Taking a cue from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest speech on the environment, actress Rachel McAdams and some of her best friends have started a website called Green Is Sexy.

It’s not uncommon these days for celebrities to start websites for causes they’re passionate about — especially the environment. Leonardo DiCaprio, Daryl Hannah, and Woody Harrelson come to mind. What is unusual is that McAdams and Co. are making this a real casual affair and looking for your input on tips, sexy green people, and other issues that might help make a difference. From the site,

green is sexy is about tiny changes, big impact. Why sexy? Because being informed is sexy. Being responsible is sexy. Being eco-friendly is sexy. Making a difference is sexy. Green is sexy. We invite you to become part of the green is sexy community by helping us change the world one day at a time.”

In the words of Borat, “Very Nice!”

Megan, Rachel and Didi all offer profiles about their eco backgrounds and why they believe in the power of green. This is from McAdams profile,

“Today, her bike is still her vehicle of choice and she isn’t above the occasional snow fort. But she’s trying to lighten her footprint on the earth – supporting tree planting organizations, switching her house to green power and developing an OCD for unplugging anything with a plug. She dreams of one day living in a treehouse and being able to grow her own food.”

Who wouldn’t want to live in a treehouse? The ladies also have a “CFL Spotlight of the Month” that highlights people making a difference in the world. This month’s highlight is Steve Fish of Left Feet Shoe Company. You can check out their interview with him here.

Anyways, another beautiful website on green living comes together. Sure, it helps that McAdams provides a little star power behind the label, but anyone putting in the effort online to help others is a celebrity. We just don’t get paid as much. Or at all.

Hit the website for some sexy green advice.

Thanks to Anne for the find!

    Hi Rachel,
    I am a teacher in St Thomas. I also am friends with Michelle and we met at a bon fire in Port shortly after Joanne Brooks passed away….anyway…sorry to bug you but…I am trying to get the intermediate kids motivated for environmental issues…any chance you could email a hello greeting to our Environmental Club? No worries if you are too busy-totally understand but…just thought if you had a minute to tell them that it matters, they may perk an ear. Thanks a million and hope you aren’t working too hard.

    I was hoping I could convince Ms. Adams to donate some books to a Book Club (completely non profiy) that myself and other low uncome mothers like myself are hoping to start soon on the area we live. Our goal is as follows:

    -We want to foster a life long love of learning, reading and expanding childrens’ minds
    -We would lile to provide a forum to nuild important skills like public s[eaking, debate, shift perspective in children to round out their reading experience.
    – We also believe this will be a great opportunity for children to socialize with learning minded peers and not be sucked in by this areas low attandance and high drop out rate from out local highschool.

    We are not looking for money but for books for boys and girls in range from 6 years to 12 years we are from Ingersoll Ontario 20 minutes from your hometown children are committingt more serious crimes much younger and I am also kind of hoping that any support comes from you it may give some of these children incentive to al leasttry
