Aren’t there better things to do with your money like elevating the health & wellness for all the other people in the world struggling to make it? I understand self care but flaunting excessive wealth & disregard for the environment? No thanks! Take a look at what’s happening around the world! #entitlement.” (sic).
@cruiseactivists posted: “So tone deaf. @gwynethpaltrow is “uncoupled” from reality. 🌎.” (sic).
Others commented on its impact on the environment.
@nataliajanadesign commented: “Shame on you @goop and @gwynethpaltrow !
How can you justify to host a goop event on a cruise ship that burns up to 250 tons of fuel per day ?!?!? You clearly proofed is all wrong to be all so conscious. So disappointing 😔😔😔😔😔.” (sic).
@yogawithmagdalena commented Cruising ships are the biggest polluters ever. How can anyone even think of going on an internal detox while polluting the external environment? @gwynethpaltrow please refrain from ever advocating any environmental issues again.” (sic).
