Celebs are Serious about Having Eco-friendly Houses and These Stars Lead the Way
Nowadays, people are very aware of the increased need to save our planet and environment. We can start at home, incorporating small, meaningful changes to save the only planet we share. People adopt these changes by making their house eco-friendly and living green. Even celebrities have caught up with this trend. When our favorite stars do the right thing and contribute towards saving nature, it does inspire us. A number of Hollywood stars have already initiated several lifestyle changes, bought electric cars to save fuel, turned vegan, and have even put up solar panels on the roofs of their homes. Here are a few celebrities passionate about green homes to inspire you:
The Pretty Woman actress Julia Roberts, has millions of fans who love her inspiring performances on screen. Now, we love her all the more because of her dedication to making changes to her house to ensure that it is more eco-friendly. The 51-year-old actress bought this house across the street from her $9.5-million Malibu house which means she has one huge compound now. Along with her husband, she invested $20 million to build greenhouses, a skate park, a yurt, vegetable patches, and a mini-soccer field. They also put in solar panels on their roofs to make the house a little more greener. Roberts, Danny Moder her husband, and their three children welcome other kids from the community to come over and have fun in their compound. We are definitely in love with this pretty woman with a very generous heart.
One would assume that the actress who thought up the wholesome idea of a Honest Company and then transformed it into a billion-dollar business, would definitely be environmentally conscious. And Jessica Alba doesn’t disappoint. Her former Beverly Hills home is listed in the market for $6.2 million, but the actress managed to do a great job to make it more eco-friendly. She also changed her lifestyle habits: she took shorter showers, and changed her water bottle into a non-disposable one. She made sure her house remained sunny, airy, and had plenty of natural light. This eliminated the need to switch on lights during the day and kept the house warm during winter days.
This actress is perhaps best known for her lead character in 1995’s Clueless, but Alicia Silverstone has more than just a clue when it comes to being environment friendly. She is an animal rights activist and is an unabashed environmental activist. She shares her home in Los Angeles with her husband and makes use of rooftop solar panels, very energy-efficient appliances, used recycled materials throughout and invested in a highly efficient heating & cooling system. She proudly says that everything they brought into this house is environmentally sound.
Lisa Ling, the longtime host of CNN’s This Is Life, lives in a lovely eco-friendly home in Santa Monica along with her oncologist husband. After buying this house long ago, they decided to tear it down and re-build it from scratch which took thirty-six months! The four-bedroom home is as green as it can get and very eco-friendly and even has a solar-powered generator! True to their roots, they have included some Asian-inspired decorations, making it green and chic!
Though most regular folk cannot easily afford solar panels, there are many other ways to contribute in, and saving the environment. Start right now!
