African American celebrities are showing up for the green movement.  Many celebrities have decided to make a commitment to going green by putting their celebrity where their heart is.  TheUrbanDaily decided to list the top 10 Greenest Celebrities.  Who made the list?

DRAKE: Drake announced in February that he would headline an eco-friendly college tour.  The tour hopes to encourage environmental sustainability through music and is a part of the 5th Annual Campus Consciousness tour.

WYCLEF JEAN: Wyclef has created quite a stir this year.  Although his efforts with Haiti have caused some controversy, he still has done his part to go green.  Wyclef teamed up with Timberland to produce eco-friendly boots.  The boots, called Yele Haiti boots, are made from recycled and organic materials and $2 from every sale went to support Yele.  Also, Wyclef’s organization coordinated tree planting initiatives prior to the earthquake.

ERYKAH BADU: A devout vegetarian, Erykah is also doing her part to save the environment.  She teamed up with Kiehl last year to promote the Limited Edition Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion.  The bottle, which she designed, is made of 100% post-consumer recycled packaging.   She also delivered both of her children naturally at home.

ALICIA KEYS: For Alicia Keys’ CD Unplugged, Alicia showed us her love for the environment by putting her CD in eco-friendly packaging.  The CD doesn’t come in plastic or a booklet, but rather card wallet packaging.

See the rest of the list.
