Back in '05 we reported that Dawson attended a UN conference in support of the Poverty-Environment Partnership — a network of organizations that promote preserving the environment as a means to end poverty.
Recently she's been paling around with eco-style guru Danny Seo. Says Dawson about Seo, "He's fun, he's smart, and he makes it seem so uncool not to think about the Earth." She's also styling it up green when choosing pieces for her wardrobe - word on the street is that Dawson dons eco-fashionable clothing line Stewart + Brown.
In March, the eco-activist joined fellow celebs Josh Hartnet and Jason Flemyg for the Global Cool text messaging campaign. For just a few bucks a month, fans can get eco-tip text messages from Dawson, with the proceeds supporting the Global Cool Foundation.
