Rodale.com has assembled a list of 50 environmentalist celebs (...ok, so they're the sexiest environmentalist celebs) who are using their fame and fortune to crusade for planet Earth. This Earth Day, why not let your students study the environmental acts of these actors, athletes and socialites? You can find the full article and slide show here: The 50 Sexiest Environmentalists
