So who’s trending on Facebook? None other than Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard classmate, Natalie Portman.
Sassy and sophisticated, Portman has captured the hearts of her fans, and has won her stripes as GreenCupboards.com’s sustainable “It girl”.
So what’s new for Portman? Have you seen her engagement ring? Unlike most celebrity bling, Portman’s ring is as sustainable as glamour can get. Instead of sporting a memorable 6 carrot pink diamond ring such as the one Ben Affleck purchased for Jennifer Lopez, Portman wears a tasteful vintage design made with recycled metals and diamonds from conflict free mines. The four carat diamond center stone is an antique.
So what made Portman’s fiancé and former Black Swan co-star, Benjamin Millepied, splurge for a specially designed ring? A vegetarian since childhood, Portman has used her Ivy League education and super star status to support causes to stop the destruction of animal habitats by deforestation, world poverty, and the use of animal materials in clothing and shoes. Portman even came out with her own Vegan shoe company.
With the arrival of the couple’s new baby, Aleph, GreenCupboards.com will be on the watch for Portman’s baby fashion advice.
Why is this green?
Natalie Portman is doing more than just throwing money at ecological issues. She’s working to educate others and living by example.
