It featured public officials "modeling the latest garments made of organic cotton and other environmentally-friendly fabrics by environmentally-responsible designers and clothing companies to support the Coalition’s programs," says a release by organizers.

The sportcoat is "made from an environmentally-sustainable blend of hemp and yak. Hemp gives this sportcoat rich texture and substance, while yak adds to the luxurious softness. He's also wearing Norm Thompson's tencel jeans. Tencel is a durable, eco-friendly natural fiber." (Further information: www.normthompson.com.)

In September 2004, the Coalition for Clean Air joined in an appeal to the LB City Council, opposing certification of a Port of LB Environmental Impact Report on expansion of Pier J. Following a bruising City Council hearing, the Port reexamined and rescinded its EIR, pledging to rework the document.
