In another attempt to change her image, socialite Paris Hilton is going green to save the environment.
The hotel heiress is planning to replace her gas-guzzling Range Rover SUV with a Ford hybrid, after the car manufacturers gave her an eco-friendly vehicle as a gift.
"I'm getting a car from Ford, a hybrid one. They gave me one. So, I think driving hybrid cars is the new way to go, and recycling," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
The Simple Life star, who recently spent 23 days in jail for driving with a suspended licence, is also considering using her MySpace page to persuade fans to go green.
"On my MySpace, I'm going to start writing about ways kids can help save the world, because anyone can do it, no matter how old you are or where you're from. I just want this world to be a better place for my grandchildren," she said.
"I'm scared with what's going on in the environment, so I hope people will help and make a difference. Everyone can," she added.
