Alam niyo ba na ang English supermodel at actress na Lily Cole, bukod sa magaling na mag-aaral sa larangan ng Kasaysayan (History) at Sining (Art), ay isa ring environmentalist? Bagama’t si Cole ay isa sa 100 pinakamayamang babae sa United Kingdom, ang lagi niyang dalang bag ay ang eco-friendly Anya Hindmarch handbag na may slogan “I’m Not A Plastic Bag.” Si Cole rin ang sumulat ng foreword para sa aklat ni Tamsin Blanchard’s Green Is The New Black (2007), isang panuntunan o guide sa pagiging fashionable habang nanatiling eco-friendly. May kaugnayan din siya sa pagtatatag ng isang environmentally friendly na pagawaan ng mga kasuutan, ang North Circular, kung saan ang limang porsyento ng kinikita niya at ng kumpaniya ay iniaambag niya bilang donasyon sa Environmental Justice Foundation.
