Oscar winner Cate Blanchett has stopped washing her hair in an effort to do her bit to save the environment and become a green example to her kids.
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 is no longer washing her hair, Blanchett has realised: "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!'"
The Elizabeth star has decided to do as much as she can to save energy after a recent visit to drought-ravaged Lake Samonsvale, north of Brisbane, Australia.
She tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph: "I'm extremely concerned about climate change as a mother, because I want to ensure for my children a very safe and sustainable future.
"It's great to see my children engaged in these things, like when you put the water on when you put the toothbrush under the tap, you turn it off the minute you take it out and you don't let the water run."
The Australian star has also limited her car use and has switched her household power supply to green power.
Oh, she and Sheryl Crow should get together........
My mom and dad conserved water, energy, and paper towels (”turn off that light!” “are you USING all that water you’re letting drip down the drain?” “there’s still plenty of use left in that napkin! Give it to me to wipe down the counter!”) because they were depression-era folks wanting to waste nothing or spend nothing they didn’t have to.
Out of such folks come the up-by-the-bootstraps richer Americans, as mine are now.
Conserving because it is made fashionable by bubble-headed liberals, or wasteful liberals who complain that they need handouts because they don’t consume less... well, ya know, given the choice, I’ll take the former, however ridiculous the spokespeople may be.
(I’m a glass-half-full kind of gal, can you tell? :-)
Her husband would be wise to leave that smelly, control-freak. Yuck!!
The brainwashing begins . . .
So does this mean that now she’ll swim to Hollywood instead of taking jets?
She’s given up eating too.
Why does saving the earth require mental illness?
I love showers. I enjoy the feel of the hot water spraying down on my head and back. It’s better than a Jacuzzi. I shower when I don’t need to just to wake up in the morning.
Take that, greenie wienies!
so we can smell them coming a mile away
Don’t forget!...One sheet per dump!
What a joke...means more water in the shower for me you dipstick actress!
