The Earth Day Global Broadcast is hosted once again by actors and eco-activists Ed Begley, Jr. and Rachelle Carson Begley. “I was a struggling young actor when Earth Day began in 1970, “Ed recalls. “It inspired me to do what i could to live more responsibly. I began collecting rain water in a barrel so i wouldn’t waste clean water. Now, Rachelle and I live in a home we designed to save energy, save water and save money. And we do everything we can to encourage everyone restore our planet.”
‘I‘m proud to be hosting the Earth Day Global Broadcast,” says Rachelle. “All day, we’ll be streaming news and music about what each of us can do to take care of this planet we call home. By taking care of the earth, we’re taking care of ourselves and each other. We hope you’ll be inspired to find one more thing you can do to help.”
