Nicole Richie and her fellow young Hollywood celebrities are going green, embarking on a project to bring organic gardens and greenery to urban schools in L.A.
The Environmental Media Association (EMA) and the Los Angeles Unified School District have teamed up with personal care brand Yes To Inc. to support the planting of organic gardens and greenery in urban schools. The EMA board members, including Amy Smart, Nicole Richie, Maroon 5, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rosario Dawson, Matthew Rhys, Lance Bass, Emily VanCamp, Anna Getty, Olivia Wilde, Carter Oosterhouse and more, have each offered to adopt a school to raise awareness for the program and help teach kids about environmental education. The program is scheduled to launch in early summer.
"We celebrate the dedication faculty members and students of LAUSD have to the environment," said EMA President Debbie Levin. "It is vital that we continue to foster an ongoing message of education and social and environmental responsibility."
