Last year on April 22, the Earth Day Network launched a program called Billion Acts of Green which aims to get everyone to achieve small “green” goals, and eventually enough people will chip in to accomplish one billion environmental acts. Now, celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Edward Norton, and Ian Somerhalder are chipping in to the program to accomplish great acts of green along with everyone else.


Leonardo DiCaprio’s Act of Green

While most people pledge to do things like reducing the amount of water they use when brushing their teeth, Leonardo DiCaprio pledged $1 million to the World Wildlife Fund to help save the tigers, which helped launched www.SaveTigersNow.org


Edward Norton’s Act of Green

Edward Norton started an online fundraising website called Crowdrise that makes it easy for anyone to start a charitable fundraising program. To help raise money for his charity of choice, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, Norton ran the New York Marathon with a group of Maasai warriors and raised $1 million.


Ian Somerhalder’s Act of Green

Ian Somerhalder created the IS Foundation, which works with other organizations to make positive impacts for the planet. An example of the successes the IS Foundation achieved is in their collaboration with Conservation International, which ended up saving over 300 acres of forest.
