There are celebrities who simply put their name and face to green companies and then there are the ones which actually OWN an environmental business.

I always think the Eco-heroes are those who are not celebs and take the time and money to do what is best/right for the world.............not to belittle what these celebs do, but their carbon footprint is likely way above and beyond even the average person in this wasteful country with all their travels, houses, etc.....they all do good, but so do so many others like most of the people commenting on enviro articles here on care2.....

Some talk a good game, and a few celebrities actually do something more than talk. It's easy to own a green car or green house when you are worth multimillions. It's another thing to have the guts to speak truth to power, and a few do just that. George Clooney is more than just "eye candy".

When a celebrity is honest, he or she can make all the change in the world. In the 1980's, if you remember, American recording artists got together and recorded"We are the World:. ;American's "selfless" equivalent to Geldof's Feed the World".
I will never forget Bette Midler's interview after that experience. To of course paraphrase,: everybody drove up in a limo. There was a food spread not to be equaled. Liquor flowed. The entire experience disgusted her, and as she has said, "I wish I was never a part of it."
Of course Midler has gone on, and created the largest clean up of NY's parks and highways that has ever been seen.

I'm thankful for these well known folks to lead by example...and hope many of their peers will be inspired to act with more compassion and connection with the world around them.. George Clooney has been leading the call for truth and right action for a long time....

Julia Roberts ? She is working for L'Oréal so... I don't think she is very eco-friendly at all.
Robert Redford yes, he is an activist I love this actor both idealistic and realistic.
