How was it started? In 2008, five friends came up with a birthday party designed for more than just getting gifts. Matthew Evans and Joanna Casey hosted the first 'Teen Green Party with a Purpose’ in October 2008. It turned out to be far more fun than they’d imagined and learned that other teens wanted to have a party with service projects, too. Matthew Evans started Discover Green to support more projects and parties. The first Eco-Inspiration Coaches for the organization are Alec Bainter, Hallie and Joanna Casey, Stephen and Sarah Young and Grayce and Daeland Angle.
