Our fave EV Ambassador, Chelsea Sexton, was in Santa Monica last week for a girly green makeover courtesy of Elle Magazine and Paul Mitchell hair products. The Elle Eco Spa Bus, whose previous life was transporting handicapped patients in Boise, Idaho, was transformed into a gorgeous biodiesel-fueled eco salon in celebration of Elle’s 3rd annual May green issue. Traveling to malls throughout Southern California from mid-April to early May, visitors were treated to complimentary mini-makeovers, and eco-friendly goody bags. However, Elle upped the ante, asking every participant to contribute a suggested donation of $10 to the charity American Forests.
Chelsea who self admittedly has recently been “raising Kane and causing trouble” with auto-makers, was whisked on board for a sleek eco-blowout by stylist Carly, from Floyd’s Barber Shop, who explained that all proceeds from the Elle Eco Spa Bus tour supporting American Forests, go to offsetting the co2’s from creating the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Line, by planting new trees. Apparently, they raised approximately $500 each day, which puts the contribution from the tour at approximately $9000. That’s a lot of new trees.
Chelsea, who will not ever even consider hybrids because of fuel consumption, looked ravishing as she departed ready for her upcoming appearance at the Los Angeles Flagship Tesla Showroom opening. Unlike the rest of us, the lucky girl has already gotten to test-drive the Tesla, and apparently, it is the sexiest plug-in she has ever driven. We’re not surprised!
The oh-so self-depreciating star of Who Killed The Electric Car is currently busy with her two non-profits, Plug In America, and “Lightening Rod,” as well as filming a sequel, Who Saved The Electric Car in which she hopes automakers will redeem themselves. In parting, she reminded us all about the power we have as consumers, and to not just vote politically, but also with our dollars. In her case it means not only partaking in green beauty rituals, but also calling carmakers and requesting plug-in autos. Let’s get dialing, America!
