Bette Midler Quits Touring For The Sake Of The Planet

Bette Midler has been a force of green over the past year –her involvement in NYC’s initiative to plant one million trees, her New York Restoration Project to save 57 community gardens, and the 2008 recipient of the Rachel Carson award from the Audubon Society Women in Conservation organization. She hilariously quipped upon accepting the honor, “I love nature, in spite of what it did to me.”

Now, Midler is taking her affection for the planet one step further by announcing an end to her touring days. “Over the years, the number of trucks that I have behind me has grown exponentially and I don’t really like that, I don’t like wasting the gas,” she recently told Matt Smith of Sky News. “Fourteen trucks, that’s a lot of gas. So I decided I’d stay put for a while,” she added.

Midler will instead be throwing down roots in Las Vegas where she’ll be paid a cool $13 million to have folks come to her. She also rambled off an impressive list of green credentials — such as she owns a Smart car, a hybrid, composts, recycles and “is wearing clothing from 50 years ago.” Grin.
