Adding to his list of accolades, Leonardo DiCaprio will receive Nickelodeon’s first-ever “Green Apple Awards” this coming Saturday at the Kids’ Choice Awards. The 34-year-old actor will receive the honor from his friend and fellow greenie, actress Cameron Diaz. From the release,

Kids can join DiCaprio to help better the environment by pledging on www.nick.com/biggreenhelp. On Earth Day (April 22, 9 p.m. ET/PT), Nickelodeon will “Power Down” for 60-seconds, celebrating the nearly two million kid-pledges to-date, and symbolizing kids’ commitments to be more environmentally conscious. On-screen messaging will ask kids to simultaneously turn off their lights and unplug their gadgets and devices signaling their year-long promise to engage in real-world environmental action. When they power back up, kids can go online and find real-world tactics they can take to help the environment.

The Kids’ Choice Awards are a pretty big event, so Leo will have plenty of young minds to reach with a message of environmental stewardship. It’s great to see the network honoring his work and giving him the stage to chat a moment about his activism. Let’s hope he doesn’t get slimed in the process.
