flowerWe’ve pretty much reached the saturation point in covering Jessica Alba’s green nursery plans. But just to cap it all off (and kudos to the media for promoting her eco-ambitions), Celebrity Baby Blog have posted a full scan from US Weekly of Alba’s completed baby room.

Groovy. [via TIME]

    I am in love with Jessica Alba’s nursery! I love NurseryWorks furniture, and I love that she has the consciousness to try to protect her baby from the toxic chemicals in so many baby products.
