Megan Fox Urged To Set Better Green Example
The Transformers beauty, 23, admitted last week that she insists on keeping her home well-lit to avoid returning to a dark, empty place.
She said, "I've been afraid of the dark my whole life. If I go into my house at night and the lights have been turned off... I have to run from the door to the light switch to turn it on... I'm just afraid of what I can't see."
But Fox's comments have prompted campaigners at non-profit organization Do Something to call on the actress to set a better example to her young fans and be more environmentally friendly.
A representative for Do Something tells WENN: "Everyone's allowed an irrational fear or two, but it's pretty easy to keep your house well-lit without wasting energy. Megan can install a programmable light timer or even some motion-sensor lighting. Coupled with efficient CFL (compact fluorescent light) or LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs, she can really lower her electric bill and reduce her carbon footprint."
Do Something, co-founded by former Melrose Place actor Andrew Shue in 1993, aims to encourage teens to make small changes in their daily lives to make a difference to the world.
