All too often we see people in positions of power, who fail to fully recognise and utilise their influence. Fame and fortune can easily inflate celebrities’ egos and lead them down paths of self-obsession and self-destruction. But when Hollywood’s heartthrobs choose to resist this temptation and use their fame and fortune to make a meaningful difference in the world, it is certainly the kind of act that is worth applause.
Take A Look At These 4 Celebrities Who Aren’t Afraid To Take a Stand Against Climate Change
You may recognise this blonde haired beauty from ‘Lord of the Rings’ or the ‘Aviator’, but what you may not recognise is her active role in taking care of Mother Earth. As an artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company, she has used her influence to install one of the world’s largest rainwater harvesting systems, on the roof of the Wharf, (which saves 3 million gallons of water each year) and has been active in fighting for the implementation of carbon tax in Australia with the ‘Say Yes’ advertising campaign.
If Leonardo’s Oscar acceptance speech about climate change didn’t convince you of his commitment to saving the planet, then perhaps the fact that he’s served on boards such as the World Wildlife Fund and the Natural Resources Defense will.
This fun-loving actress may be known for her ditzy roles in ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and ‘There’s Something About Mary’, but there’s nothing ditzy about her efforts to combat environmental issues! Her determination to raise awareness about ecology and conservation has lead her to create an MTV environmental documentary, and to participate in Al Gore’s climate change project program called ‘Save Our Selves’.
This Hollywood hero doesn’t waste time sitting around. Brad and his wife Angelina Jolie, are known for supporting many worthy causes, such as the ‘Make it Right’ foundation, which focuses on building eco-friendly and sustainable houses in New Orleans, and the Jolie-Pitt foundation, dedicated to protecting natural resources and conserving wildlife.
These four are just a few of the celebrities that are saving the planet, and it is encouraging to know that more and more famous actors are waking up and realising their ability to make a change.
Climate change is a threat facing all mankind. Whether we are rich or poor, famous or not, we all face the same fate, and so we all need to work together to save our precious planet!
