TGIF Keen & Green Celeb: George Clooney

This week's green celebrity is George Clooney!

"I'm a big proponent of cleaning up the environment. I have two electric cars," he told TIME Magazine back in 2007.  (Although, he does admit to having flown on private jets in that same interview...hey, at least he admits it!)

Clooney was one of the first owners of the all electric Tango. Lately, he's been driving a Tesla Roadster.

In 2007, the CEO of Swatch chose George Clooney as an executive board member of its newest renewable energy company...and Clooney was chosen over Al Gore!

Additionally, he was on the cover (alongside Al Gore and others) onVanity Fair's 2006 "Special Green Issue."  

His activism doesn't stop with the environment.  Clooney has donated to Brad Pitt's Make it Right campaign, which is working on building sustainable homes in New Orleans.  He's also worked extensively with the situation in Darfur and is currently working on a campaign to help stop a potential war in Sudan.
