Actress and eco-business owner Jessica Alba is teaching her girls how to recycle and give back to those in need in one step.

The star talked to People.com about her parenting skills and explained how she goes about getting her kids involved with charity work and making eco-friendly choices.

She said, “I talk to Honor about not wasting and recycling. I talk to her about having so many things and that there are children out there who don’t have what she has. So when she is done playing with something or outgrows something…it goes to a baby who doesn’t have it.”

At three years old, we’d say Honor is getting a good head start on using her privilege to help others. Alba’s younger daughter Haven is just thirteen months old, so probably isn’t aware yet that her Mommy donates the clothes she has outgrown to other babies. But, we’re sure as soon as she’s old enough, she’ll be helping her mom choose which outfits she wants to donate.
