Australian model/eco-activist Miranda Kerr has hit the front cover Rolling Stone’s new green issue. The 26-year-old told News.com.au that she decided to go au naturel for the cover to raise awareness of the environment, specifically koalas. Which, coincidentally, is also on my list of things to do before I die. From the article,
“I feel strongly about the need to protect our natural environment because it supports our life – it really is that simple,” Kerr said. The day-long shoot also included a real koala named Koral, as Kerr is the face of the Australian Koala Foundation’s No Tree, No Me campaign. The campaign aims to protect koalas’ natural habitat, hence Kerr’s only prop for the shoot is a chain locking her to a tree. “It’s a sad thing – there are only about 100,000 koalas left in Australia,” Kerr said. “Something like 80 per cent of the koalas’ habitat has been destroyed since Europeans arrived in Australia.”
Look for Rolling Stone’s first-ever green issue to hit this month.
