vogue-coverRachel McAdams is one super green gal!

Earlier this month, we told you that McAdams and friends recently redesigned their popular environmental site. We likey! Now the eco chic actress is talking to Vogue about her environmental tendencies. Rachel shared:

“I look at the world through a green lens now, but you can’t make yourself crazy. That feeling of green guilt can be really inhibiting. It’s about a changing mind-set, remembering to turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth.”

The actress goes on to explain that she doesn’t like air conditioning and isn’t a big shopper: “I don’t really desire things. I prefer to spend my money on experiences, on meals or travel.”

We (and Mother Earth) sure hope those meals are plant-based!

How do you go green during the holidays? Got any tips or tricks? Leave a comment below and share away!

    i am sorry but “turn of the water when you brush your teeth” that really qualifies a famous person to be qualified as “green”?
    she prefers spending her money on meals and travelling. Anybody can “hope” she will have plant based diets but i am sure if a famous person isnt clear about that, she might as well gourge herself on meat dishes. I highly doubt if she will be traveling by bicycle or greyhound bus, my bet is it will be more like a plane trip to an exotic place.
    all in all, it gets more crazie everday, more and more famous people taking a free hike on the green wagon and getting aplauded for it, by giving tips like “turn of the water when you brush your teeth”.

      I agree with everything you said, I, too, am sick of statements like this. Now, if they are vegetarian, drive a hybrid and do not wear leather or fur, that is completely different.

        I know it seems shocking to those of us that have been eco-minded for many years…but turning off the water while brushing your teeth (or shaving) is brand new information to a lot of people.
