During college, I went through an ill-advised phase during which I tacked photos of supermodels I was never, ever going to look like on my dorm-room walls. One of my twiggy idols was Shalom Harlow, whom I loved because she a) really knew how to work the red lipstick and b) seemed like the least approachable person on the planet.

No longer. This year, not only did she show up on the cover of Domino‘s Green Issue, she also (as Amanda Griscom Little reported) popped up at the Sundance Channel’s Green Party, spouting nuggets of folksy green wisdom, like this one:

We have a flushing system at our house where we only flush if it’s number two.

Goodbye untouchable supermodel. Hellloooooo, environmentally astute woman of the people!

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
