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. But I feel very grateful to have so much work, especially with the economy how it is.”

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…

    Sad to say, this isn’t the first time Miranda’s acted very un-green. She used to model for Impulse, the body spray. I know they’ve gotten rid of CFCs but there are still harmful chemicals in aerosol cans. Surely she knew that? Don’t know what Orlando’s doing with her, he needs someone who actually cares about the planet and who isn’t a complete bimbo airhead. Anyone see that Rove interview? How embarrasing for her!

    I’ve followed her career for the past year and a half, at least. Lots and lots of pictures of her out and about but never once have I seen or heard of her on a bicycle. Using cabs, towncars or on the back of a motorcycle, yes, but I really wonder if she even owns a bicycle.

    Maybe she’s eco sensitive in theory but not yet in practice?

    She is a big big liar. Miranda is lying about everything- engagement, relationship, money she is making… Green? She is not green . She is in the airplanes every day- she sad so. Very often in the private , not commercial flights for very few persons. Is it how she is fighting against pollution? Preserving environment? No, she just wants to fit Bloom. She is only in theory green and eco sensitive. She is pretending – eco house, eco children, garden? She just wants more attention and more popularity. Recently is very popular to be green. And to fly every day in the private jet? Hallo????
