As environmental issues continue to be high on the agendas of many different celebrities, we see them campaigning, wearing ethically sourced clothing, and generally choosing to live a greener lifestyle.
Some of the rich and famous decide take this one step further and ensure their luxury abodes are as eco as possible, with solar power and sustainable features. We reveal which A-lister homes (past and present) are scoring highly in the eco-friendly stakes.
Julia Roberts’ enormous 6,000 square feet Malibu home may look like that of any A-list celebrity, but as well as it being the epitome of luxury, it is incredibly green. There’s a swimming pool, a tennis court and even a skate park - but it is rumoured the actress spent millions to update her home to be more eco-friendly.
Well, in fact, Julia has two homes on this piece of land as she purchased a neighbouring property back in 2016.
Situated just steps from the beach, the residence features sprawling vegetation, huge greenhouses and solar panels to generate green energy.
Johnny Depp’s property portfolio is enough to keep the Pirates of the Caribbean actor busy. Past and present, he’s owned homes in Hollywood, London and even an entire French village.

He fell in love with the Caribbean while filming the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. When speaking about his island home, Johnny once told Vanity Fair: "I don’t think I’d ever seen any place so pure and beautiful.”
Johnny likes to escape to the island, officially named Little Hall’s Pond Cay, to get away from the spotlight. We can imagine he spends his days soaking up the blissful Caribbean sunshine and swimming in the crystal-clear waters that are teeming with wildlife.
Reports suggest that the island is home to six beaches and there are solar outbuildings to make it eco-friendly. It has also been rumoured by the Huffington Post that Johnny will enlist the help of hydrogen energy expert Mike Strizki to make his home hydro-fuelled.

The lights are even said to reduce jet-lag! But as well as wellness, everything is built with sustainability in mind, using eco materials.
