josie maranYou know someone is in touch with green-living when they brag about giving birth to their daughter in their own backyard. Such is the case with actress/model Josie Maran (Van Helsing, The Aviator), who had the “natural” experience last year and is now working to add to her green values with a new all-natural, non-toxic line of cosmetics that’s set to launch this September. In addition, Marin revealed to Style.com some easy tips on staying eco-friendly from moisturizing to laundry. Below are some highlights from the interview:

On Moisturizing
Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Oil
is my favorite moisturizer for skin, hair, and nails. It’s a 100 percent organic wonder. It’s packaged in a recyclable glass bottle and is purchased from women’s cooperatives in Morocco. These cooperatives also work within a UNESCO biosphere reserve, which ensures the protection and reforestation of argan trees.

On Laundry
My daughter loves getting messy. Instead of bleach, I use citrus on stains. Just rubbing and rinsing with a lemon or lime followed by a little drying time in the sun does the trick.

For Easy Style
My boyfriend, Ali Alborzi, has a clothing line called Evidence of Evolution. They make the coolest dresses and shirts for women, plus shirts and hoodies for men. They’re locally designed and sewn in Los Angeles—they even have an organic line—and will be selling at Barneys this fall.

Lights Out
Legna sheets are so silky and soft you will never want to leave your bed. This relatively new fiber is made from wood grown in managed forests in Italy.

    You go Josie! I truly believe, all the rich and famous have a huge responsibility to spread the green message through their life examples. The common man may not believe Al, but is more likely to listen to a celebrity. That is how America works.
