Leonardo DiCaprio made an appearance in Hong Kong to discuss his advocacy of environmental issues and to plug a new credit card. Honk Kong bank HSBC and Leo’s foundation have joined forces to produce a “green credit card” which is made of environmentally safe materials. The card also uses only digital billing, eliminating the need for paper, and every transaction contributes to a local environmental construction project.
Leo also attended a premiere of his documentary, “The 11th Hour”. He produced and narrated the project.
Leo told the assembled crowd that he lives in a solar house and drives only environmentally friendly automobiles. This is all fantastic and I love trees but the brother’s speaking engagements need work. He’s a mesmerizing actor when he wants to be but this must be because his personality is empty and just waiting to be filled with a new one with each project.
I’ve had more interesting hangnails. I could have been doing my taxes as opposed to being lulled into a coma while watching the accompanying video. Seriously. Twirl fire batons or toss out environmentally friendly light bulbs. Do something!
