Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo have teamed for a campaign aimed at making energy from renewable sources available to everyone and making it affordable.

The movie stars launched the environmental campaign which is to be known as 100% on Thursday, June 18, 2015.

DiCaprio, who has spent much of the last few years toward environmental and animal conservation efforts, said 'This is a grassroots people’s movement but the ambition of this movement is absolutely revolutionary. Clean energy grows local economies.'

For Ruffalo, who is a co-founder of the campaign, 100% is borne out of the need to tackle serious issue.

“This is really mankind’s greatest threat, and it should take some serious problem solving on all of our parts,” he said. “And we don’t really have to give up anything to do it. …. We will be collecting the sun and the wind that falls on us every single day.I just came in from Los Angeles, where I was doing some press and they think they’ve got something on us concerning renewable energy … they’ve got nothing on us. We are coming for you Governor (Jerry) Brown.

The event held at a community garden in New York City with musicians and dancers entertaining the crowd while a solar-powered pizza truck provided food.
