Extreme Town Makeover

Of the "A" list Hollywood actors, Leonardo DiCaprio is probably on top of the growing number of eco friendly stars who put their time and money where their mouth is. His current project is producing a TV show that will transform troubled towns into environmental models. Inspired by Al Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth, "E-topia" will chronicle the reconstruction of an American town as it is transformed into a "Green utopia of tomorrow."

Established in 1998, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation has actively fostered awareness of environmental issues through participation with such organizations as Natural Resources Defense Council, Global Green, USA, the International Fund For Animal Welfare, and National Geographic Kids.

    We have been trying to save a small town in Washington through Ecotourism efforts. To create jobs in a green industry. However, it is like buiding a vegatarian resturant in a caniball village.

    We have found the shift from brown to green may be out reach for the USA. Please check out our website.

    We invite your thoughts and comments. Dan Williams and team canopy tours.
