WASHINGTON – After drawing criticism last year for taking a private jet to accept an environmental award, Academy Award-winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio took a commercial flight to and from last weekend’s People’s Climate March in Washington, according to a source close to the actor.

DiCaprio was also driven around locally in a Tesla electric car.

In May 2016, DiCaprio flew to New York from France on a private jet to accept an award at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball. He reportedly flew back to Cannes after the ball.

PJM learned that the actor traveled from New York to Washington and back on a commercial flight for the march, at which he did not deliver any speech.
