NEWS: CityHippy Clooney?

Sometimes celebs just go and use their fame for good and we love it when they do.

George Clooney, who now drives a zero-emissions electric car, makes up one very handsome part of the now nicknamed 'Green Team'.

The eco-fighting celebs, pictured on the cover of the first 'green issue' of Vanity fair, also include Al Gore, Julia Roberts and Robert F Kennedy Jnr!

Al Gore has made a climate change documentary, Robert F Kennedy Jnr is the host of a radio programme about environmental issues and Julia Roberts has flicked the green switch in her life - for the sake of her children. All very commendable indeed.

Those four celebs are just a few of those green folks mentioned in the issue. It makes for an impressive list and includes our very own number one green blogger, Graham Hill of Treehugger. Take a bow Graham.

Sadly, and somewhat scandalously to some, Vanity Fair did not manage to get the issue printed on recycled paper due to technical hitches but this issue bigs up being green so much and that is worth a serious pat on the back...nice one Vanity Fair.

All good news though as getting green issues into the media is an achievement in itself.

Green hugs
