Green with Tiffany — October 18, 2014

Tiffany Paige: We’re here with actress Jorja Fox from CSI. What brings you here tonight?

Jorja Fox: I’m very excited about this event, it’s an event very close to my heart. I’m representing Artists & Athletes tonight. I’m on the advisory board and we’re a collective of artists and athletes that connect with Washington DC on issues that are close to everybody. Kind of create a dialogue between the different camps and bring us together to get things that we care about on the floor and up for conversation.

TP: That’s so important. Are you an athlete yourself?

JF: I’m a surfer. I don’t know if that really counts.

TP: Of course that counts. […] Do you have a green tip? Is there something that you could tell our viewers?

JF: Okay, well I’m going out on the edge here, but I’d like to take “Meatless Mondays” into three more days a week. Probably the single-handed biggest thing that any individual can do to really help the environment is to eat vegetarian. And maybe not all the time, but even just more would make a huge difference.

TP: That is a good one. So are you a vegetarian?

JF: I am, yes.

TP: How long have you been a vegetarian?

JF: Like … twenty-two years?

TP: Wow!

JF: Yeah like that. You know, for me it’s something I don’t even think about anymore. It’s just… it’s not complicated, it’s not hard. […] In terms of raising cattle and raising food, the water that gets used and the land that gets sort of clear-cut to make that happen… you don’t think about that when- I mean, why would we?

TP: I don’t think people put faces to their food. How that works, where their food comes from. That is a great one, thank you for that tip.

JF: Thanks Tiffany.

TP: Have a great night.

JF: Alright, you too.
