The future smells fishy for Leonardo DiCaprio.
In an effort to put his diehard environmentalism where his mouth is, the actor announced on Tuesday that he will now be investing in LoveTheWild, a company which specializes in sustainably farmed, frozen seafood meals.
"Estimates show the earth’s population approaching nine billion by 2050, putting tremendous pressure on our natural food resources," Leo said in a statement. “Seafood is a primary source of protein for nearly a billion people - but climate change, acidification and over fishing are putting increased pressure on our oceans’ natural stability.”
"The exploitation of our oceans has left many marine ecosystems on the brink of total collapse, which is hurting our ability to harvest our seas as a reliable food source as we have for thousands of years,” he continued. "LoveTheWild’s approach to sustainable, responsible aquaculture is promoting the development of a secure and environmentally conscious solution to feeding our planet’s growing population."
Doing something responsible for the planet and supporting your celebrity bae at the same time? It's a win-win.
