Spending Earth Day with Elisabeth Röhm; greening the inside out
You recognise her from Law & Order or lately The Client List, but Elisabeth Rohm is the quintessential girl next door; she’s beautiful, she’s smart, she’s funny, and she’s disarmingly honest. Whether its sharing her infertility journey in her new book Baby Steps: Having the Child I Always Wanted (Just Not as I Expected) or the fact that she doesn’t always ‘get’ eco-fashion and how to be 100% green from head to toe.
Raised in a hippy household, an upbringing that imprinted on her strongly; she’s been a vegetarian for as long as she can remember, keeps a chemical-free home, drives a Prius – and is a woman who is dedicated to green living.
“Living an eco-lifestyle simply means having a future. Not only for myself, but also for our children and our children’s children.”
So much so, that this past year she opened Rejuice, a Santa Monica juice bar that serves vegetarian and vegan eats alongside made-to-order organic pressed juices (in glass bottles. Bring your bottle back and they’ll refill it). Healthy offerings like orange-carrot, watermelon-mint, and beet-apple-celery.
“I am committed to serving others and living in a dharmic way. It gives me joy knowing that people are benefitting from a healthy diet and lifestyle.”
With that in mind, we wanted to give her some eco-fashion tips that would help match the inside out.
