Famous Activists
Celebrities who care
They’re loaded, but some of them put their money and fame to good use. Some of these eco-friendly celebrities work to protect the oceans, while others want to reduce climate change. A few celebrity environmentalists even started their own foundations. Here are a few at the top of GreenPak’s list:
1. Leonardo Di Caprio

The Oscar-winner has raised millions of dollars to secure a sustainable future by protecting biodiversity, controlling climate change and focusing on ocean and wildland conservation through his aptly-named ‘The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation’ founded in 1998.
DiCaprio also sits at the board of important environmental organisations such as the WWF. In addition to this, the actor has put his experience in the film industry to good use, having produced two short movies and the critically-acclaimed documentary ‘The 11th hour’ to raise awareness on environmental issues and solutions.
2. Emma Watson

The British actress - widely known for her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise - is deeply committed to using her platform to speak up about important issues in today’s society, which include fighting for women’s rights and advocating for the recycling of waste.
3. Ian Somerhalder

Ian’s advocacy for environmental causes frequently puts him in the spotlight. In 2010, Somerhalder helped with the clean-up after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, in the Gulf of Mexico.
That same year he established the Ian Somerhalder Foundation asked people to donate to causes that were dear to their hearts, instead of sending him birthday gifts. Somerhalder opposes GMOs and factory farming and supports more organic ways of harvesting.
4. Rachel McAdams

McAdams is a devoted environmentalist. Not only does she choose to cycle instead of owning a car, the actress has also engaged in clean-up efforts following Hurricane Katrina and advocated for the preservation of farmland and water sources in Canada, among many others.
5. Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo work doesn’t stop at acting. Ruffalo founded Water Defense, a non-profit organisation focused on ensuring people have access to clean water and holding polluters accountable for their actions. Other causes he supports include the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energies and the prosecution of biotech giant; Monsanto.
6. Robert Redford

Undoubtedly, Robert Redford is one of the sole pioneers in celebrity environmentalism for relentlessly fighting for conservation and raising awareness on climate change issues, which he has been talking about since 1989.
7. Gisele Bündchen

Bündchen is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme, passionate about the environment and preservation of the planet.
8. Woody Harrelson

Woody Harrelson created the organisation ‘VoiceYourself’ which encourage citizens to protest pollution of the air, soil and water through everyday choices and behaviour.
