U.N Elects Chinese Actress Zhou Xun As First Green Ambassador
Last week the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) elected the very first National Goodwill Ambassador to promote environmental responsibility. Sure they could have picked George Clooney or Ed Begley Jr., but instead they went with the dark horse candidate — Chinese actress Zhou Xun.
Xun may not be a household name here in the U.S, but her popularity is international and most importantly she’s big in China where green living still has yet to really catch on. And since we all know that celebrity initiative can save the day, Xun’s example just might help create some real change in her home country.
Zhou says that she hopes to come up with “clever ways to communicate with people, and help people to protect the environment in clever ways.” She continues to reveal, “To save water, I personally try not to take baths anymore (only showers). Habits can be very hard to change but I want to let people know that we can all make a difference.” Amen to that sister.
So welcome to the green club Zhou Xun. The Ecorazzi team is excited about keeping our little green eye on all your eco-activities. See you in the funny pages!
