Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo have joined together to launch a new campaign to provide more access to clean energy.
According to ABC News, the actors launched “100%,” which aims to make energy from renewable sources available to everyone at an affordable price.
The launch took place Thursday, June 18 at a community garden in NYC. Complete with musicians and dancers, and a solar-powered pizza truck and cell phone charging station, the event was a huge success..
Leonardo stated that this campaign wasn’t about politics anymore, but humanity. “This is a grassroots people’s movement but the ambition of this movement is absolutely revolutionary. Clean energy grows local economies,” he told the crowd at the launch.
Mark admitted the seriousness of the issue. “This is really mankind’s greatest threat, and it should take some serious problem solving on all of our parts,” he said. “And we don’t really have to give up anything to do it. We will be collecting the sun and the wind that falls on us every single day.”
Kudos to Leo and Mark for starting this campaign!
