For most of us, just raising a child without screwing them up is a difficult enough task. Ugly Betty‘s Ana Ortiz, on the other hand, wants to throw add another degree of difficulty. She says that her daughter, who is due at the end of July, will be immersed in the Jedi ways of greenness.
“My daughter’s just going to be really hip! My goal is to be as eco-conscious as possible: There’s so much out there for parents who want to do that. I plan to keep her eco-friendly as she gets older.
I think we all sort of have to do it. I’m lucky enough to be able to do it, so we just have to drive the market toward it so it becomes more possible to make and more accessible to consumers.
People will realize how much easier and better it is to be local and organic. But it’s just not available to everyone right now.”
Hey, even First Lady Michelle Obama is backing the benefits of organic fruits and vegetables these days, so I guess it’s not surprising that celebrity moms are among those joining the movement.
Do you think reducing your carbon baby-print will be the next celebrity parenting trend? If you really want to change the world, you’ve got to start with the children, right?
More importantly, do you think that Ana will be able to stick to it? She has high hopes now, but with this being her first child and all, does she really know what she’s committing to here?
