Alicia Silverstone needs a break — or maybe just a shower. And though the new mom admitted that she doesn’t have time for a luxurious bath, one thing she does make time for is dedicating herself to an eco-conscious lifestyle.
During a recent event promoting her EcoTools collection, Alicia, who welcomed son Bear Blu 6 months ago with husband Christopher Jarecki, told PEOPLE: “I have so little time to even take a shower. Maybe there will be a time where I’m making brownies for my kids and making soap, and that’s all I’m doing.”
She also admitted that it did take her some time to find truly eco-friendly products, saying, “It took so much effort to find out what products aren’t tested on animals — that was an ordeal. But then when I became into eco, it took out all of that: if you’re using all-natural products that have no toxic chemicals, it narrows the playing field. Shoes are a little trickier, but they exist. I’m trying to save the planet. I’m trying to save our lives.”
