Eddie Vedder and Kelly Slater

Grist magazine recently featured Eddie Vedder as one half of a "green couple."

Another eco-bromance we're wild about: the sun-and-fun-and-sustainability relationship between musician Vedder and pro surfer Slater. Besides frequently catching waves together, the two pair up to raise big bucks for reef protection and environmental awareness through the Kelly Slater Foundation. Vedder, in between songs at a benefit show for the foundation last year, explained his motivation: "Half of every song I've ever written was written in the ocean, so that's sort of my way of giving back."

Bromance, huh?
