Jennifer Love Hewitt

The list of young green starlets in Hollywood continues to grow with the additions of actresses like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freida Pinto and Annalynne McCord.

Joining the ranks of Jessica Alba, Amy Smart and Gisele Bundchen, just to name a few, these eco gals of Hollywood each recently spoke out about the contributions they are making to reduce their impact on the environment.

“I’ve been recycling,” Hewitt recently told E! Online. “And I’ve been trying to buy the cloth cover for my dry cleaning so they don’t use the plastic, which is really good and it doesn’t bring toxins into your home.”

Pinto talked about her conscious effort to reduce her use of plastics, stating, “I just avoid it. I carry water in a glass bottle instead of buying plastic bottles of water.”

McCord discussed what she has learned from her recent time in Canada. “I’ve been in Vancouver for the last couple of weeks and they put our recycling to shame. They have videos showing you how for tourists like me,” she continued. “They have the recycle bin for bottles, cans, plastics and aluminum. Then they have the organics where you actually throw the food away. Then they have the paper recyclables…I’m going to try and be a catalyst for that here in the U.S.”

Another great green trend sweeping more and more young celebrities is reduce their carbon footprint by going vegan.

Actress Renee Olstead was quoted at “The Avengers” premiere saying she has recently removed dairy and meat from her diet and feels great. ”Vegan is the easiest way to go green,” says Olstead.

She is not alone. With the likes of Lea Michele, Carrie Underwood and Abbie Cornish all speaking out about their vegan lifestyles, this is a diet choice that is well on the rise.
