Let’s hear it for green celebrities: They sneak sea-level rise into talk-show chats. When they get arrested at the White House, the hotness quotient of Keystone XL protesters goes through the roof. They dig deep into the couch cushions and donate to climate causes instead of buying another hydrofoil (call us, Leo!). A few even make the ultimate sacrifice: taking their clothes off for the planet. Bless them and their perfect bodies.
So for their continued optimism and can-do spirit in the climate fight, we’d like to show our gratitude and solidarity with the Fruit of the Gloom Award for Exceptional Environmental Service by a Famous Person in 2013 (give or take). The nominees are: Wendell Pierce! Jared Leto! Mark Ruffalo! Olivia Munn! Adrian Grenier! Gisele Bundchen! Don Cheadle!
But we figure the last thing an eco-conscious star needs is another trophy doorstop (that’s what the People’s Choice Award is for!). What they need is a basket of delicious, organic, local fruit. We can’t help it! The ethnic grandmother in us sees them fading to skin and bones and thinks, “Eat! Eat!”
But only one famous eco-celeb can walk away with a sumptuous, Grist-approved bounty of organic apples, bananas, and possibly even a kiwi. Help us pick by voting now! Polls close at midnight on April 16.
