Whether we live in Hollywood, Calif., or Hollywood, Fla., we all want the same thing — health, says actress and author Mariel Hemingway.

The granddaughter of writer Ernest Hemingway found fame in the early ’80s for her movie roles. But in the past few years, she’s become well known as an advocate for healthy, green living. Currently, she’s working with the non-profit organization Healthy Child Healthy World and eco-friendly countertop-maker Cambria to promote healthy choices in the home. Our lifestyle decisions, she says, do not always contribute to good health. “We say we want faster and easier lives, but the result is slower and sadder because of foods and products we use.”

Health-focused home …


This is an interesting how things are changing.

Not so long time ago most of us wouldn’t even had a single thought about ‘green’ home to live in and now the health side of living in an eco house becomes important. I hope for it to turn into standard because it will benefit us all. I’m a strong evangelist of building eco-friendly, healthy, self-sustainable with 0-carbon footprint houses.

My wish is for every person living on the planet to have an eco-friendly house but being more realistic – lets have them everywhere where someone can benefit from having one. At the time of writing, my first port of call is the UK 🙂
