Anyone think Leonardo DiCaprio is going to win tonight? Did you know he is an environmentalist and philanthropist who recently donated $15 million to environmental projects? He also met with the Pope to discuss the environment. Pretty amazing.
Leo himself along with Al Gore announced that the Oscars was going green back in 2007. This article lists the ways they went about it and the the impact it made.
Fun fact: The article mentions the documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which Beautycounter’s CEO, Gregg Renfrew, credits with being her “tipping point”. It motivated her to begin a quest to living healthier and safer. That journey eventually led her to create the Beautycounter brand and dedicate her life to lobbying for consumer protection in the personal care industry.
Enjoy the Oscars!
