Laura Dern On Less Is More

March 5, 2008 at 5:23 am Leave a comment

There’s a good interview with Laura Dern in Delicious Living this month (the free mag you get at certain natural groceries) about how she is supporting an organization called Healthy Child, Healthy World that works to create healthy environments (particularly toxin-free homes) for children.

Dern talks in the interview about how she has always questioned having products in the home that must be locked up because they are poison, a thought that solidified with her once she had kids (her hubby is musician Ben Harper and they have two kids).

She describes her family’s “less is more” mantra; gotta love that.  It’s a nice, easy mantra to remember when making any buying decision, or planning decision, or any decision really. Less is more. It works.

And Dern also says she cleans with vinegar and lavendar oil (OK, do you think she really cleans her own house?).  Maybe I need to make that next step from the “natural” cleaning products (Seventh Generation, BioKleen, Mrs. Meyers) I buy now!
