The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Earlier this month, Ecorazzi told you that eco race car driver Leilani Munter offered some sustainable eating advice as part of the Athletes Go Green campaign — an initiative to unite players, fans and teams in an effort to paint the sports world green in the days leading up to Earth Day.

Keeping up with her environmental advocacy, the sports star recently announced that she is heading to New Orleans to help clean up the massive oil spill that has devastated the Golf Coast.

“I am headed to New Orleans in the morning to volunteer to help clean up the oil spill,” said Munter on her website. “Likely I will end up working with the wildlife since I have a background in wildlife rescue from college.”

Leilani continues, “This spill is on track to become the largest man made environmental disaster in history. The oil is gushing out at 200,000 gallons per day, nearly 10 times what they had originally estimated and it’s seems to be increasing in flow. It is a mile below the surface and they don’t know how to stop it, it could be leaking for months.”

Whoa! Oil spills stress us out something awful!

If you’d like to get involved, visit DeepWaterHorizonResponse.com or check out the Huffington Post’s comprehensive list of volunteer opportunities. It looks like they’ll need all the help they can get on this one.
