Cate: A green role model. But would you follow her footsteps?

Posted By pinkflats on Aug 8, 2007 at 4:56PM

Cate Blanchett is a beauty and a magnificent actress. She also cares about the world we live in. More reasons to love her, right?

Well according to IDLYITW, Cate's "small action that will make a difference" is not washing her hair:

"The actress admits she has installed timers all around her home to restrict energy levels - and one is even on her shower head. Now she's no longer washing her hair, Blanchett has realized, "I only need to have a two minute shower." She adds, "I went to a website and my husband was laughing at me because a box arrived with 30 timers, and I thought, 'Excellent, stocking fillers!'"

If Cate can go on days without washing her hair, more power to her. And if her husband can go on days cuddling with Cate by the fireplace with smooth jazz music playing in the background while they sip red wine during her "no shower" days, then definitely more power to him.

I honestly can say I wouldn't be able to do what Cate is doing, but how about you? Is this "green" act something you would follow to be a much greener person?
