“The Vampire Diaries” star Ian Somerhalder is one of the great eco celebs who truly walks the walk. Through his organization The Ian Somerhalder Foundation, the actor is able to motivate young people to get involved and take action on behalf of animals and the environment.

What inspired Somerhalder to start ISF? The 2010 BP oil spill. He told the Weekender, “I’ve always been passionate about the environment and its creatures. But what really tipped the scales for me was the oil spill in the Gulf. The unimaginable devastation to my own backyard had a massive impact on my personal urgency to find a way to make a change.”

The organization is an unstoppable force on social networking sites where they spread green news and tips on how to take action.

As for what the actor does in his personal life to reduce his footprint, he said, “While my home is equipped with reusable water bottles, grocery bags and an array of biodegradable and eco-friendly products, it’s really in my consumer choices that I find the most power in preserving the environment. Every time I purchase something, I always stop and truly consider whether or not this product reflects the change I want to see. Just turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth is enormous when you consider that, on average, the tap puts out four gallons of water a minute.”
