An Eco-Win For Hollywood

ellenpagex-largeEllen Page became a household name after 2007’s indie hit Juno, but all the fame and fortune was a lot for Page to handle. Unlike many young stars who fall victim to a destructive lifestyle, Page took the eco-friendly route instead:

“I went to Oregon to study permaculture and lived in an eco-village for a month outside Eugene. It’s called Lost Valley. It was amazing and exactly what I needed, because there had been the Juno thing, where you’re getting a lot of attention,” Page says. “You’re learning how to live in a holistic way with the cycles of the Earth. At one point I was digging goat (manure) and putting it into a wheelbarrow, and while shoveling it, I just went, ‘Oh, my God, this is exactly what I want to be doing right now.’ ”

Take a look at Lost Valley’s site and learn about how you can get involved! Look for Ellen Page in her new film Whip It! hitting theaters this Friday.
