Pierce Brosnan recently revealed to Reader’s Digest magazine how his childhood without a father made him the family man he is today. The former 007 has five children, three from his previous marriage to the late Cassandra Harris, and two from his wife, Keely Shaye Smith. Pierce, 55, said: “I want my boys to feel like they belong and know the love of family. I’m very aware of how precious the time with my children is.”

As we’ve previously covered here on the Razz, Brosnan is also heavily involved in environmental initiatives — having given away over $1 million dollars to various organizations of the years. He also brings that passion home and tries to instill green values into his children.

We have a compost bin. The boys know how to compost all the food,” he told the magazine. “And it goes into the garden.”

As someone who at one time never composted, today I’m bummed that I didn’t learn earlier. The amount of waste you save from going into the garbage is incredible — and it’s beneficial for your garden or outside projects as well. It’s great to see Pierce and Keely embedding those values into their kids at an early stage.
