Weeds’ Kevin Nealon, Bonnie Hunt, Peter Krause go green

EARTH DAY 2010

Sure, everyone’s heard the stories about Hollywood sensitive types who talk a great game about preserving the environment – but squander resources at their homes and and stomp carbon footprints all over the globe in their travels. The flap over Laurie David’s being cited last year for violating the Wetlands Protection Act when she added a tennis court with a wood and stone path to her Martha’s Vineyard home comes to mind. Also the fact she was cited in 2005, when she reportedly built a stone fire pit, a barbeque area and a children’s theater stage in a wetlands area without a permit. That’s Laurie David as in the executive producer of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” Laurie David who was on the road with Sheryl Crow, stumping for the environment on Crow’s Stop Global Warming College Tour, Laurie David as in married to Larry “Curb Your Enthusiasm” David. Ouch.

But the fact is, countless celebrities are doing their parts in big and small ways to conserve. For instance:

Peter Krause notes that, “You don’t see as many plastic water bottles around the sound stages, and they recycle scripts and rewrites. I can see a definite change.” Personally, “I’ve had redwoods and maples and cherry trees planted all over my property. Not only because of their beauty, but because trees store more carbon than other plants.”
