Porn Stars Offer Advice on Saving the Planet

LOS ANGELES — In honor of Earth Day, public relations company Galaxy Publicity asked several adult performers what they do to help save the planet.

“Who said the adult industry doesn't care?” a Galaxy Publicity rep said. “We heard several great ideas and hopefully these are tips that everybody can apply to their everyday routine.”

“When it rains, I put out four or five watering cans until they fill up, then I keep them inside the garage and water my plants with them over the next few weeks until it rains again,” Natali Demore said. “That way, having plants costs me nothing and no water is wasted from a faucet. I also use only paper bags at the grocery store because paper is a renewable resource, whereas plastic bags require oil to manufacture, and we all know what the price of oil is now days.”

Veronica Rayne said, “I recycle produce when I’m cooking in the kitchen — potato scraps, carrots, lettuce, etc., then use these for a compost heap in the backyard to help with plantings we do around the yard.”

“I try to recycle products around the house,” August said. “I also think a good tip would be to try and use bamboo products, everything from flooring to clothing made from bamboo.”

James Bartholet: “Recycling, of course. Turn off your computer at night. Buy energy saving compact fluorescent light bulbs and appliances. Volunteer for beach clean-up campaigns. Go out and plant a tree — it keeps the planet green, and helps to cut down on green house gases and produces oxygen.”

“Buy a ‘Green Switch’ for your electronics to help save energy,” Dick Chibbles said. It automatically switches off the electronic equipment when not in use.”

“Save on gas by organizing your trips and errands, and limit your car trips,” Jack Vegas said.

“Use your own bag at the grocery store. Lots of grocery companies have bags you can buy really cheap, like Trader Joe’s, and this saves on plastic and paper bags,” Elizabeth Starr said.

“Look into purchasing a hybrid car,” Bethany Sweet said. “The new hybrid models out now look pretty cool and save gas.”

“Get your name removed off junk mail listings to help save paper,” Sasha Hollander said. “One of the companies to contact is 41Pounds.org — they will contact direct marketers for you, to get you off the lists.”

Jon Jon said, “Don’t just throw away your old computer or laptop — donate them. There are companies like Computers For Schools Program that takes them, wipes out the hard drive and recycles them for schools. Computers and laptops that are just thrown away end up in the landfills.”

“Every little bit helps, and if we all try to do at least a few of these tips listed, we can help save the planet,” a Galaxy rep said.
