Bo's A TreeHugger: Soap Star Peter Reckell, the Eco-Celeb
Well folks, this may be funny to some of you - but for schoolgirls like me who spent lazy summer days watching sands through the hourglass - my discovery that "Bo Brady" (as in "Bo & Hope" on Days of Our Lives) is a major TreeHugger counts as pretty big news. Peter Reckell (his real name) lives in a solar-powered casa that generates enough juice to sell power back to the utility company. Not only does he make the energy, he keeps his home efficient with insulation made of recycled denim. He's also under pedal-power during his commute to the set, though he did request a Bio-Beetle for his trip to the Daytime Emmy awards this spring. Fellow fans can check out his simple but straightforward website to see what he's got to say about his eco-passions. I always knew Bo was a stand-up guy, no matter what nonsense Stefano had up his dastardly sleeve.
