Mark Ruffalo's Oscar Fashion To Shine Light On Fracking

On Oscar night, expect Mark Ruffalo to make a statement on the red carpet. The actor and activist plans to wear a blue water droplet pin during Sunday night’s Academy Awards as a way of bringing attention to natural gas hydro-fracking.

The pin is an initiative of WaterDefense, a campaign to protect our drinking water from extreme methods used to extract fossil fuels.

As Ecorazzi explained earlier this month when we spoke about a potential EPA investigation into fracking, this method with the funny name is no joke. This practice of retrieving natural gas from shale rock uses 70 to 140 billion gallons of water each year.

“Water is our most treasured resource. It’s the most basic element of life and not having access to clean and safe water changes everything,” says Ruffalo, nominated this year for “The Kids Are Alright.”  For the past three years the actor has been tireless in his efforts to rid the practice of fracking in the United States, especially in New York, where the actor currently resides with his family.

Here’s hoping we can catch a glimpse of the pin tomorrow night!
