• Hollywood mom Sophie Uliano wrote Gorgeously Green (with a foreword by pal Julia Roberts) for "women like me—who like shopping and manicures but are concerned about the planet." She shares:

SO WE CAN KEEP OUR NAIL POLISH? Yes! Just find nontoxic polish, which is readily available, and non-acetone remover.

HOW BAD IS DRY CLEANING? The chemicals can be carcinogenic. I prefer wet cleaners, who give the garment a proper wash but in a delicate manner.

SHOULD WE ALWAYS BUY ORGANIC? Pick one thing to start. If your family drinks a lot of milk, then go with organic milk. You'll feel empowered.

HOW GREEN IS JULIA? She started a compost. She packs a no-waste lunch for her children, and she takes reusable bags shopping—she has 15 of them. She's like, "Tell me what to do and I'll do it!" We're entirely like-minded.
