Celebrities Frolic in New Earth Day PSA

By Emma Orlow

Holla at our gal, Mother Earth today! Although you've been a little wacky with your weather lately, we appreciate all that you've done for us (and forgive you for making us wear fleece tights in April). And, in honor of Earth Day, we're sharing this very sweet PSA video by one of our favorite filmmakers, Sarah Sophie Flicker. You might remember Flicker's other recent rad projects like a Get Out the Vote PSA set to Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" and anti-fracking ad, "Don't Frack My Mother."  Per usual, Flicker, in collaboration with The Rainforest Alliance, gathered a cool crew to help spread an Earth Day message, having friends like Alexa Chung, Sean Lennon and Jemima Kirke lip sync to The Kinks' "Village Green Preservation Society." Standouts from the clip include, daisy-chain making parties, dancing with garden-grown vegetables, backyard yoga, a dancing frog (we think?!) and lots and lots of frolicking.
