Ed Begley Jr. says he's been into recycling since 1970 and recently refused a ride in a limousine during a promotional tour for his new TV series, "Parenthood."

Instead, Begley said in Redbook, he rode his bike from his San Fernando Valley home to the Century City studio."It's late. But it's not too late," said the former "St. Elsewhere" star, who is on the boards of seven environmental organizations and recycles everything from newspapers to metal products.

"People have to realize that they can turn this around quicker than they think. How? By exercising their voting power and their purchasing power."
