarts, who says her firm works with clients in film and entertainment, travel, hospitality, fashion and leisure. “Many of our clients already have a strong ecological consciousness, and we would like to encourage others to follow their example.”
For example, Uncharted Outposts, a BPR client based in Santa Fe, NM, is a safari company and ecotourism pioneer that also supports Tusk International, a wildlife preservation fund. And BPR helped Los Angeles-based Viridis Luxe introduce its luxurious fashions, woven from eco-friendly hemp-cashmere and hemp-silk blends.
