Ed Begley Environmental EffortsEd has been considered an environmental leader in the Hollywood community for many years. CCTV-America takes an in-depth look to his environmental work.
But for Ed Begley, Jr. and his wife, Rachelle-Carson Begley, their most important roles have been as environmental activists and trend-setters.
“It’s my opinion that there are two lies about the environment,” Ed Begley told CCTV America’s Mike Walter. “One is that there are no problems, everything is just fine. We don’t have any big problems or even any medium problems. That I think is a mistake. The other lie is that things are so far gone that you can’t do anything.”
Begley and his wife, Rachelle Carson-Begley, are leading by example. They have set out to build one the most sustainable and “greenest” homes in the United States, but they say that minimizing our impact on the environment requires action on many different scales.
“It takes one person to stand up and say no,” Rachelle Carson-Begley said. “And you know what? We have to make a difference because it’s about our health – our children’s health.”
