British power company npower has found a supporter in pop star Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and she’s working to promote their Greener Schools programme. The project involves assisting schools in becoming greener and more energy-efficient, providing free energy audits and also helping students learn more about what they can do for the environment.
She says, “Maybe it is my guilty conscience. As a pop star, you build up quite a bad carbon footprint from all the flights, touring, lights and so on, so I suppose it’s a way of using my profile to slightly rectify the balance.”
The pop star is also involved in other causes, supporting anti-fur campaigns and also promoting climate change awareness with I Count. Check out this interview with Sophie to learn about why she’s taking action to protect the environment and to get more information on the Greener Schools project.
