Danny Collins star Jennifer Garner stepped out with daughter Violet, 9, in Brentwood, Calif. on Tuesday (April 21). After picking up her eldest child from school, the Alias alum, 43, took her daughter to a nearby bookstore to purchase some new reading material.
On Sunday (April 19), Jen’s husband, Academy Award-winner Ben Affleck, was spotted at the farmers’ market in Pacific Palisades with the couple’s 6-year-old daughter Seraphina.
The A-list couple are also parents to 3-year-old son Samuel.
While at the Just Label It Anti-GMO Event in L.A. on Monday, Jennifer talked about the importance of food labels.
“I cook for my kids, and we have a garden,” the mother-of-three told Us Weekly. “We try to grow whatever we can, although I can’t say we have the hugest crop in the world, but I do try to pay close attention and I do my best.”
As for her culinary skills, the actress enjoys making a wide variety of meals for her family-of-five.
“I make everything,” she said. “Roasted chicken and mashed potatoes, gravy, homemade bread, corn on the cob, you know, whatever.”
But the kids weren’t too pleased to lend their mom to the good cause.
“They weren’t thrilled tonight when I came to see you guys, so right now I’m not asking for their vote,” Jennifer said of leaving her kids at home on a school night. “But we talk about our food, we grow food, we talk about what goes into it. They planted it, they water it, they take pictures next to it.”
It was fellow celebrity mom, Gisele Bündchen, that told the actress about Just Label It.
“My friend Gisele and I are fed up with being kept in the dark about GMO and non-GMO labeling,” Jennifer told E! News at the event. “I got involved because she said, ‘Do you know what’s happening?’ She’s a firecracker. She said, ‘You have to educate yourself.’”
On April 22, more than one billion people around the globe will participate in Earth Day. From Gisele Bündchen to Jessica Alba, let’s take a look at 4 green celebrity moms who inspire others to protect Mother Nature.
Actress Jessica Alba and husband Cash Warren are parents to two daughters: Honor, 6½ and Haven, 3½.
Shortly after her second daughter arrived, the Fantastic Four star partnered with Christopher Gavigan, dad-of-two and founder of Healthy Child Healthy World, to create The Honest Company, an online source to purchase eco-friendly baby/kid products.
The Sin City actress opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about how she encourages her girls to minimize their carbon footprint.
“First and foremost, we try to model and practice eco-friendly habits for the girls,” she shared. “Otherwise, we talk to them about being mindful and explain that things can be turned into something else one day. This can be as simple as teaching them about recyclables and showing how to sort bottles and cans from trash.”
She added: “We also do a lot of DIY crafts like using cardboard boxes to make airplanes and dollhouses—our creative playtime together similarly shows the girls about repurposing old items.” The mom-of-two is all about living eco-friendly on a daily basis.
“Involving children in gardening and cooking is another great way to inspire eco-friendly living,” she said. “Caring for the plants in our herb wall garden helps Honor understand the steps to growing food (including patience!), how it ultimately lands on her plate, and about being a good steward of the planet.”
“Honor is also a great sous chef when we’re in the kitchen, so being a part of the dinner process encourages her to eat the foods she grows and develops her taste for fresh ingredients,” she continued. “Hopefully, this lays the foundation for children to prioritize their health and that of the planet.”
The Clueless star was seen feeding her then 11-month-old son Bear Blu mouth-to-mouth on her eco-friendly blog The Kind Life.
She wrote: “I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite…and mine.”
Alicia and her husband Christopher Jarecki live in a Los Angeles home with solar panels and an organic vegetable garden. The actress is an advocate for animal rights and environmental issues and became a vegan in 1998. She shares her eco-friendly tips on her official website.
“The Kind Life is an interactive extension of my book, “The Kind Diet”, which is about living your healthiest and happiest life to the fullest, while taking care of mama Earth at the same time!,” Alicia writes on her blog. “The site is whatever you make of it; whether it’s joining the many others who are on this same journey or simply visiting to gather information and other tips. Whatever you need, you will find it here. I will be sharing all kinds of tasty morsels with you; from fashion and beauty tips, to simple ways that we can help the planet!

Alicia is also vocal about elimination communication, the eco-friendly potty training technique coined by Ingrid Bauer, author of Diaper Free! The Gentle Wisdom of Natural Infant Hygiene.
“When Bear Blu was 5-months-old,” the proud mama tweeted, “[S]aturday bear blu went poo and pee on toilet 4x throughout the day…we were so proud! “Check out book Diaper Free..soo fun!” The actress added, “yesterday bear did 2 poops in toilet….so sweet! i’m saving so many diapers…even cloth ones….yahoooo! and it’s so fun!”
Supermodel mom Gisele Bündchen has long been an advocate of going green. The Brazilian beauty says that her children – Benjamin, 5, Vivian, 2, and 7-year-old stepson Jack – have made the importance of the message really hit home.
“I had my first munchkin, Jack (husband Tom Brady’s son with Bridget Moynahan), before I gave birth to Benjamin,” Gisele said. “After spending so much time with Jack I saw how he wanted to play with the stuff I was using instead of the toys we bought him. In terms of clothes, I bought Jack so many clothes and am now using them for Benjamin. Look, when I was growing up my sisters and I wore hand-me-downs and am now doing the same thing. This all goes back to my motto: Reduce, recycle and reuse. The more we buy the more we encourage the manufacturers to produce more stuff.”
Also a fan of elimination communication, Gisele said Benjamin was potty trained at 6-months-old!
How did she do it? The model mom said that her son was on a schedule including breastfeeding in the morning and afternoon, promptly followed by a bowel movement, making it easy for her to put him on the toilet and eliminate the use of a diaper.
Of the process she said,
“Give it about five minutes, and bang,” admitting with a laugh that she realizes the process is actually, “more complicated.”
Pretty WomanJulia Roberts lives a green lifestyle in her sustainably-designed home which is solar powered and built with woods from responsibly-managed forests. And she helps spread the word about the importance of making eco-friendly choices in interviews and by practicing what she preaches.
“Motherhood is the big reason I started thinking more critically about the environment and global warming,” Julia said.
The mom to 10-year-old twins Hazel and Finn and son Henry, 7 1/2, with husband Danny Moder, talked about eco-friendly tips when their kids were in diapers.
“We make a lot of garbage,” Julia said. “How can we make less garbage? This is our plight. I use Seventh Generation (chlorine-free, non-toxic) diapers for Finn and Hazel, and then I was turned on to the (plastic-free, flushable) gDiapers [for Henry]. It is flushable, but you’ve got to stir that thing! If you don’t really break it all the way up, it doesn’t go all the way down.”
In addition to her waste-management solutions, the actress totes her reusable canvas bags to all of her shopping excursions, uses only organic household cleaners, and reportedly cuts back on showering to help conserve water.
And she says being green can be fun!
“The children love it and I think it’s the best training for them,” Julia said. “I think when children know their food sources they’re more inclined to eat what they’re growing because they’re so proud of it. To watch my kids eat kale is a pretty proud moment for me as a mom.”
