Some might say the words mansion and green don’t even live in the same hemisphere, but if you’re an eco-conscious celebrity, you do your best to make the two opposing ideas fit together.
Gisele has certainly done what she can to make her newly built and almost finished 22,000 square foot dream home with husband Tom Brady into an eco-friendly dwelling.
The supermodel told the world that she took the following steps to ensure as small a footprint as the big house would allow. According to Inside Track, they utilized solar energy, energy-saving lighting, implemented rainwater recovery systems, waste reduction and recycling programs, and brought in energy-efficient appliances and sustainable building materials.
The new home has eight bedrooms, a six car garage, a swimming pool with a spa, weight room, wine cellar, elevator, butler’s room, wine bar and gallery.
What do you think? Eco win? Or, maybe she should just downsize like Ellen even with all the efforts towards sustainability?
