French fries. French toast. French Eco-Friendly Christmas? You better believe it!! Paris (not Hilton) just unveiled plans to follow New York City’s lead and bring in the New Year with their own resolution: a greener, more energy efficient holiday season.
Paris Mayor, Bertrand Delanoe, and French singer and actress, Vanessa Paradis, were on site at the annual lighting of the trees which kicks off the holidays and has been a Paris tradition for 26 years. However this year marks a new tradition: energy efficient light bulbs. As you walk the path between the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde you will notice that all one million bulbs are completely energy-efficient. They’ve estimated that it will provide eight times the shine and cut the bill by 70 percent. As Ecorazzi reported earlier, NYC has also decided to green it up this holiday season with the lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center, where celebrities such as Carrie Underwood and Celion Dion performed.
Thank you for kickin ass this holiday season and going green for the good of us all.
ps. Also, thank you for the Statue Of Liberty.
