School Of Cool #126: How to make the planet Happy like Leona Lewis

on in Entertainment

Because acting like a celeb doesn’t have to cost the Earth… 

Leona LewisSo, who is she?
We’re sure you already know who Leona Lewis is but when we realised she’d never been in our School Of Cool we had to include her pronto. Just in case you don’t recognise her, she’s a British singer and songwriter who won the third season of the UK The X Factor. Since then she’s sold over 20 million records worldwide (which is more than any other contestant from the show ever).

Impressive. What else do I need to know?
Did you know that before Leona Lewis made her millions she worked at Pizza Hut? And now she’s sold more top 5 hit singles than any other UK female solo artist EVER. She’s come a long way eh?

So, he’s a cool guy, but why is he a Global Cool guy?
Leona Lewis is more than just a pretty girl with an awesome voice. The X Factor winner has been an animal activist and a vegetarian for ages. She’s published her very own recipe for Meat Free Mondays (yay).

The pretty brunette also launched a Limited Edition line with The Body Shop earlier this year. The range was called Cruelty Free Beauty and included makeup such as lip gloss and perfume. All of the products were kind to the planet and to animals alike. She even once launched a competition for unknown designers to design ethical outfits to for her to wear on stage.

For all of the above and also for making the hairs on our arms stand on end every time you sing, Leona Lewis, Take A Bow!

Here’s Leona Lewis with Run to get your hairs standing up too…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/
Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
