Leonardo DiCaprio will support World Environment Day on June 5 with the United Nations Environment Programme!

According to Look To The Stars, the theme for WED2015 is “7 Billion Dreams. 1 Planet. Consume with Care.” UNEP Goodwill Ambassadors have formed a “Dream Team” to inspire others to work towards a healthier planet and to make pledges supporting the Sustainable Development Goals, which surrounds things that we consume and tend to waste on a regular basis: water, food, energy and all natural resources like forests and animal products. The Dream Team includes Leo, Ian Somerhalder, Jack Johnson, Li Bingbing and more.

“Overconsumption of food is detrimental to our health and the environment,” Leonardo said. “Land degradation, declining soil fertility, unsustainable water use, overfishing and marine environment degradation are all lessening the ability of the natural resource base to supply food. #WorldEnvironmentDay is less than three weeks away. What’s #just1thing that you can do on #WED2015 to fight overconsumption and food waste?
