Meryl Streep is getting props over at the Huffington Post for her green activism:
The actress Meryl Streep melted audiences everywhere (like chocolate in a bain marie) with her Oscar-nominated performance in Julie & Julia, the quirky and wonderful movie about Julia Child and a young woman who seeks to replicate her cooking success.
I’m certainly not a film critic but I believe that no one can transform herself into a character like Meryl. I am an environmentalist, though, and I can testify to another role that Meryl has held with great passion — environmental health activist. Meryl has been a transformative leader in the environmental health and green consumer movements for over 20 years. Early on, she was able to connect the dots for people, showing how seemingly abstract environmental issues touched us personally, from the food we fed our kids to the everyday products we brought into our homes. And as an activist mom, she became a role model, encouraging us all to be vigilant in the supermarket aisles and to vote with our dollars for the safest products.
