It's always nice to see stars using their fame for good, but too often their good intentions are just a way to camouflage products that don't live up to their reputation. Not here: These products were created and developed by celebrities, and are guaranteed green. So whether you're stocking your closet, your pantry, your makeup bag, your cleaning supplies, or your shoe rack, turn to these companies for an eco-friendly--and celeb-approved--solution.

1. Edun by Bono and Ali Hewson

Edun isn’t just about eco-friendly fibers--although they do offer men's and women's organic tees, denim, and dresses--Bono and his wife Ali Hewson founded the line to support the development of communities in Africa, South America, and India, in countries including Peru, Kenya, India, Mauritius, Tunisia, and Madagascar. The clothes are produced in locally-owned factories--though Edun monitors them--and provide these nations with sustainable industries that allow them to trade on an international scale. Better working conditions and safer materials mean a greener product, and the results are healthier for the workers and the environment.

2. Josie Maran Cosmetics by Josie Maran

Leave it to a model to make eco-friendly cosmetics accessible to everyone: After 10 years of having her famous face on magazine covers, print ads, and in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, motherhood inspired Josie Maran to develop her own line of non-toxic makeup, Josie Maran Cosmetics. The moisturizer, blush, eye shadow, mascara, liner, lip gloss, and more are made without parabens, petrochemicals, animal testing, or fragrances, and even the packaging is recyclable or biodegradable. And although the products aren’t certified organic, Maran intends to keep up with changing technology in the cosmetics industry: "I have reformulated before and I am reformulating some products now to make them even healthier," she told TreeHugger's Jasmin in May. "There is always going to be newer greener chemistry and I’m committed to keeping up with it."

3. Fashion by Stella McCartney

Her designs are entirely animal-free (even the bags and shoes use plant-derived fibers instead of leather), and her organic skin product line, Care, steers clear of endangered plants, petrochemicals, parabens, and fragrances. Last summer, McCartney launched her first organic collection, complete with underwear, dresses, coats, and tops.

4. Begley’s Best cleaner by Ed Begley, Jr.

And he’s equally as enthusiastic about getting his famous friends to do the same--which may be part of why he made it easier for them to keep their homes environmentally-friendly with his Begley’s Best cleanser. The all-purpose cleaner is made from "extracts of pine, maize, fermented sugar cane roots, and olive seeds," and the company claims all the ingredients will biodegrade within a week. It's designed for anything that you’d use water on--tile, counters, stainless steel, wood, leather, plastic, and even fabrics--which means one spray bottle might just replace your entire cleaning bucket.
