You know what they say: a passionate celebrity is a nonprofit’s best friend.

For over thirty years, Robert Redford has been a trustee of the Natural Resource Defense Council — an organization that is dedicated to solving the most pressing environmental issues, including curbing global warming, getting toxic chemicals out of the environment, moving America beyond oil and saving wildlife.

Whether Redford is promoting their Green Week efforts or recording oil-spill PSA’s, the actor/activist is on a constant quest to help the eco organization succeed.

In a recent article on The Huffington Post, Redford praises NRDC founder John Adams for his leadership and vision.

“Since he helped launch NRDC in 1970, Adams has been the toughest, most tenacious champion of the notion that Americans should be able to drink safe water, breathe clean air, buy products free of toxic chemicals, and protect our natural heritage, ” says Redford. “In a new book called A Force for Nature, Adams and his wife Patricia explain how they helped build the modern environmental movement.”
