It can be difficult to separate actors from their most iconic characters. Case in point: Lily Collins, aka Emily Cooper of Emily in Paris.
s saccharine, playful, and fashion-filled series came to us during quarantine, and the collective love of the show's extravagance is clear: when season two premiered last year, Netflix clocked
107.6 million hours
of viewing in its first five days. And though Cooper leans into luxury fashion without much thought into how her purchases impact the planet, Collins pays a bit more attention.
To mark the release of Emily in Paris season 3, we're looking back at Collins' moves in the sustainability sector—from
designer rentals
to vintage hunting to an eco-minded honeymoon.
