Celebrity Eco-Advice on Living Green

Suggestions from celebrities on how to live green

While writing the blog The Green Carpet, I've come across many celebrities who are trying to get their families to be more earth-friendly. I asked them to share their eco-advice with our readers.

Get a live tree for Christmas and plant it. — Daryl Hannah, actress and activist

Ride a bike, if weather and fitness permit. Take public transportation, if it's available. — Ed Begley, Jr., actor and activist

Once a month my 8-year-old and I go to feed the homeless. It teaches him that if you don't finish a meal, you take it home and eat it later. Not wasting has more meaning for him. — Elizabeth Rogers, coauthor of The Green Book

I recently organized a tree planting with our son's school. I like the tipu tree. It grows really fast — in three years it will be huge. — David Zucker, director of Scary Movie 3 and 4; has been a TreePeople board member since 1993

There is so much families can do, including simple acts like buying only recycled tissues, toilet paper, etc., and breaking the plastic bottle habit by drinking out of a refillable metal bottle. — Laurie David, environmental activist

Curiosity is a great driver of change. Families should go for a walk in the park and get lost in nature! —David de Rothschild, founder, Adventure Ecology

We have a joke in our house that wasting energy kills the penguins. When somebody slips up, we always say, "The penguins, for the love of God, the penguins!" And of course, that person runs and shuts off the source of the wasted power. —Jason Alexander, actor, director, and activist
