George Clooney is the man.

One of Clooney's earliest films was Return of the Killer Tomatoes. It is a work of art for what can be accomplished with a tiny budget and proper product placement - "I'll have a Crest."

Well, let’s see if this actually works first. You can create all the programs you want, but you need to attend and commit otherwise he and these kids are just wasting time.

So you're theory is that unless people do it, it won't get done. Like literally everything.

The right talks about how Hollywood are all elite and don't care about the people.

Um...

I'll give him credit for starting an interesting social initiative that will hopefully improve vocational opportunities for underprivileged kids. That's great.

But his involvement with Nestle and Nespresso coffee pods is utterly backwards. Nespresso has been accused of child labor practices in Central America and Africa where their beans are harvested. The Nespresso pods/capsules are far from environmentally friendly and can't be recycled in many countries including Japan. Nestle is also the company that strongly promotes the privatization of drinking water. I often try to avoid buying anything Nestle.

While I have nothing against someone making more money, he chose one of the worst companies to partner with. He speaks out against child abuse and environmental policies of corporations and industries but has no problem profiting from them.

There are lot's of celebrities that support sustainable social initiatives with their own money not for publicity but because they believe in them. I'm not so sure Clooney is one of them.

Pretty close in the case of the Entertainment industry
