Jessica Alba conserves water with turf lawn

Actress Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren are among the eco-friendliest couples in Hollywood. Inspired by her baby daughters Honor and Haven, Alba recently launched her own start-up called the Honest Co., which sells all-natural baby products like diapers and lotion (pictured above).

That dedication to environmentalism also extends to their home, where the Pomona-born Alba recently installed an artificial grass lawn instead of natural grass to save water.

"We have a lot of water shortages in Southern California and I grew up with having to take a bath in (a little) water and (people saying), ‘Don't flush the toilet unless it's, you know...’ Alba told Contact Music recently. “There are all these rules that you just sort of live by when you live with droughts... and when you have turf you don't have to water your lawn at all.”
