"Pierce Brosnan speaks on key environmental issues, really engaging himself in the issues rather than simply lending his name." —Sean Schmidt, SSF Style cofounder

Who’s the eco-fairest of them all? The Sustainable Style Foundation (SSF)–an international nonprofit that addresses social and environmental challenges from the perspectives of fashion, food, film, architecture, design, travel, and music–has twenty celebs in mind. Its 2004 Best Dressed Environmental List focuses on high-profile figures who profoundly influenced sustainable issues in the past year.

• Julia Butterfly Hill, activist/author
• Blythe Danner, actor
