He also owns an electric Tesla roadster and a Fisher Karma plug-in hybrid.

He has also been chosen as the climate change Representative for the United States on September 16th 2014. His donation of a million dollars as well as his presence in Russia’s Tiger Summit in 2010, despite two flight delays, only proves his deep concern about the environment.

 Taking help of the social media,  Leonardo di Caprio has managed to make people aware of the environmental problems throughout the globe and the urgent need to attend to them.  Whether it be oil spills, or global warming effects, he pays equal attention to different kinds of environmental dangers.

Leonardo di Caprio, apart from being the amazing actor that he is can well be called a global environmentalist. His dedicated concerns towards the world, has led him to support many environmental summits and causes. He has donated to this cause at large. In fact, according to DiCaprio’s statement We’ve been given this gift, our planet, and we’ve found no other place in the universe that we can inhabit. I want to do something to create radical change to help save it. It’s our responsibility.”

DiCaprio’s little step in saving the environment could mean saving the planet from the wrath of the people. His actions, activities and concerns reflect an ideal message- that each person should do their bit to save the planet that we live in, before, it is too late.
