In my opinion, no one will ever measure up to Ian Somerhalder and his green achievements. His eco-friendly accomplishments just keep growing, and this time around, he’s adding United Nations Goodwill Ambassador to the list.

Somerhalder was recently dubbed ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program. For his first official task, he will join in on the eco-friendly fun as host on June 5 for the 40th World Environment Day.

Fellow U.N. Ambassadors Gisele Bundchen and Don Cheadle will also join “The Vampire Diaries” star at the annual event which encourages others to get involved in environmental activities and show positive action for the environment worldwide.

People are challenged to pledge an eco-activity, whether it’s planting trees, recycling or walking to work. As long as the act benefits the planet, that’s all that matters.

“When you do your part for the environment, everyone wins,” the actor said in a video promoting the event.

This year, five fuel-efficient cars will be given to the winners. As Somerhalder says, “Who knew being an environmental warrior could be so cool?”
