In past interviews, Miranda Kerr has talked about how “she’s a hippie at heart” that “works hard to reduce her personal impact”. As the girlfriend of eco-warrior Orlando Bloom, Kerr obviously is well-informed on environmental issues and green practices. “I always pull plugs out of the wall when I’m not using appliances, ride my bike everywhere in New York and am passionate about organic food,” she recently told Madison Magazine for their green issue.
So, it’s a bit of a bummer to hear Kerr talking about her jet-setting ways in the latest issue of Page Six Mag. “In the last 22 days I’ve been to eight different countries,” she said regarding her job as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. “Honestly, I’m always on an airplane. I spend a lot of time on beautiful little islands, but generally its one day here and then flying, then one day there, then fly.

I wonder if Kerr is approaching David Beckham’s 250,000 miles in the air record from last year? It’s estimated that this contributed to one of the largest carbon footprints in history.
Like previous interviews, Kerr opens up about an eventual family — and her desire to have it be an eco-friendly affair. “I’ve always wanted kids, so…someday…eventually, yes, it will happen. My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch. When this is all over that’s where I’ll be.”
Hopefully, that happens soon. Till then, here’s to the optimistic thought that VS flies all their models commercial…
