Mariah Carey labelled un-green on Earth Day

April 22, 2009

mariah-careyIn honor of Earth Day on Wednesday, environmental Web site has named singer Mariah Carey the “least green celebrity.” What did Carey do to deserve the dis? She was quoted as saying that she flies her personal trainer from St. Barts in the Caribbean to New York to keep her on a workout regimen.

The AOL-owned created the “least green” celebrity list in cooperation with social networking site, based on an online poll.

A spokeswoman for Carey was not available.

While Carey was voted least green by 35 percent of respondents, another 27 percent said actor John Travolta was Hollywood’s worst environmental offender for his use of private jets, which said are responsible for 800 tons of carbon emissions per year.

Who is Hollywood’s greenest celebrity? Thirty-six percent of the poll’sleonardo-dicaprio respondents said actor and longtime environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio. He topped the list, followed by U2 frontman Bono and actor Ed Begley Jr., the former “St. Elsewhere” star who has been known to sell his own green cleaning spray at the farmers market on weekends.

It’s a green world out there, at least on Earth Day. And with Web sites like trolling through Hollywood, woe to the stars who live it up and forget about their carbon footprint.


shame on Ms Carey and John Travolta of their selfish, and two thumbs up for Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono and Ed Begley Jr for their care on green living


So…is Carey’s trainer flown on a private jet? Because if she’s just buying him a commercial ticket, so what?
