So not everyone is so green....

Thandie's Celeb Snub

Thandie Newton is on a quest to turn Celebville into a much greener place...
But it's turning out to be a mission impossible for poor old Thand.
The Brit actress teamed up with Greenpeace and penned some letters to her A-lister chums - in an attempt to persuade them to drive environmentally friendly cars.
Some of those who had a letter drop on their mat included Madonna, Jack Nicholson, Jamie Oliver, Chris Martin, Robin Williams, Ozzy Osbourne, David Beckham, Sir Sean Connery, Michael Jackson and Tom Cruise.
And what happened next?
"I didn't get one letter back," Thandie told the Daily Express.
"I wasn't judgmental. It was like, 'In case you didn't know here are some facts about the environment and some reasons why it turns out 4x4s aren't that great to have in the city.'"
But Thand hasn't taken this snub to heart and is still determined to convert celebs across the land.
She's already tackled talk show host Oprah Winfrey.
"I was staying with Oprah recently and I suggested that she switches her whole fleet of cars.
"I really hope she does. It would do so much good."
Over to you Oprah.
