We've come a long way since the days where Captain Planet seemed to be the only celebrity concerned about our environment!
The Environmental Media Awards celebrated Hollywood's most eco-friendly on Saturday, and two of Hollywood's biggest greenies won big!
Matt Damon was in his own personal Green Zone as he was celebrated as the Ongoing Commitment Honoree of the evening for his work with Water.org! How ’bout dem organically grown apples!
Meanwhile, Hayden Panettiere won the Futures Award for her work protecting and preserving ocean animals! "Eck-eck-eck" = us saying "good job" in Dolphin speak!
Hayden even brought a little Miley Cyrus joke to the ceremony while she was accepting her award:
"Twerking is not going to solve global warming."
Too true! Although twerking doesn't produce exhaust, it makes us exhausted with how much people keep talking about it!
Congrats you two! Keep up the great work!

Jessica Biel is such a lover!
She loves ferocious beasts, Justin Timberlake, her brother Justin, and nature!
So when her little bro and his bestie Grason Ratowsky decided to launch an eco-friendly accessories line called Bare, she partnered with them for the cause!
The collection includes backpacks, totes, pouches, and other useful items that are made from recycled burlap coffee sacks.
Jessica’s already using some of the products, and said:

Health! Nature! Saving money!
It doesn't really matter which of these reasons is right, Tim Robbins is riding his bike and it looks like he might just simply be enjoying it (Kinda? Maybe that's strain on his face?)!
Plus, we're pretty sure you can't go to a place called the Green House Smoke Shop and NOT be eco-friendly!
We wonder what he purchased…
Looking fab, Tim! Keep up the healthy choices!

Kimberly-Clark is revolutionizing the T.P. industry!
The paper goods makers are introducing Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper, which will be sold at Walmart and Sam's Club stores in the Northeast on Monday. And if sales take off, the brand will be sold nationally and globally.
It's even rumored that they will adapt the technology to paper towels!
The product may not have the perfectly round holes that tubes provide, but they do fit in the designated spindles. And because no glue is used, every piece of toilet paper will be useable!
In the United States, 17 billion toilet paper tubes are made every year and account for 160 million pounds of trash.
"We found a way to bring innovation to a category as mature as bath tissue," said Doug Daniels, brand manager at Kimberly-Clark.
If it helps the environment, we're all in!

Looks like Demi Moore is thinking about going green, and she's doing so in style!
On Twitter, Demi posted a picture of herself in front of a $90,000 Mercedes-Benz S400 hybrid.
Here's what she said along with her pic:
"Trying out the new Mercedes Hybrid - love that they are going green and with style!"
Given the fact that hubby Ashton got her a brand new 2010 Prius for her 47th birthday last year, there's been talk that this fancy hybrid may be a present for Kutcher's 33rd.
We say go for it, bb! The car looks awesome AND you'll be helping the environment!
