Eco-Beat, 5/6

Is Oprah trying to pick a fight with PETA? Will this battle eventually lead to the apocalypse? What’s in your shampoo? Why is Leonardo DiCaprio no longer fit to serve as an environment advocate? Today’s Eco-Beat has the scoop on all of the latest green news and tips.

Oprah Gives Away Free KFC
Oprah has teamed up with the colonel to give everyone in the US a chance to try KFC’s latest chicken-shaped meat pieces. If you’ve paid any attention to PETA over the last couple of years, you know exactly how much they love KFC. This isn’t going to be pretty.
How’d You Like $4,500 for Your Hoopty?
A “cash for clunkers” plan is inching its way through congress right now that could pay you up to $4,500 to trade in your old gas guzzler for a leaner greener model. Is congress is in the mood to give away more money? We’ll have to wait and see.
DiCaprio’s Egregious Eco-Blunder
For a celebrity activist, one tiny mistake can ruin your reputation in the blink of an eye. When he thought no one was looking, Leonardo DiCaprio asked a waiter for a straw at an NRDC event. The waiter politely informed him that it was a plastic-free event. Oh snap!
Mobsters Breaking into Wind Power
Officials in Sicily are investigating allegations that organized crime is trying to force their way into Italy’s lucrative wind power industry. Imagine submitting a bid on a wind power contract and waking up the next day with a horse head in bed with you.
How Green is That Herbal Shampoo?
Ever wonder just exactly what goes into that delicious-smelling herbal shampoo? If it’s not on this list, you may be literally bathing in all kinds of nasty parabens and phthalates. Not such a refreshing thought, huh?
