    Default Celebrity eco-friendly homes

    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. -

    Jessica Alba Shows Off Her Kid- & Eco-Friendly Home

    For Jessica Alba, motherhood means eco-friendly living – and plenty of couch-jumping.

    "It's kid-friendly, animal-friendly," the actress tells of the newly renovated L.A. canyon home she shares with husband Cash Warren and their daughter Honor Marie

    "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."

    Julia Roberts - eco-friendly home.
    Julia revealed that having kids has transformed her into a bit of an eco-warrior.She said: "With the environment it's kind of overwhelming, the state that we are in.

    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."

    Now, if everyone could each live in such eco-mansions, we just might be able to save this planet!

    nevermind that said mansion probably sucks up enough power, water and otherwise to run 3 normal sized houses..

    Gotta love the multiple cars parked outside of Julia Roberts' eco friendly home.
    Those all look like serious gas-guzzlers!

    Default 7 Fabulously Green Celebrity Homes

    Most celebrities use their fortune to buy outrageously extravagant homes--think multi-car garages, huge pools, more bedrooms than a hotel, state-of-the-art kitchens, and massive grounds--without giving much thought to the increase in their carbon footprint. (Note to these offenders: Your hybrid isn’t exactly canceling out your home energy use.) But we found seven celebrities whose homes reflect their passion for all things green--even if the square footage isn’t especially modest. And while we'd love to show you all the solar panels, sustainable-wood flooring, and environmental technologies these celebs have installed, most of them are (understandably) private about their homes--so you'll just have to take our word for it.

    1. Johnny Depp

    Though owning more than one home--especially when your second is on its own Caribbean island, thousands of miles from your first, in France--isn’t very eco-friendly, Johnny Depp has enlisted Mike Strizki to turn his 35-acre island getaway into a self-sustaining habitat run on solar-hydrogen power. No doubt the rest of his building plans will be equally energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable. Now if only he could do something about the commute…

    2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall

    Before Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall became famous for their comedic acting and writing on Saturday Night Live, Seinfeld, and The New Adventures of Old Christine, they were a pair of environmentally-minded Northwestern theater students. Now they share an energy-efficient Santa Barbara bungalow that includes a retractable roof, which stimulates airflow and negates the need for air conditioning; daylighting, to reduce the need for electric lights; and solar heating that’s put back into the grid when the house isn’t in use. The couple also had their contractor salvage all the pre-renovation wood since, as Hall told Grist, "Having a second home is itself a sort of appalling excess. We figured if we’re going to do it, we better be as responsible as we can."

    3. Daryl Hannah

    Known as much these days for her environmental passion as she is for her film work, actress Daryl Hannah spends her off-days in the Rocky Mountains, where her converted-stagecoach-stop home is almost entirely solar powered (a biodiesel generator provides backup power just in case). The off-grid dwelling sits next to a winterized barn (also solar powered) made of reclaimed wood, and inside, Hannah and her guests sit on a moss-covered stone that doubles as a couch.

    4. Julia Roberts

    Julia Roberts, husband Danny Moder, and the couple’s three children may share an over-sized, 6,000-square-foot home (complete with tennis court and pool, as shown in this photo), but the recent estimated $20 million green renovation--including recycled tiling and sustainable building materials--help keep the mansion's footprint restrained. Even better: three roofs’ worth of solar panels take advantage of that celebrity perk--living in Malibu--by harnessing the climate's natural energy.

    5. Orlando Bloom

    Maybe all that time together on the Pirates of the Caribbean set allowed some of Depp’s environmentalism to rub off on co-star Orlando Bloom: The Global Cool participant made his new-construction home in London as green as possible, with everything from solar panels to energy-efficient lightbulbs. He’s since said that the project required nearly twice as much money as he’d budgeted, but we’re sure the finished product will be well worth the cost.

    6. Ed Begley Jr.

    Actor Ed Begley, Jr., and his wife, Rachelle, prove their commitment to a green lifestyle on Living with Ed, where their eco-friendly home includes a picket fence made of recycled milk jugs, a solar-powered outdoor oven, and water-capturing rain barrels. On a mission to make their home as energy-efficient as possible, the couple takes notes on the eco-friendly abodes of friends Jackson Browne, Larry Hagman, and Cheryl Tiegs (among others)--but always returns to improve their own green space.

    7. Tricia Helfer

    Battlestar Galactica bombshell Tricia Helfer announced plans in February for an off-grid home in Alberta, Canada that will take advantage of solar energy (both passive and active), rainwater reuse, and energy-efficient heating. Meanwhile, the actress posts her plans, ideas, materials, and technologies at, where she updates readers on the progress of the home.
