Jessica Alba, with her husband Cash Warren and their two daughters Honor and Haven, talks about having an eco-friendly lifestyle as a family.
“First and foremost, we try to model and practice eco-friendly habits for the girls,” Alba said. “Otherwise, we talk to them about being mindful and explain that things can be turned into something else one day. This can be as simple as teaching them about recyclables and showing how to sort bottles and cans from trash.”
She also added that for fun crafts with the children, they like to make paper airplanes and other creative toys out of old cardboard boxes, as it shows the children how to repurpose old items. The process is fun and educational.
“Involving children in gardening and cooking is another great way to inspire eco-friendly living,” Alba shared. “Caring for the plants in our herb wall garden helps Honor understand the steps to growing food (including patience!), how it ultimately lands on her plate, and about being a good steward of the planet.”
