The Rundown

Who’s The Most Responsible Celebrity of Them All…?

 

George Clooney? Penelope Cruz? Or Erykah Badu?

The International Green Awards are asking the public to vote for the celebrity they think is most responsible when it comes to being environmentally friendly. As listeners to Talk Radio 702 and Cape Talk 567 will know, I have been doing the Celeb Green Tip on Redi Direko’s show for many years, getting hints and tips from those famous faces I’ve interviewed about how they look after the planet. So it is with great interest that I present to you the nominees for this year’s International Green Awards…drumroll, please.

George Clooney
Penelope Cruz
Ian Somerhalder
Livia Firth
Sachin Tendulkar
Vivienne Westwood
Pierre-Yves Cousteau
Erykah Badu
Zhou Xun
Nadya Hutagalung

Last year, supermodel Gisele Bündchen won the first ever Best International Green and Responsible Celebrity Award at the Natural History Museum, London. The awards have been running for 7 years and will this year take place at the Battersea Power Station in London in November.

On first look, it would seem George Clooney is a clear winner – he’s always using his platform as one of the most in demand Hollywood actors to do good. But Penelope Cruz has been an active force in mobilising the Hollywood community to campaign on issues ranging from world poverty (RED and One campaign) to human rights and, more recently, has also joined the ecological debate. A supporter of Global Green, she launched the Red Carpet/Green Cars Oscar campaign and is a leading advocate of its Greenest City challenge, which sees cities across the US compete to win a fleet of eco-friendly cabs. Penelope herself is committed to driving hybrid cars.

Then we get to The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder. His work is also impressive. He set up the ‘IS Foundation’ with the aim to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures. The IS Foundation focuses on habitat, energy and animals, as seeks to make connections to strengthen the push for positive environmental change. And the list goes on.

Celebs do have a sometimes unwarranted amount of social credit so if they can use it to help save the planet – why not?

Voting ends this Monday – go here to cast your ballot.
