james van der beek

As Earth Day approaches this Sunday James Van Der Beek, former star “Dawson’s Creek” heart throb and star of “Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23″ are well-prepared for the event. In fact, so is their humble abode.

Van Der Beek described his solar-heated pool to E! Online. “It works pretty well in the summer. It doesn’t work quite so well in the wintertime. It’s old school: the panels go up on a heating coil on the roof and the sun heats it and it goes back down,” he said.

Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly follow all the rules of ecological living.  They purchase organic products, drive a diesel car,  use non-toxic cleaning products, and are big on recycling. In fact, Kimberly Van Der Beek told ecofabulous that “The most fun is letting your trash become another person’s treasure.” She shared suggestions for 10 eco-friendly baby products on the eBay Green Team blog. Kimberly even makes her own almond milk. Now how cool is that?

James Van Der Beek’s obsession with healthy living did not come out of left field. Like seductive songstress Madonna, and perpetually glamorous movie star Demi Moore, he has been studying Kabbalah, a mystical practice which links spirituality to health and well-being.

Ah ha! So that’s their beauty secret!
