There’s no denying that the environment is crucial. We’ve been seeing headlines upon headlines of the disastrous effects of climate change and treating our Earth poorly. Whether it be protecting our wildlife or saving the Rainforests, it all needs to be taken seriously. We live in this world, so why not take care of it? And this is all exactly what so many celebrities believe.
From legendary starlets like Bette Midler to some of our Man Crush Mondays (remember those?) like Brad Pitt, there are a plethora of celebrities “fighting the good fight” as they say. Many have founded their own sustainable, environmentally conscious companies and some have taken on initiatives to fix a certain environmental issue — we love it all.
While we all can do our part, celebrities have more attention than most, thus more power to shine a light on different issues. Two-time Oscar-winning actress and lifelong activist Jane Fonda put it perfectly in an article for the Guardian. “I don’t mean to cast myself as a hero: the simple calculation is that my age and celebrity secures the kind of national and global press attention that the cause needs.”
Check out some of our favorite celebrities that have done ongoing work to protect the environment.
