Khloe Kardashian shares video of daughter True, 3, playing with balloons after star was slammed for 'wasting plastic'
KHLOE Kardashian shared a video on her Instagram Stories of her daughter True playing with balloons after the star was slammed for 'wasting plastic.'
The reality star posted the video of dozens of balloons and streamers lining the ceiling of her bedroom with the caption: "Magic."
The video also featured Khloe's three-year-old daughter, True, jumping on the bed and playing with the festive décor.
Earlier this month, Khloe, 36, took to her Instagram Stories to call out people who pour water from their single-use bottles into reusable ones.
"There's something that irks me is that I see people taking water bottles and they're just pouring it into the gallon size reusable plastic bottle so they can consume their water for the day," she said.
"That defeats the purpose because those water bottle are just going to go into a landfill somewhere and potentially cause you know pollution."
She suggested that fans could buy filtration systems to attach to sinks or to put in their fridge to avoid single-use plastic bottles.
"That is a lot smarter than buying cases of waters. If you're going to be using reusable jugs like I am, and if not every day… I get it. Sometimes we need to grab a water bottle," the KUWTK star said.
"I'm not saying that or judging that, I'm just saying that I don't know why we're pouring water bottles and using… just to throw that plastic away for these jugs.
"So, I'm turning into Kourtney, but let's try to save the environment for the kids."
Khloe's critics flocked to Twitter to point out the times she has filled her home with hundreds of plastic balloons for various events.
"I'm sorry Khloe. What were you saying about single use plastics irking you????" one wrote, while sharing an example of the star's own waste.
"Khloe is really out here trying to shame her followers for using single use water bottles, when every party they throw looks like this. This girl is too much," another wrote, while sharing photos of Khloe's balloon displays.
"If there was a hypocrite of the CENTURY award Khloe would win by a landslideeeee."
A third wrote, "Just curious, what kind of environmental impact does this have," alongside a compilation of Khloe traveling by private jet.
Private jet passengers account for 10 times as many greenhouse gas emissions as a commercial traveler and 150 times more than people who use trains, a 2019 study revealed.
Back in April, Khloe sparked backlash after sharing photos from True's third birthday party, in which Kylie Jenner's house was decked out with masses and masses of plastic balloons.
The balloons, ranging in size, shape and color, filled the entryway and stairs of Kylie's house, as well as surrounding the tables and the bouncy castle outside.
Her environmentally-conscious critics called her out for creating so much "waste" from one party.
Earlier this week, the mom of one celebrated her 37th birthday with a much more laidback celebration than previous years of over-the-top lavish parties.
The reality star spent the evening with her sisters Kourtney and Kylie, and best friends Malika and Khadijah.
The TV personality wore a "birthday girl" party tiara and indulged in cake as she thanked Kylie, 23, for hosting the group.
"My pajama birthday! Thank you @kyliejenner for everything, always!!" she wrote on her Instagram stories.
