Do Celebs Inspire You To Be Eco-Friendly?

Adrian Grenier happily hopped into his Toyota Prius hybrid after running some errands in LA the other day. He's just one of the many celebrities who are very vocal about their environmental activism. Between the concerts, magazine covers and PSAs, it's impossible to ignore these stars as they keep doing good, so we want to know - are you inspired to be more eco-friendly?

I am from Costa Rica and is in our blood to be ecofriendly everything we do there is related to keep our forest clean. Now that I live in America I still keep my costumes, my culture which is Pura Vida!... (Pure Life!)

You do what you can ... but celebs have the money and means to do way more than us little people could ever dream of.

NO! They mostly seem like they are all just going along with the trend. Plus it's mostly a waste, they may be driving a hybrid car, but they do a lot more damage to the environment with all the private flights and such.

Sure they're good role models but they're not my inspiration. I don't need a celebrity wanting to help save out enviroment as my muse for being eco friendly. Celebrities just add more light to it because of thier status. I think it should be a forefront in everyone's minds. We each should take steps to be eco friendly and if a celeb is doing it with us, then that's just one more person in the fight.

I try to be eco-friendly because that's what I want to do, not because the celebs are doing it.

No they are hypocrites: HOUSE # 1: A 20-room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house all heated by gas. In ONE MONTH ALONE this mansion consumes more energy than the average American household in an ENTIRE YEAR. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400.00 per month. In natural gas alone (which last time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not in a northern or Midwestern "snow belt," either. It's in the South. HOUSE # 2: Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university, this house incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house contains only 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on arid high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in winter and cools it in summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes 25% of the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Flowers and shrubs native to the area blends the property into the surrounding rural landscape. HOUSE # 1 (20 room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of Nashville, Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned environmentalist (and filmmaker) Al Gore. HOUSE # 2 (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas. Also known as "the Texas White House," it is the private residence of the President of the United States, George W. Bush. So whose house is gentler on the environment? Yet another story you WON'T hear on CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC or read about in the New York Times or the Washington Post. Indeed, for Mr. Gore, it's truly "an inconvenient truth."

nah, they don't inspire me. i think it's great that they're shedding light on the issue though. more of us need to be eco-friendly. i think everyone can be eco-friendly in some small way - we don't all need to drive a prius!

I like being eco-friendly because our earth needs it and not because a celebrity looks good saying it. All the hairsprays and products they use are damaging enough and also count the effects they use when they shoot movies especially action movies.

They don't really inspire me. They'd inspire me if the keep it up until the day the day - and I doubt that. At the moment to me their eco-friendly behaviour only looks like a new trend. Sadly enough. But I live 'green' for the last 25 years. And I keep on living that way, but not because some more or less famous people are starting a trend, but because I was raised that way.

No, not really. If they'll still do it by the next 10 years, I'd agree.

no-celebs do not inspire me. I couldn't care less about their opinions. I am eco-friendly because I grew up being taught not to waste things.

ilovefab4, I agree! I don't have a problem with people like Al Gore and Nacy Pelosi having these things but don't lecture the America people about driving a Suburban! I have 6 people in my family and I need a big SUV so bad. I currently have a mini-van that seats 7 but it is difficult to get everyone in and forget about going on any weekend trips as there is no room for luggage or totting around kids stuff. As soon as I can afford one, I'm getting some big SUV to haul my little crumb-snatchers around in, LOL, and Al & Nancy can bite my big white bottom!

Celebrities don't inspire me to be eco-friendly or even more eco-friendly. In fact, people like Al Gore and super preachy celebrities make me want to buy a big honking SUV. Anything I do to be good to the environment is because I want to, it doesn't cost much more than the alternative, or to set a good example for my children. I'm sure some of these celebrities mean well but it doesn't make them "cool". Most of them have huge mansions, multipe homes, use private planes, etc.

It's one of the few areas in life in which following celeb cues would be advisable.

Where's the "I'm eco-concious because I friggin' well want to be, regardless of WHO is driving a Prius in Hollywood" option?
ilovefab4 ilovefab4 8 years
No, because most of them are hypocrites. Anyone remember Sheryl Crow's little tour? Did anyone see her list of tour demands on thesmokinggun? She may only use one square of toilet paper, but she needed a bizillion bottles of import beer at every stop. Or all of the politicians with their jumbo jets--did you know private jet gives off more emissions in one flight than most cars do in a year? Nancy Pelosi had to get a bigger one than her predecessor had when she became SOH, too. And there's Al Gore's giant heated pool. Give me a FREAKIN' BREAK.

I do what I can...but not because some stupid celebrity smiles on the cover of a magazine...is obvious the climate is suffering..you just have to watch the news and all the crazy weather to know that something is not right!

No, I'm glad they can actually afford to be eco-friendly, but I can't right now. Not everyone has a celebrity bank account.
dizzlemcd dizzlemcd 8 years
No, I think it can be detrimental. I love the new eco-friendly movement, and am glad that celebs are helping raise the profile, but all it takes is one annoying celeb to ruin it for some. cough..*michael moore*..cough.
