We knew Pamela Anderson was starting development of some eco-friendly townhouses in her native Canada, but a major city like Abu Dhabi? Word is the former Baywatch star fell in love with the city (the second largest in the United Arab Emirates) after visiting there on a recent trip with the Make A Wish Foundation. Apparently, the ruling family also sent warm fuzzies and requested that Anderson sign up to help them build a green hotel.
“I’m building a hotel there. It is environmentally friendly. I went there with the Make a Wish Foundation and met some great people there. The royal family was really friendly,” Anderson said. “It’s built with no fossil fuel at all….in Abu Dhabi – where they have all that oil.” Indeed.
Last March, it was announced that actor Brad Pitt would be joining a team of design consultants for a brand-new environmentally friendly green hotel and resort in Dubai. It kind of made sense — the guy is passionate about archietecture, contributed a great amount effort and time to the green rebuilding of New Orelans’ lower 9th ward, and is really interested in low-impact development.
But Anderson? Really?
Hey, whatever works to get more green, sustainble projects off the ground. I wonder if the restaurants will all be vegetarian…
