Paris Hilton is in Berlin this week promoting a new sparkling wine sold in cans and also updating the rest of us on her environmental efforts. ”I changed all the light bulbs to energy-safe light bulbs and I’m buying a hybrid car right now,” the 26-year-old celebrity heiress said Wednesday. According to StarPulse, Hilton “turns off the lights, doesn’t leave the TV on or the water running when she leaves her house.” She continued, ”These are little things that people can do every day to make a huge difference.” Which in Paris’s case are instantly negated by the private jet she most likely used to fly to and fro Berlin.
However, much like rock star Slash’s ‘small differences’ quote last week, Paris is advocating some good first small steps people can take to make their homes more energy-efficient. Regarding the hybrid car, we’re about as skeptical on that one as when Paris first starting dropping eco bombs early last year. Who could forget this quote? “I like hybrids, but a lot of them aren’t that cute. I’m thinking silver … or maybe I’ll get a green one!” This was back in August. In fact, we’re starting to see some celebrities display intentions but take their time in following through. Heroes star Hayden Panettiere vowed to get rid of her Porsche SUV back in early June but continues to drive it today — with that unfortunate action undermining her other efforts in the eyes of critics.
So, it remains to be seen if Paris will indeed be shuttled around in a hybrid or will simply continue to debate the cuteness factor. With many months between when she first decided to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle to now, there’s not much to indicate a change in business as usual.
Enjoy the flight home.
