Time is on Leonardo DiCaprio's side when it comes to environmentalism.

The Oscar-nominated star has teamed up with watchmakers Jaeger-LeCoultre to form the "Time to Care" program to benefit the actor's environmental organization, the Leonardo DiCaprio Fund at the Califonria Community Foundation, the Swiss company has announced.

Jaeger-LeCoultre will fashion two limited edition watches this fall, the proceeds of which will go towards Leo's Fund.

An avid environmentalist, this is just the latest project in Leo's very green life. He drives a hybrid car, lives in a solar paneled home and has lobbied for access to clean water. Last year, the 33-year-old produced and narrated 11th Hour, a global warming documentary.

"We all have to do our part to raise awareness about global warming and the problems we as a people face in promoting a sustainable environmental future for our planet," he has said.
