For its tenth Sexiest Vegetarian awards, PETA looked to the small screen, singling out two of television's favorite characters: The Biggest Loser's Bob Harper and House's Olivia Wilde.Harper, who helps motivate and guide contestants on NBC's weight loss show, follows a vegan diet that, he says, got his cholesterol to drop by 100 points. And Wilde, who made her rounds at the hospital with Dr. House, is also a vegan because, she says, "Beyond my desire to boycott the torture factories, I am also way happier when I eat a plant-based diet, and I feel about a thousand times more energetic." The actress also just launched her own website, Wilde Things, where she promotes her favorite projects, products, and lifestyle tips. (Via Ecorazzi )
Emmanuelle Chriqui Keeps a Green Focus
As EcoStiletto points out, Entourage's Emmanuelle Chriqui takes on roles in everything from political thrillers to indie films, but, offscreen, she's committed to eco-friendly living and social causes. From her love for bamboo t-shirts and upcycled fashion lines to her work with Raise Hope for Congo and the Environmental Media Association, Chriqui says she's been interested in an organic lifestyle as long as she can remember -- but that it doesn't have to happen all at once. "Take it one step at a time," she says. "I feel like we need to make little goals for ourselves. You can't do it all because it's totally overwhelming...Take baby step. That's the most effective thing you can do." (Via EcoStiletto)
Soleil Moon Frye Brings Organic Baby Gear to Target
When former Punky Brewster Soleil Moon Frye couldn't find enough organic goods for her new baby, she took on the task herself and opened The Little Seed in Los Angeles with one of her friends. The store stocks sustainable versions of everything baby needs, from clothing and body care to toys and gifts, and now the products will be available to moms who live outside L.A. through a partnership between the store owners and Target. The brightly colored clothes, booties, hats, and blankets, which are made of 100% organic cotton, land in stores this Sunday. (Via Mother Nature Network)
Jessica Simpson: Vegan?
Though one of Jessica Simpson's most famous moments came from her wondering about the difference between chicken and fish, she might not have to make that distinction for much longer: This week, she Tweeted about her new vegan diet, mentioning her first experience with tofu (which she dipped in ketchup), drinking Pu-erh tea, and natural healing through cupping with a teacher named Master Wang. She also defended her health, saying, "Just so everyone is clear...this has NOTHING to do with weight! It is about understanding my body through hydration and alkalinity," according to Us Weekly. But since cutting meat out of your diet can cut your annual carbon footprint by as much as two tons, we hope Simpson appreciates the full impact of her food choices.
