Environmental A-listers Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson are famous for their individual efforts -- Harrelson has spoken out for veganism and against mountaintop removal mining while Nelson has supported biodiesel and Farm Aid-- and now they're joining forces for a celebrity-studded fundraiser for a very green cause. Willie & Woody's All Star Texas Hold 'Em Charity Tournament has a $500 buy in and also offers $100 spectator seats -- but only has room for 200 players and 50 spectators, so book your spots early. All the proceeds from the game and associated silent auction benefit the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance, which supports "community-based biodiesel." (Via Ecorazzi)
Jamie Oliver Continues his RevolutionPhoto via Channel 4
Chef Jamie Oliver, who won an Emmy for his healthy-eating reality show "Jaime Oliver's Food Revolution," sat down with The Huffington Post to answer questions about the Food Revolution, his fight against junk food, and how to get his message to kids. He also announced plans for his first all-vegetarian cookbook: "In every single one of my books I've ever written, 65 percent of my books have always been vegetarian without even saying it," he says. "Vegetarian, as a general concept, is a brilliant thing. We've got to stop eating so much meat. But you don't want to do purposeful nut loafs because you're a vegetarian. Beautiful, elegant, delicate, seasonal, brilliant food that happens to be vegetarian -- pastas, stir frys, lovely salads, incredible breads, beautiful grilled, roasted veggies with interesting oils and vinegars and herbs...there's loads and loads out there."
Stella McCartney Wants to Dress Your KidsPhoto via TheStir Stella McCartney's collection for Gap Kids -- which included jackets, blankets, and sweaters -- was such a success that the ethical designer has announced plans to start her own line for the junior set, Stella McCartney Kids. McCartney plans to make dresses, jackets, boots, onesies, shirts, and other gear for infants and kids, with an emphasis on durable, long-lasting styles and fabrics perfect for hand-me-downs -- at an approachable price point. "I feel like all the timeless children's wear is reserved for the expensive brands and that did not sit well with me, she says. "I wanted to create a desirable, fun, wearable kids collection that was affordable." Look for the styles in early November in Stella McCartney stores, or online at stellamccartneykids.com.

Keri Russell Goes "Wilde"Screenshot via Pop Tower
Fox's new show "Running Wilde," premiering next week, marks the return to primetime of both "Felicity"'s Keri Russell and "Arrested Development"s Will Arnett who, this time around, play exes with conflicting environmental morals. In real life, Russell says, she's not as earth-conscious as her character, although she takes advantage of her ability to eat local, seasonal food: "I do have a vegetable garden and shop at the farmer's market," she told Mother Nature Network. "We can walk there." She's also sticking closer to home: She and her family live in Brooklyn, and the show films about 25 miles away, in Port Washington, NY -- so she doesn't have to make a cross-country trek for filming in California.
