Jessica Alba has continued to impress us with her dedication and entrepreneurial spirit when it comes to her business, The Honest Company, which produces nontoxic household essentials that are also adorable.

We may celebrate Earth Day once a year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t practice sustainability on a regular basis. Here are some environmental tips from Giselle Achecar, Puerto Rican eco expert and founder of EcoRicoTV:
Consider your morning routine. When you get up and go to the bathroom, reduce your water usage by turning off the water when you brush your teeth. Get low-flush toilets and showerheads. Also, make sure to turn off the all the lights when you leave the room.

It makes total sense since Earth Day is this Friday and Easter is just two days later; What better way to celebrate the religious holiday than by going green?

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Big Foot. Now my size eight kicks are fairly average, but that’s not my issue. My issue is that while I talk a good environmental talk, I am disastrous to the environment. That’s hard to admit. I thought I was doing a lot of good by compulsively recycling, freezing my tail off at home (which is also work) to reduce gas use, and buying a car with good gas mileage.
