Life in the limelight can't be easy, but many celebrities use that publicity to draw focus to meaningful causes. Some have taken that attention to stand up for what they believe in, and become the face of the environmental movement.
As Robert Redford wrote when fighting the Keystone XL pipeline, "Every once in a while an opportunity comes along for all of us to be the solution."
Many environmental challenges now have celebrity advocates. Want to know where to buy vegan shoes? Just look at Alicia Silverstone’s blog, The Kind Life. Curious about the consequences of fracking? Read some of Mark Ruffalo’s op-eds on the subject. And if you are looking for a celeb to rub shoulders with at a Keystone XL pipeline protest, Daryl Hannah is your woman.
