The Green Carpet: Fresh Green Gossip

The Daily Green, a Hearst site that promises to be “the consumer’s guide to the green revolution”, give us The Green Carpet, a celebrity green gossip roundup by Tommi Lewis Tilden. The premiere entry asks the stars about their 4th of July plans and the lead item doesn’t exactly inspire:

Jason Alexander tells The Daily Green that he’s Las Vegas-bound. “The green capital of the world,” he says, “to try and win the big enchilada at the World Series of Poker.” But Jason promises to “leave a zero carbon footprint. And if I win, I’ll donate to some of my favorite green organizations.”

Las Vegas–the eco capital of the world? Something tells us Alexander’s unclear on the concept and we doubt that TGC is going to slap any resource-wasting stars, which, face it, is most of them. Still, the column’s young, so there’s always a chance.

On the other hand, FBLA applauds the mention of Angelina Jolie and her choice of a $26 vintage dress to A Mighty Heart premiere. Remember, the greenest products are the ones that never get made.
