Head of Environmental Media Association Gets Some UK Love

Even though the press releases section for LA’s Environmental Media Association website is woefully out of date, with the most recent item dating back to 2006, we’ve got some good material for an update. The group’s president Debbie Levin (pictured) has just been anointed “Hollywood’s conscience” by London’s The Observer newspaper.

In its Sunday January 16th Eco Power list of 20 individuals the newspaper feels will be setting 2011′s global environmental agenda, reporter Lucy Siegle taps a number of Yanks including New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and New Orleans rebuilding actor Brad Pitt. Levin took over the reins of the EMA five years ago and knows exactly who she wants to plop in the seats of those red carpet Priuses and Volts:

Levin has her sights trained on young Hollywood: A-listers under 35… EMA events now feature young starlets such as Rosario Dawson, Amy Smart and Olivia Wilde talking about sustainable solutions and EMA programs, including the 16 organic gardens it runs around Los Angeles. Levin’s plans are for more projects, more stars and more green chatter. “We never stop. While you sleep we’re greening the world!” she says.

A far stranger LA kudo goes to Jay Leno, who is dubbed “The Green Guzzler” for his attempts to make sure some of his cars are as environmentally friendly as possible, including one that apparently runs on tequila.
