It’s not quite champagne wishes or caviar dreams, but supermodel-turned-mommy Cindy Crawford is now offering tips on how to live a more environmentally conscious life.
Crawford appeared on ABC’s May 7 “Good Morning America” to share with viewers something “a little less red carpet, a little more green” – her “eco-awakening.”
“I mean, we’ve all have seen the Al Gore movie and green is on, it’s on top of the mind for everybody,” Crawford said. “But, it is overwhelming. I have a very full life as well, so it’s like ‘Oh, I can’t compost my own stuff.’”
That’s sounds great, except the reusable water bottle, made by a company that directly competes with the bottled water industry, isn’t cheap.
According to “Good Morning America” host Diane Sawyer, Crawford was studying to be a chemical engineer at Northwestern before New York beckoned, but she might have missed a math class or two when they were teach percentages.
According to Crawford and the “Thirsty for Change” Web site, Americans use 50 billion water bottles a year.
Thirty-eight billion is not 50 percent of 50 billion. Assuming that Crawford is correct about 38 billion unrecycled bottles that would mean roughly 24 percent of them are recycled.
In April, Vanity Fair announced Crawford would be a regular blogger for their Web site.
Crawford wrote on April 15 that other eco-celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Laurie David and Sheryl Crow, have been inspirations for her.
