Today is an exciting day! Here at Ecorazzi we’re always trying to find clever new ways to celebrate the prodigiously awesome deeds done by today’s greenest A, B, C, D and even sometimes E-list celebrities. So in the spirit of celebration we’d like to introduce (drum roll please) the brand new….ECORAZZI BIRTHDAY SALUTE!
The title pretty much explains it all, but in case you’re still shaking your head with confusion I’ll explain further. Everyone deserves a happy birthday, and what could be happier than an Ecorazzi hip, hip hooray. Each time one those good-hearted, green-living, animal-loving, famous faces gets a year older, we’ll toast their green achievements with this special new feature.
Up first: Stephen Colbert and Bea Arthur! True, their birthdays were yesterday, but this is a brand new feature, people…give us a break!
Yesteday Stephen Colbert celebrated a jolly 44 years of charitable wonderfulness. Stephen’s been featured on Ecorazzi before for his work in raising $171,000 for charity with his broken wrist and raising an additional $50,605 on eBay for Save The Children. We think Stephen’s totally rad and look forward to covering all his future charitable achievements.
The second star we’d like to toast has never been featured on the Razz, but she certainly deserves a salute. Everybody give it up for Bea Arthur who turned eighty-frigin-six yesterday. Bea has spent much of her time as an animal advocate working with PETA and other animal rights organizations. A while back she told The Pet Press, “I’ve always been very intolerant of animal abuse. I don’t know exactly when I started being so aware- it was at a very early age. I work very heavily with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. I really wonder about my sanity sometimes, because I will never go to Spain… I will never give them a f–king nickel because of the bullfights. To me it’s like abusing a child.”
We did a little digging and found this PETA video from back in the day. So grab some vegan birthday day, sit back and watch Bea talk about pee. No…I’m not even joking! HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU GUYS
