Being blindly jealous of Miranda Kerr makes sense; she’s a stunning Victoria’s Secret model who recently married Orlando Bloom and just gave birth to the couple’s first son. In short, she’s living my fantasy life.
But the truth of the matter is, she’s such a darn fine environmentalist we just can’t say enough good things about her!
The new mom created the KORA Organic Skincare line, which offers natural and organic products, and to raise awareness for the endangered koala population she posed naked while chained to a tree for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. In past interviews, Kerr has admitted that “she’s a hippie at heart” who “works hard to reduce her personal impact.”
Now, apparently on a roll, she’s the first person ever to appear pregnant on the cover of Australian Vogue for this month’s issue. And in a new four-part interview with EcoStiletto, the supermodel opens up about her environmental origins and how she feels about being so green.
When asked about when she first became involved in environmentalism, Kerr said, “I grew up in Gunnedah, a small country town in rural New South Wales Australia, where I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by nature and organically grown produce. This really taught me to be environmentally conscious. I think it is important if we all are aware of the small changes we can make on a daily basis like recycling, using energy efficient light bulbs, eating and using organic products, taking shorter showers, etc.”
Then the interviewer asked Kerr if she could make any green change in her life, what it would be, to which the model responded, “Living in a solar powered house with a veg patch out [in] the back.”
How you are raised can definitely help shape what kind of a person you turn into, so take note new parents! I’m sure Kerr and Bloom will be instilling the impact of eco-friendly behaviors on their newborn.
We will keep you posted as parts 2,3, and 4 come out on EcoStilleto’s website.
