snipshot_d4srps7qhrv.jpgWe’ve profiled Adrian Grenier before on the ‘Razzi, but a lot of the information we’ve received has been a little light on the personal side. We know his Brooklyn home is green — solar panels, recycled blue-jean insulation — but now we’ve learned a few other bits as well. From the article,

“Actor Adrian Grenier and his mother Karesse Grenier, a former Corcoran agent, have rebuilt an 1890’s house in the Bedford-Stuyvesant–Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn with recycled blue-jean insulation, a solar roof, reclaimed oak floors and so on. Speaking from his hybrid Prius while driving around L.A., where he’s filming the fourth season of Entourage, Mr. Grenier said that his eco-consciousness began when his mother gave him a copy of Chief Seattle’s speech to the white man about how can you buy this land that is always kind. He has gone through different phases of thinking about the carbon-emissions problem: ‘From compulsive obsession to apathy, but now I have balance,’ he said. ‘It’s being less about myself saving the world, [more about] creating an environment that I would want to live in.'”

Those are pretty much the various stages of going green. It can get a little heavy in the middle there. Those that are exposed to Peak Oil for the first time also report a sense of depression. Once you figure out your place in this giant mess, it just comes down to doing the best you can and enjoying the world around you. What’s that bumper sticker? “Be the change you wish to see in the world”? My guess is Grenier has got that on back of his Prius.
