"Each and every day, these organizations are doing important work to ensure our planet's resources for future generations. Hopefully, our donations will help expand their reach and raise their profit," said Leo.
Proud Papa Paul:
Sir Paul McCartney showed off his new lady, Nancy Shevell at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in New York City. The media-shy couple came out of the relationship closet to help honor his daughter, Stella. The eco-designer was being singled out for her ethically responsible fashion and clothing line. "My parents always taught me that doing well and doing good in the world are not mutually exclusive. And having the NRDC honor my efforts proves that fashion can be both fashion and environmentally sustainable," said Stella.
