Leonardo DiCaprio recently used his star power to promote a worthy cause, tweeting about the Peace Paddle event in Malibu in honor of World Oceans Day. The event raises awareness for ocean pollution and dying coral reefs; at each Peace Paddle event, surfers gather and arrange themselves into a giant peace sign in the water.

DiCaprio promoted the Peace Paddle on Twitter and Facebook, writing, “It’s World Oceans Day & as I see it, we have 2 options — exploit & destroy, or together we can protect it.”

Peace Paddle advocates and the National Resources Defense Council are currently pulling for President Obama to bring up ocean pollution and sustainability concerns at the Rio+20 Summit this month.
