Kellie Martin talks about her eco-friendly home
Like so many of us, Kellie Martin says that she’s "slowly but surely" going green in her approach to motherhood. The 32-year-old actress counts eco-friendly Weleda and Avalon Organics baby skin care products, Can You Dig It? organic cotton clothes, Born Free bottles and sippy cups and Haba wooden toys among her favorites for Margaret ‘Maggie’ Heather, her 16-month-old daughter with husband Keith Christian. Kellie tells that she hopes some day soon "everything in my daughter’s closet, crib, playroom and anything that touches her skin will be free of toxic chemicals." She adds,
I’m really passionate about keeping everything around your baby as safe as possible! When she’s feeling as though she needs a little "baby-free" time, Kellie says she enjoys yoga; When the family wants to do something together, they head for the great outdoors, putting Maggie in her "Bob jogging stroller and getting out for a good long walk." Besides teaching Maggie to "live with an open heart" and to be "compassionate and loving," Kellie says she and Keith hope their daughter will grow up to be equally loving towards the planet.
I … want to teach my kids to respect the world around them — to live with less ’stuff.’ Life is a lot simpler without all the clutter.

motherhood means eco-friendly living – and plenty of couch-jumping.

"You can jump on the sofas, walk around barefoot," she says in the magazine's November issue. "There's nothing off-limits here."
By using nontoxic paints and recycled furniture, the new parents – whose family also includes three dogs – pulled off an environmentally friendly renovation. "The energy here is so inviting – it is open and playful," says Alba. "And everywhere you look, inside and out, you get to see a part of nature."
As for how Warren, 29, contributes to the new house, Alba says, "he's pretty organized for a dude."

Having children makes you realise all these things.
"They are perfect and you think, 'How can I help sustain their state of bliss and progress?' And really beating up the planet the way we have is not going to do that. Having kids is a great catalyst for reflection and action.
"It makes you say, 'OK, what's the thing that I can truly attack?' It sounds silly when you talk about composting, but it's something that is manageable in my household, something that I know we can accomplish."
To prove her environmental credentials, Julia recently spent a whopping 15million on a green makeover for her Malibu home.
She added: "I drive a biodiesel car and I try to set goals that are achievable as opposed to saying, 'I am going to be completely waste-free in my house.' It's just a little bit at a time."
