The Ecoists from Sundance’s THE GREEN is a series of one minute shorts where “today’s most active and recognizable environmental activists share ideas, information and enthusiasm about their cause of choice.” Obviously, these topics range from solar power to global warming to preservation of natural resources. This year’s participants include Sheryl Crow, Kevin Bacon, Laurie David, Sam Waterson, Carole King, Billy Baldwin, Stephanie Powers, James Blunt, Ron Livingston, Erykah Badu and Kerry Washington.

I’ve included Ron Livingston’s short on solar energy below — but check out James Blunt and Sam Waterson after the fold. The full list of currently released videos, can be found here.

    Sometimes people make unfriendly comments about the entertainers coming forward to support different issues. But the truth is, I am more interested in learning about the different issues when I see these people in “real life” situations, making statements and actually doing/living their lives based on their beliefs. Especially the environmental issues.
    For example, James Blunt simply stating that he is trying to learn as much as he can and doing whatever he can to improve this precious world be live in. Bravo stars, and bravo ecorazzi!
