Jackie Chan may not drive a hybrid (or maybe he does) but he has taken meaningful action on behalf of the environment.

He has also offered his star power to environmental efforts on the mainland. In 2004 Jackie participated in the effort to build a Green Great Wall in China when he planted trees near Beijing’s Great Wall to promote awareness of environmental protection. In recognition for his commitment to the environment in China, he was appointed an Environment and Culture Ambassador by the State Environmental Protection Administration.

In 2011, Chan’s appeared in a PSA about saving energy:
