Gisele's Brand New Green Mansion

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

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?

    Selling your huge house for someone else to live in doesn’t change the fact that there is a huge house there. It’s like when people trade in their suburban for someone else to drive.. not really making too much of a difference unless you actually destroy the beast lol It’s good though that she is making an effort to make the house as eco-friendly as she can. I suppose it would be the next best thing to tearing it down.

    I applaud their efforts at creating a ‘green’ home. But long term sustainability is about right-sizing our lives, not bigger is better.

    Definitely an eco win. If more wealthy people would build eco-friendly homes, the technology would advance, become less expensive, and allow it to spread to lower end homes. Imagine a huge home with little outside energy use. Then imagine a whole neighborhood of smaller homes, with NO outside energy use.

Stop calling vegan food “cruelty-free”

Many vegans proudly proclaim that their food is “cruelty-free” as though issues of justice and injustice begin and end with our use of nonhuman animals.

My Parents Forced Veganism on Me

If vegan parents don’t “force” their vegan values and beliefs on their children, society won’t hesitate to “force” standard American values instead.
