Jessica Alba shows her Green Home

In Style Magazine did an article on Jessica Alba sometime ago that I wanted to share with you!.

Although, I am not a fan of her I applaud her commitment for living green and taking it to the next level! More power to her!

What inspired me from this article is that you can actually build a beautiful green house. Obviously, there are different levels of green...her house does not run on solar power but she did as much as I think any of us can do at our own houses. At the end, you can have a green house by just simple not buying new furniture, painting with chemically free products and other tiny changes...


They chose a saltwater pool...the best way to avoid swinging in chemicals. Specially, if you have kids since it does not irritate the eyes as chlorine does. And you can close your eyes, taste the water and picture yourself somewhere in the Caribbean!
Believe or not they used synthetic turf..I know this is the way to go (no maintenance required and no pesticide) but I am not there yet. I am more for living a more greener natural life...sorry no fake for me!

They decorated the house using all recycle furniture from antique stores, flea markets and Alba's previous furniture!

Another green choice..no carpet! A couple of years ago I took away the carpet from my house and I am so happy with the decision. Overall, in addition to all the chemicals found in carpet I just think that they are just dirty and much more high maintenance.

Do you like her green house? and her green choices?

OT: Sasha, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for giving me the Lemonade Award! I really appreciate it, and am very honored! I wasn't sure if we were allowed to give it back to the blog/person who gave it to us, otherwise I would have given it back to you...do you know the rules for sure? Can we do that?
