Sunday Times reveals hypocrisy as practised by the “green” celebrities

Celebrities are going green for the sake of the planet, or at least that’s what they’d have us believe. In fact, as far as the glitterati are concerned, green is the new black.

You can hardly open a glossy magazine these days without some celebrities talking about their hybrid motor, carbon offsetting scheme or backyard wind farm.

All of which is a good thing, it’s great when public figures bring attention to important issues. But it’s even better when their lives can truly reflect their intentions.

The Sunday Times Online posted an article this weekend on some of the raging eco-hypocrisy rampant in Hollywood these days.

Sheryl Crow, John Travolta, Trudie Styler, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Harrison Ford and others are taken to task for not walking their talk. Among the egregious offenses are Crow’s 30 person entourage which followed behind her biodiesel tour bus in 13 gas-powered vehicles as well as Al Gore’s bill for heating his indoor swimming pool.

Several celebs (e.g: American actress Jennifer Aniston) were also outed for flying a variety of hairstylists and chefs halfway across the world for single events.

Edward Norton Raises Over $1Million for Conservation Trust


Edward Norton has achieved his goal of raising more than $1 million for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust.

The fundraising effort began in late summer when Norton and a team of runners, including 3 Maasai warriors, sought sponsorship in running the New York City Marathon.

The goal: to raise money and awareness for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, a Kenya-based conservation organization with a U.S. nonprofit partner — for whose board Norton serves as president.

All of the money raised, which totaled some $750,000 after the marathon in early November, went towards the Trust to support education, wildlife conservation, and medical services. But Norton wanted more.

He wrote on Twitter: “Trying to raise 1 million by the end of next week. We’re close.”

Eleven days later, using a variety of signed movie collectibles and other giveaways, Norton and his team crossed the finish line. The current total now stands at $1,005,977.

Congratulations to Team Norton on raising cash that will make an enormous difference for both the people and wildlife of Kenya.
