Paris HiltonEcoist, say it isn’t so!! We previously told you that Paris Hilton  is reported to carry an Ecoist bag (Tipper Gore, too), made of candy wrappers…perhaps mistaking it for real candy. Now here is the latest skinny directly from The Scoop:

Paris Hilton is close to signing a deal to promote, an eco-friendly accessories company, but the execs at the company are getting a tad nervous about the prospect of trotting out the heiress as a spokeswoman.

For every recycled fashion product that people buy online, plants a tree through an organization called Trees for the Future.

“Ecoist is hoping that Paris will join them in October on a trip to Port-Au-Prince to plant more than 40,000 trees,” a source says. “But when she was told about the trip, Paris had no idea where Haiti was. When she was told that they speak French there [along with Creole], she said, ‘I wouldn’t mind spending a few days there and the weekend in Paris.”

    Hey now…any green news is good green news. Paris could bring a lot of attention to the movement. We’ll probably find her in a Hummer the very next week but hey…a headline is a headlin.

    I can understand the company wanting to choose a celebrity to promote their products — but Paris? C’mon, I think there are more stars of Laguna Beach or Dancing With The Stars that could do a better job than her in representing the company. Then again, it they’re simply going for paparazzi attention, I guess there’s no comparison.
