Mother Nature Network caught up with Mike today at the Valentine Romance Sneak Peek Oscar Suite in West Hollywood and talked to him about his eco-friendly habits as well as his Valentine’s Day plans.
Michael Welch of the Twilight movie series told us that he replaced all the lights in his new apartment with CFLs and has driven the same Prius since 2004. “It’s an older one, so I’m safe,” he noted. Conscious about recycling and conserving water and electricity, he also supports the Los Angeles organization The Tree People and often plants trees in friends’ names as holiday gifts.
He was looking forward to spending Valentine’s Day sharing dinner and a movie and presents with his girlfriend after having to work on the holiday for the past four years. “I’m trying to make up for it this year,” said Welch, who’ll be seen in Twilight: Eclipse this summer. He has the lead in Unrequited, and roles in My Suicide and Lost Dream, due soon on DVD.
