If I am honest before I really understood the whole ‘green’ and environmentally friendly concept I thought it was a bit geeky and only for those uni students who want an ‘experience’. However, the more I learn about the concept, the more I understand and follow it – the more I see it is more a way of life and is a lifestyle that is not what I originally thought.
It seems that more people are clocking on to the fact that caring about our environment by being more energy efficientt and looking after our bodies by taking notice of what is going into our foods and exploring organic products. Celebrities are no exception to this realization, take Natalie Portman for example, the American beauty who has starred in films such as Closer with Jude Law is one of Hollywood’s most eco friendly celeb. Natalie has even dedicated her spare time to launch her vegan friendly shoe collection.
Other celebs include the sexy ex of Jenifer Anniston, John Mayer. John has vowed to reduce his carbon footprint by ensuring coaches used for when he is touring to be fueled with bio-diesel, he is also working towards the presence of an ‘eco-village‘ at venues where he will tour. These villages will be used to educate his fans on being more eco friendly.
Finally there is Britains sweetheart Leona Lewis. Leona is the the perfect example of how cool green can be, the pop starlet is anything but geeky and proves that being green can be sexy! Miss Lewis stated “I am vegetarian so I don’t have clothes, shoes or bags made from leather or suede, or any animal products… I’m on a mission,” Her attitude has impressed not only he fans but also animal rights group PETA. PETA have been so impressed by her dedication that she is now a spokesperson for them and an ideal role model!
