Green Hypocrisy..

"Green Superhero" model Gisele Bundchen

Gisele Bundchen named best green celebrity

NY Daily NewsGisele Bündchen was named Best Green International Celebrity at this year’s Green Awards at a ceremony at the National History Museum in London on November 24.
The 31-year-old Brazilian supermodel, who has starred in campaigns for labels such as Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Versace, is also involved in numerous environmental campaigns.
She became a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) in 2009 and has supported numerous environmental initiatives such as the Drop of Water Movement (Movimento Gota D’Agua), which aims to prevent the construction of the Bel Monte Dam in Brazil, a dam which campaigners claim will destroy large swathes of the Amazonian rainforest.
Gisele commented “I am blessed to have grown up in a family that embraced the importance of nature and community coexisting in harmony. My career in the public eye has given me the opportunity to raise awareness about important socio-environmental causes in hopes of promoting a more conscious relationship with our environment.”

An "environmentally conscious" 22,000 sq ft mansion


And how conscious is she of her relationship with the environment?  So much so that she and her husband Tom Brady, New England Patriots’ quarterback, are building a $20 million, 22,000 square foot mansion in California. It boasts an elevator, lagoon-shaped pool, wine cellar, parking for six cars, weights room and a covered bridge connecting two buildings.
This is the same person who suggests on her website that one way to cut down on energy is to take stairs. “In addition to exercising, you save the electric power of the elevators,” she says. But of course it is different if you have your own elevator in your home.
I don’t mind the fact that she is part of the 1% and wants to build a lavish home.  What I do mind is the hypocrisy of being an advocate for the environment while at the same time practicing a different tone.
Remember, do as I say, not as I do.

  2. Communism like Cancer is malignant.

     
  3. They didn’t get enough with Al “Captain Planet” Gore?

     
  4. You can buy nose/boob jobs…intelligence, not so much 🙂

     
  5. what do you do for the planet? what do you do for others? Please, give me a break. Do something instead of critisiging.

     
    • Seeing how the IP address of “Tati” and “Anonymous” is in Rio Grande do Sulis — a place on the eastern coast of South America, between Brazil and Uruguay — I have to ask:
      Is that you, Giselle?

       
  6. I hate those kind of people that lose their time on internet to say shit about other instead of taking an action. Can it be more hypocrite than that??

     
    • You are banned for violating this blog’s language policy with your monosyllabic word for excrement. You are also banned because of your deception — pretending to be two different commenters “Tati” and “Anonymous.”
      I’ve been a recycler since my college days, before it became fashionable, hauling my metals and paper to the city’s recycling plants miles away from my home. I am ashamed for you calling yourself a “greenie.”

       
  7. I think it’s funny when people come on the itnernet and leave comments with different names yet have the same email/IP address.
    I hate those kind of people that lose their time by telling others what to do, without any knowledge of what they already do. Can it be more hypocritical than that?
