Strike It Rich: Eco Barons

Ever wonder what the rich and famous do with all of their millions? Well if you thought it was just spent on fast cars and designer clothes … think again. Check out Eco Barons: The New Heroes of Environmental Activism by Edward Humes. Starting from just $5 used, you can gain some insight on just who among the elite are advocating for a better world and how they are doing it. We often see celebrities in the limelight for being environmentalists as well as entertainers but it’s not always the A-list celebs who are making a difference. Other cash-heavy activists are putting their green in the right place like the former fashion magnate and founder of Esprit who’s saved more rainforests than anyone else to the Hollywood pool cleaner who became the leading force behind a worldwide effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions … now who’s laughing all the way to the bank?
