Styler branded a hypocrite after using private jet.
Trudie Styler has been accused of hypocrisy after she hired a private jet to fly her and a group of stylists from New York to a party in Washington D.C.
Her entourage of eight, which included her New York hairstylist Antonio Prieto, accompanied her on the gas-guzzling journey to help her prepare for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Critics are outraged at her decision to fly the short distance between the two cities, particularly when she is such a vocal supporter for the environment. Insiders stress that she could have taken the shuttle or the energy-saving Amtrak train.
Trudie, wife of rocker Sting, co-founded the Rainforest Foundation 20 years ago to champion green issues and speak out about the horrors destroying the environment.
Despite being big proponents of saving the rainforests this is not the first time Styler and Sting have been criticised for their ‘green-less’ actions. It was reported last year that ageing rocker Sting only donated 41% of the proceeds for his 2006 Rainforest Foundation concert. The average is usually 75%.
The pair have also been blasted for having a carbon footprint estimated at 30 times that of the average UK resident.
