Go Celebrity Green

By |   June - 19 - 2009

Celebrities are an interesting sort when it comes to environmentalism, eco-consciousness, and the green movement. There are few that are really committed to making a change in their lives and there are many that are just looking to make a statement and garner some publicity. But that small handful that is doing it right is really helping the environment and should seriously be commended.

If you’d like to do what you can to go green, follow the lead of some of the top celebrities in the eco-movement.

Johnny Depp

Okay if you don’t want to be with Johnny Depp you want to be him, so how about living a little like he does. Johnny Depp took the leap in 2005 and converted his Bahamas Island home to run on solar hydrogen technology. You may not have the finances to totally transform your home’s energy profile, but you can work to incorporate Solar Energy Solutions into your home in varying degrees. Start small with solar lighting in your landscaping and move from there into the more elaborate solar panels and air collectors.

 

Daryl Hannah

Daryl Hannah has been touted as the most eco-conscious celebrity around and her home is totally off the grid. Hannah even has a couch made of mossy stone that she has to water to keep alive. But we’re not suggesting you go that far, smaller steps are the best way to start. Daryl Hannah drives a biodiesel vehicle and you too can go biodiesel. Biodiesel fuel is a domestic renewable fuel created from natural oils, such as soybean oil. Going biodiesel will take a little education for most people but once you’ve learned how to incorporate Biodiesel Processing into your life you’ll be doing a lot for the world’s future.

 

Ed Begley, Jr.

Ed Begley, Jr. is widely known for his environmental beliefs and his reality television program “Living with Ed” may be ushering in a new wave of eco-conscious programming. Begley seems to do almost everything right when it comes to saving the environment but one thing he’s most vocal about and promotes strongly is the use of wind power through Residential Wind Turbines. Economically speaking, Begley puts wind power ahead of solar because it’s simply more affordable. A 2,000 watt vertical turbine can be purchased for around $4,000 which is only $2 a watt — way less expensive than solar. The only downside is you need a bit of land and the right conditions to take advantage of wind power.
