New mom, Kristen Bell, recently spoke with E! News about her eco-friendly lifestyle, favorite date night spot with husband, Dax Shepard, and more.

“It’s kind of become a fun game about how much I can reduce, reuse and recycle,” Bell said. “I can’t imagine that doesn’t sound like the dorkiest thing you’ve ever heard but it’s actually really fun for me figuring out that I can use the water that I wash my vegetables in, catch it in a bowl and dump it in my plants. It’s the little things like that make me feel good.”

The newlywed hopes her habits will inspire others to reduce, reuse and recycle. Earlier this month, Bell partnered with Neutrogena Naturals and the Nature Conservancy to launch the Every Drop Counts campaign in an effort to get people to reduce their water usage.

“We’re trying to get people to take very, very simple steps to save water,” she said. “You can pledge on the Neutrogena Facebook page to help save, and there’s prizes.”

When asked if she had any favorite green products, Bell was quick to point out her compost bin:

“I have a compost bin in my front yard. And I recently bought some fruit trees. And I think simply having an exposure to that cycle of the fruit tree or the cycle of the turnover of the compost helps me remain aware. That sounds so broad and philosophical, but it’s true.”

“There’s a new [snack] bar called This Bar Saves Lives. It’s like a “kind” bar. It’s started by a friend of mine. They’re so delicious. I ate every single sample he produced during my pregnancy. They’re so, so good. It’s a give-back company, so for every bar purchased a life-saving nutritional packet is given to a child in need.”

As for a favorite date night spot, Bell narrowed it down to two:

“There’s a delicious restaurant called Sage in Echo Park that’s actually all vegan but tons of non-vegans go there because the cuisine is so delicious. There’s also another really great one that’s farm-to-table, and the menu changes day by day depending what’s available from the few closest farms in Los Angeles, so they limit their environmental impact. It’s called Cortez.”

Bell stars in the new animated movie “Frozen,” scheduled for release on November 27.
