Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo join forces to campaign for clean energy

New York -  U.S. actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo have teamed up in a bid to widen access to clean energy.

The movie stars launched "100%," a campaign aimed at making energy from renewable sources available to everyone — and making it affordable.

DiCaprio has spent much of the last few years supporting environmental and animal conservation efforts. At Thursday night's event, the actor said the clean energy movement was no longer about politics, but humanity.

The event was held at a community garden in New York.

Musicians and dancers entertained the crowd while a solar-powered pizza truck provided food. A solar powered cell phone charging station was also available.

The event comes on the heels of Pope Francis' plea on Thursday for the world to clean up the environment. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
