I have updated our photo gallery with 101 HQ and MQ images of Emmanuelle Chriqui from “The Heart Of The Matter” Cast Celebration that was held in New York City.
Actress and EMA Young Hollywood Board member Emmanuelle Chriqui recently partnered with Green Works to bring awareness to The Reverse Graffiti Project, an epic urban cleaning initiative that reaches beyond the surface. Armed with the plant-based Green Works products, Japanese muralist Mr. Kiji transformed a busy (and very dirty) LA underpass into a beautiful work of art. If Green Works products can erase years of pollution to reveal eye-catching works of art, then imagine what it can do in your home.
Check out the Q&A below with Emmanuelle to learn more about this revolutionary project.
The campaign is all about small, everyday choices making a big impact. What are some of the ways you do this in your day-to-day routine?
I think small changes can be the most realistic because it can ease people in if they are just taking their first steps to be more environmentally conscious. I drive a hybrid car, recycle, take my reusable shopping bags to the store, buy organic and local, avoid using bottled water, among other steps.
The Reverse Graffiti Gallery includes installations from a LA underpass to the Broadway Tunnel in San Francisco; which is your favorite?
I think they are all pretty amazing, and I love the fact that you created art by removing the dirt from the walls in an environmentally sustainable way.
Do you have any tips for people who are wanting to make a change but don’t know where to start?
Everyone should try the things they are comfortable with – and home is a good place to start. We have daily green tips on www.ema-online.org to help get you started.

Emmanuelle Chriqui is one of the celebrities supporting The Reverse Graffiti Project. Check out what the project is about and a video featuring Emmanuelle below!
Reverse graffiti, or “clean tagging,” is a method of creating art by removing dirt and grime from a filthy surface. This unique art form taps into the Green Works mantra that cleaning can be beautiful. Thus, The Reverse Graffiti Gallery was born.
We set out to find a dirty place in L.A. that needed some love. After searching hundreds of blocks, we found the perfect place. And on May 29th, we’ll use Green Works cleaning products to create unique pieces of art.
But we’re not working alone. We’ve found the perfect artist to partner with—a true pioneer of the reverse graffiti method. Together we’re going to turn one grimy alley into an inviting and beautiful place for the community to enjoy.
*NSYNC’s Lance Bass and Entourage’s Emmanuelle Chriqui are in a battle to see who can raise the most money for their favorite charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Colon Cancer Canada. The Power of 2 (www.power-of-2.org), a charity initiative dedicated to unlocking celebrity power for social good,has wrangled the star studded pair to duke it out for their debut American P2 match-up — and there’s a catch, the loser has to perform a crazy stunt.
The Power of 2 allows celebrities to go beyond the red carpet and use social media as a tool to make meaningful social impact and educate their fans. And, the bet will make things very interesting. Fans can donate $2 or more to Emmanuelle and Lance’s favorite charity at www.power-of-2.org as many times as they would like up till midnight on Thursday, June 14 to see who will be crowned the Power of 2 champion.
Oooh! Competition for a good cause? We likey.
Both charities will win, but the celebrity loser will have to cash in during a very public dare. If Emmanuelle wins, Lance will dress up as PooFu the dog (a costume he wore for one of his first jobs in Laurel, Mississippi) and Emmanuelle will walk him through LA’s Runyon Canyon, the area’s most popular hiking and dog walking spot.
“I lost my mother to colon cancer at a very young age and my father continues to battle the disease,” states Emmanuelle. “This is a cause very close to my heart, and it’s a preventable cancer if caught in time. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to promote awareness and take the shame out of getting tested. And this spring I’m looking forward to this Power of 2 competition, earning the most donations and taking Lance on a good long walk.”
But if Lance wins, Emmanuelle will have to hit the stage and sing with Steel Panther at the House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard and face that all too common fear, even for an accomplished actor, singing in public!
“I know Emmanuelle has a real fear of singing in public, so if I’m going to win this Power of 2 wager I want to see her hit the stage,” says Lance. “And this is such a great, and easy, opportunity for all of us to use social media for good. My charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, does more than good. They change the lives of kids and families all over the world, every single day.”
The Power of 2 is win-win-win: Both charities get a big check to support their great work, Emmanuelle and Lance have fun online conversations with their fans and colleagues, and fans get an opportunity to engage and support their favorite celebrity through an important social cause. Get social Twitter @PWROF2 and Facebook That’s the Power of 2.
May the best fundraiser win!
