Rachelle Carson-Begley, wife of Ed Begley, Jr. and co-star of the Planet Green reality series Living With Ed, recently sat down with Celebrity Baby Scoop to dish the inside story on the couple’s daughter, their green lifestyle, and eco-friendly suggestions for busy moms.

Carson-Begley explains that the family is “mostly a vegetarian household” and lives in a traditional—with the exception of the solar panels on the roof—San Fernando Valley home with a yard filled with fruit trees and a vegetable garden. The actress says that they are still connected to the grid which is a necessity “occasionally if it rains a lot” and in order to power their electric car.

The most important thing for eco-minded moms to do, according to Carson-Begley, is to look around the house for toxins. “Look under your sinks and look what you are exposing yourself and your children to. Something like Fantastic or Tilex works instantaneously, but look at the downsides of those chemicals going into your water stream. You are breathing those chemicals and they are going onto your skin.”
