John Abraham in PETA Campaign, Let Vegetarianism Grow On YouThe India Times recently took a few moments of their time to discuss the greening of Hollywood and the Oscars, and how Indian celebs are also doing their part. Even though they start off by saying that Global Green is a car company, we’ll assume that they’ve got the rest of their facts straight.

Lilette Dubey no longer burns crackers. Any guesses as to what that means? Here’s a clue: it’s because of child labor and noise pollution. Anything? I have to admit, I was imagining people burning saltines in some ceremony. She is referring to firecrackers, and they are associated with child labor issues (children as young as 3 working in terrible conditions) and noise pollution especially affecting infants, the elderly and animals. Read on.

Fashion designer Hemant Trivedi has pledged against using leather and merino wool. She also participated in the Let Vegetarianism Grow on You PETA campaign to dress celebrities Aditi Govitrikar and John Abraham in vegetables.

Playwright Mahesh Dattani encourages two car families to sell of one and figure out how to do with just one vehicle saying that he prefers “walking whenever distances allow that.”

I can’t say that I find anything profound about this article. (Though that child labor issue is quite disturbing.) What I really see is a journalist that wants to see her local celebrities making a bigger impact, and trying to promote what some have already done. Say what you want about celebrities “going green” in the spotlight, but people are looking for role-models who are doing the right thing.
