Many trends are incubated in tinsel town

Many trends are incubated in Tinsel Town. These fads spread like wildfire, having large masses of people scrambling for the new and coolest, «in thing.» Fortunately celebrities are using this trend power to create awareness for the green movement. The following celebrities are using their star power to create awareness for the green movement in the bathroom. One of the most wasteful places in the home.

Star signer Sheryl Crow and A list actor Will Smith are taking their toilet paper usage seriously. Sheryl crow uses one square at a time and advices all to follow her example. Will Smith has just recently purchased a high tech toilet, which uses sprays of water to carry out the toilet paper’s regular duties. Affording a high tech toilet may be out of your budget but conserving Toilet paper is a good idea. Try to purchase EPA approved toilet paper and recycled toilet paper. Seriously every square counts. In the United States alone we use over ten million tress just for toilet paper. Not to mention the dyes and chemicals used during the manufacturing process. These harmful chemicals leak into our environment creating a negative impact.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jackie Chan, and Cameron Diaz are conserving water with every flush. Cameron Diaz lives by the credo, «if it’s yellow leave it mellow, if it’s brown flush it down.» Jackie Chan has his own twist on Diaz’s mantra, he flushes only once at the end of each day. Environmentally conscious trendsetter Leo spent over three thousand dollars on a low flow toilet. All these actors believe the public should follow their lead or at least be more conscious of the next flush. In the US the average person flushes twenty gallons of fresh water down the drain. There is really no need for such wasteful habits. There are toilets available that significantly cut down on the amount of water flushed. Dual flush toilets are prime example of one of these water conserving toilets. They can reduce water consumption by four thousand gallons per year.

Jennifer Aniston has limited her showers to 3 minutes. She explains that the every two minutes of showering uses as much water as an African has for one day. The average American spends eight minutes in the shower and the average shower head produces 2 gallons per minute. This comes to wasteful sixteen gallons of fresh water for cleaning ourselves. By following Jen’s lead we could all decrease the amount of time spent in the shower. Saving tons of our worlds most precious resource, water.

I couldn’t mention Jennifer Aniston with out mentioning Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie have been providing millions of dollars for the reconstruction efforts in New Orleans post Katrina. Most of the funds are allocated toward building green homes complete with energy and water saving appliances and fixtures. 

We may not have the money or the star power of these celebs but we can do our part to carry on there message. It only takes small steps towards a more Eco-friendly lifestyle.
