Activists To Leonardo DiCaprio: Do More To Change Hollywood

There’s an interesting video making the rounds showing eco-activists storming a transport ship filled with Rainforest lumber. The video is directed at Leonardo DiCaprio, urging him to look inside the Hollywood film industry and use his power to stop studios from relying on the precious lumber for film sets. We’re not sure who exactly the activists are working for — but the banner they release on the side of the ship shows Greenpeace, Earth First, and another unidentified group. According to Greenpeace, this one ship (whose main customer is Hollywood) contained almost 5,000 acres of Rainforest lumber. While the video is a few years old, the mix is aimed at today’s environmentalism with the message “Eco Freaks storm timber ship while Leonardo DiCaprio sells Magazines”. Obviously, this is an unfair attack on DiCaprio — whose efforts to bring attention to helping the environment are rock solid. The message, however, for green celebrities to not only urge the public to make a difference, but also their own industries is highly relevant. Hollywood is still a massive consumer and polluter. But signs point to change — especially with the designation of new positions in studios that directly address environmental stewardship on sets; and the use of recycled timber and other resources in the creation of Evan Almighty and other films. It’s a start that hopefully will become the standard. Have a look at the video below.
