E! wants you to Play a Part and make this world a better place. On their website it states,
Socially conscious celebrities often use their energy and influence to support important causes. But lending a hand is not just about star status. There are plenty of organizations that could use your help. Get inspired. Get involved. Play a part.
That’s kind of what we’re about here at Ecorazzi. E!’s got it set up so that you can learn more about organizations and charities such as Clothes Off Our Back, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and World AIDS Day.
Additionally, as reader Jasmin points out, they’ll sell you some stuff to help eco-ize your life. Like a plastic bottle to carry your water in. Or a blue canvas bag for the stores. Umm, we like where your head is at, E!, but the execution is a little off. How about encouraging viewers to use more eco-friendly products such as a Sigg bottle or hemp bags? We like the selection that reusablebags.com has to offer. (And no, I don’t get any money for saying that, I just like their stuff.) Of course, the proceeds of E!’s bag goes to EMA, a worthy non-profit.
Tough call. We agree with the general message, as well as supporting great organizations, but aren’t in love with the actual products. Do, however, take a moment to check out the Play a Part site – the videos are great.
