Rachelle Lefevre is a Canadian actress who was born in Montreal on February 1, 1979. She is perhaps best known for her role of Victoria in the 2008 film Twilight. Lefevre is a member of the Environmental Media Association's Young Hollywood Board.
Lefevre's involvement with the Environmental Media Association placed her in the midst of a scandal. In 2010, she attended EMA's event "Gettin' Your Garden On" at Venice Senior High School's organic garden, sponsored by Yes to Carrots and Kellogg Garden Products. While Kellogg Garden Products sells some organic soil amendments, the majority of its business is selling sewage sludge-based composts, which are illegal to use in organic farms and gardens. In the picture at left, you can see a bag of Kellogg's Amend behind Lefevre. For more on this controversy, see the article on the Environmental Media Association.
