Gwyneth Paltrow

“I love using organic products, like the beauty brand Vapour.”

Aubrey Plaza

“I’m pretty good about not drinking bottled water. When I’m working on Parks and Recreation, we all have thermoses so that there’s not so much waste.”

Benedict Cumberbatch

“I walk, I cycle, and I take public transportation. When I’m driving, I always make sure I’m with someone else.”

Shailene Woodley

“I’m always conscious of what I choose to buy new. I love to shop at thrift stores, which is like recycling! It’s also cheaper and fun. You’re going to be wearing something that nobody else has.”

Elisabeth Moss

“I’m a big fan of reusing bags. I’m a big tote bag person. I also love green products; all-natural products are better, and they smell better too!”

Garcelle Beauvais

“We’re changing all our lightbulbs out at our house. I taught my children not to leave a light on when they’re not in the room.”

Seth Meyers

“We don’t have bottled water at the office, so we use glasses and go to the bubbler.”

Rachel Zoe

“My kids only eat organic and everything in our house is made of wood. My husband also has a Tesla, which is a full hybrid electric — it’s not just hybrid, it’s electric too!”

Ahna O'Reilly

“I live in LA, where everyone drives, so I try to walk whenever I can.”

Monica Potter

“I do a lot of my own gardening and composting. I’m from Ohio so I like all the homegrown stuff — it’s a hobby of mine that I try to turn into something more responsible.”

Josh Radnor

“I have a tankless water heater and an electric car.”
