Products for the home are increasingly popping up at celebrity gift suites – those award season events where stars load up on cool new stuff. Here are some finds from the 2013 Emmy Awards gift suites.
Actor Ed Begley Jr. attended as a vendor, gifting celebrities Begley’s and Bill’s Sodas, a line of carbonated drinks that have zero calories, zero sodium, zero caffeine, zero fat, zero carbohydrates and zero sugar. “I am not really big on attending gifting suites but this was a great way for me to introduce our new sodas to some of the Hollywood community," he said.
Begley also has Earth Responsible Products, a line of natural cleaning products. “They work as well as any of the toxic cleaners, but are safe around people and pets." Catch the veteran actor in On Begley Street on EvoxTelevision.com and in HBO’s Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight. Begley’s new Web show, Betas, launches on Amazon.com in a few months.
In the spirit of giving back, Begley and other celebrities signed a poster benefiting Wednesday’s Child, a weekly television feature about adoption that helps find permanent, loving, adoptive families for children in foster care. Many guests donated new and unwrapped gifts for children ages 13-18 for a Pre-Holiday Gift Drive.
