snipshot_b8qs9jxo4.jpgIn the latest issue of The Green Guide, Meryl Streep has dished on her favorite green products — from apparel to bedding to, um, water bottles.

Meryl kindly offers some practical advice for people dipping their toes in green waters for the first time. “At the same time, as a working parent, I know it’s difficult to consider the earth when you’re just trying to get dinner on the table. The good news is that going green is easier and more affordable than ever: Mainstream retailers are committing to organic food and fibers and selling certified forest products. Also, fair trade labels, which protect workers’ livelihoods, are on the rise.”

Whatcha readin’, Meryl?

“Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and for the post-holiday diet, Marion Nestle’s What to Eat?. Two global warming must-reads: Elizabeth Kolbert’s elegiac Field Notes from a Catastrophe and Eugene Linden’s gripping The Winds of Change.”

What should I buy my wife?

“Moonrise, a small Virginia company, crafts fairly traded silver into earrings and necklaces ($18-125 at www.moonrisejewelry.com).”

Very nice. For the full list and some advice on finding that perfect organic pillow, hit The Green Guide!

Thanks to Chris for the tip.
