sophia bush, one tree hillOne Tree Hill stars Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols recently travelled to Louisiana for a first-hand look at the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.

The duo both work with Global Green and claim their trip down south made lasting impressions on both their professional and personal lives. In an interview with Planet Green, Bush and Nichols detail their experience.

“We’re standing there as he’s telling us this looking at all these guys that they’ve hired for these cleanup crews who are not wearing any protective gear,” says Bush. We asked them, ‘You’ve been told that if you are wearing a respirator on this beach while you clean up you’ll get fired?’ And they said yes.”

“It was all very moving to experience that firsthand,” said Nichols. “I wish everyone could go down there for a day or two and just walk around and talk to people, because if more people could do that, then we would be able to change things much quicker.”

During the interview, both the stars share some pretty moving and incredible stuff. Want to read more? Stop by PlanetGreen.com and check it out!

    The government and BP did a terrible job of cleaning up the spill. They continue to lie to this day about the chemicals they deployed and the amount of oil still in the enviroment.
