Green is always in fashion in Hollywood, and two American entrepreneurs are being honored for their ecological contributions.

The Environmental Media Association says Jane Fonda and Natalie Portman will present Ted Turner and Jeff Skoll with Environmental Media Awards at a private ceremony next month.

The awards recognize people, organizations, and TV and film productions that help raise awareness of environmental issues.

Skoll's namesake foundation has funded organizations such as the Amazon Conversation Team, the American Council on Renewable Energy and Global Footprint Network.

Turner, who founded CNN, supports wildlife habitat preservation, promotes sustainable energy and furthers other environmental causes through his Turner Foundation.

The 20th annual Environmental Media Awards will be presented Oct. 16 at Warner Bros. Studios.
