MTV's "The Real World: New Orleans" Cast Joins Gulf Coast Recovery Efforts

The cast of MTV's "The Real World: New Orleans" has partnered with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of the nation's largest environmental action groups, to help raise awareness and boost recovery efforts in the Gulf region. The network is giving fans an easy way to get involved, encouraging the purchase of limited-edition Real World: New Orleans Gulf Recovery t-shirts.

One hundred percent of t-shirt sales will go to the NRDC Gulf Recovery Fund, which is working to help people, wildlife and ecosystems recover from the disaster. The NRDC is also taking steps toward sustainable clean energy solutions to make oil spills a thing of the past.

"The gushing has stopped and attention has dimmed, but Gulf residents and the surrounding environment need our help more than ever," said Phil Gutis, NRDC communications director. "The devastating impacts of the oil disaster continue, and we can all play a role in helping the local restoration efforts that are an essential part of the long term recovery."
