Zac Efron - Efron Hopes To Teach Kids About Green Issues With The Lorax

Actor Zac Efron loaned his voice to new animated movie DR. SEUSS' THE LORAX in a bid to help make youngsters more aware of environmental issues.
Danny DeVito voices Seuss creation The Lorax as it fights to halt the destruction of the world's forests, and Efron, who portrays a young boy who sets out to find out why the world has become so ugly, hopes the eco-friendly messages in the film will inspire kids.
He tells Teen Hollywood, "I try to be green, as much as I can. It's hard. I feel like I'm never doing enough... I've always been searching for a way to get more involved and to help, and I felt like this movie, with the message that it has, was a really organic way to be able to help and get involved for me as an actor because there are only so many things you can do.
"This is a way, through a film, to teach and hopefully get the message out to young kids, and as they say in the movie it only takes one seed. So, I think we're planting those seeds."

I think The Lorax is important story that can be used to teach kids about our environment. One way to teach children to be more sensitive to plants and nature is to have them grow the most sensitive plant of all - the TickleMe Plant. Though its not a Truffula tree, what makes the pet TickleMe Plant so magical is that it reacts as if it were being tickled when you Tickle It! The leaves fold and the branches droop! Just search TickleMe Plant to see a live one in action and to get your own little greenhouse kit to grow one. Every Lorax fan can grow a TickleMe Plant indoors. We have used TickleMe Plants for Dr. Seuss themed parties
