Celebrities Go Green (pg. 2)

Green Day

Their band name wasn’t picked with the environment in mind all those years ago, but these veteran rockers are no American idiots when it comes to being green. They've partnered with the Natural Resources Defense Council on a Move America Beyond Oil campaign, and have made a number of YouTube videos supporting environmental protection and smarter energy policies.

George Clooney

This Hollywood heavyweight not only earned an Oscar last year but also graced the cover of Vanity Fair's first green issue. In association with his award-winning role in Syriana, Clooney launched Oil Change, a campaign to end America's dependence on oil. To drive the point home, George can be seen out and about with his eco-friendly Tango electric car.

Cate Blanchett

New mom Cate was recently part of an ad campaign promoting Sydney's Earth Hour blackout, and she has also converted her own home to solar power. As co-artistic directors of the Sydney Theater Company, Cate and her husband plan to make the theater green and hope to power an entire theater season with alternative energy.

The Roots

This Grammy-winning hip-hop group loves animals, working with PETA on a campaign to Stop the Violence: Go Veg. The group also hosted a Pre-Grammy Jam & Green Carpet Bash, inviting fellow artists and friends to perform with them and raise awareness about green issues. As part of that event, they partnered with youth-focused group Global Inheritance to promote composting by giving away specially designed and autographed compost bins.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Since filming, The Beach in Thailand, Leo has been one of Hollywood’s most vocal environmental supporters. He often flies commercially instead of on polluting private jets, and drives himself around in a hybrid Toyota Prius. In 1998, he started the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to promote environmental causes and lately he's been working on 11th Hour, an environmental documentary featuring interviews with global green leaders.

My fave is a tie between 8.5,9,10, and 11. Mainly 9 and 10. Not for the looks, but the brains behind it.
