Whether we like it or not, celebrities can influence a lot of people. From the brands we buy to the politics we embrace, there is a reason why organizations choose celebrities as their spokesperson. .
Greta Thunberg, leading Swedish environmental activist, told Vogue Scandinavia,“When one person starts doing something that has a snowball effect and spreads to people around them and they start thinking why is that person doing that, it can plant a seed in that person’s mind and it can grow over time, and that is something I think we underestimate.”
Celebrity influence matters, which is why when celebrities use their influence for environmental causes, it can have a snowball effect that inspires the masses to do their part.
These are our five favorite celebrities including CEOs, women’s rights activists and environmentalists who have slayed the green carpet by promoting a more moral way of life and the use of ethical products.

Billie Eilish is a literal eco-savior and her current tour is a prime example. The seven-time Grammy award-winning musician is presenting a six-day event before her gigs, titled “Overheated” (after the song off her new album, Happier than Ever) during the course of her tour in London at the O2 arena on June 10-12, 16, and 24-25.
Eilish has long advocated for a slower pace of fashion. In a recent red carpet interview, the singer explained why she wore an upcycled Gucci gown to the 2022 Met Gala by saying, “We didn’t have to trash a bunch of stuff. Everything was there all along. The goal was to minimize my impact on the environment.

Following her successful lobbying of Oscar de la Renta to end its use of fur in its designs, she wore one of the designer’s gowns to the 2021 Met Gala. She also worked with Nike to develop a collection of eco-friendly athletic shoes.
The purpose of these sweltering gatherings is to have singers, activists, and fashion experts talk about the planet’s state, how to deal with climate change concerns, and how to make a difference through the power of one’s voice.
In addition to a showing of her new documentary, Overheated, which features speakers like Vivienne Westwood, the event will feature guest speakers such musician Ellie Goulding and climate activist Tori Tsui. Eilish and her brother, Finneas, made a 40-minute documentary. Not only can fans educate themselves about our planet, but they can also stay entertained with a well-loved eco celebrity.
To sum up, adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle is all about taking baby steps at a time, thus it’s crucial to remember that it’s rather important not to be harsh on yourself but try to keep it simple, be more prudent and think about the environment as much as possible.
