Buff Body of the Week... and why GREEN is the new Black

It's Earth Day and this week's Buff Body makes being green look so hot...

He's a shirtless staple in all of the gossip magazines, but people aren't talking about his moves on the big screen as much as they are oodling over his moves on the beach.

An avid surfer, runner and paddleboarder (check out his latest action pic in the April 26 issue of People) Matthew McConaughey is also one pretty green dude.

Star magazine reported that when McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves first found out they were going to be parents, they spent $1,200 on eco-friendly baby clothes, organic blankets and an untreated-wood crib.

Way to go Matt! Knowing this, I can almost forgive you for the $9.50 I spent to see "Fools Gold" and "Failure to Launch."

And now, my eco-friendly fashion report, starring Miley Cyrus and Audrina Patridge...

When it comes to Earth Day fashions, green is the new black.

Manufactured by the eco-friendly clothing line, Gypsy 05, Miley's top (Shreds Tunic Tee, $99) and Audrina's short pants (Nelly Silk Tube Jumper, $150) were both made with organic fabrics, low-impact dyes and water-based printing.

Inspired? Me, too. But since I can't actually afford a hundred dollar tunic, I'm going to dust off my old Hirachi sandals I bought in Mexico a few spring breaks ago (they weren't mass produced, so they should be eco-friendly, right?)


Well, if I did have a few bucks to spend in name of going green, then I would probably buy these sustainable and charitable products:

This graphic t-shirt made with organic cotton is so popular (since being featured in People StyleWatch magazine) that Los Angeles-based Kitson Boutique has sold out of their in-store inventory and now it is available only by pre-order.
FEED P4P Travel Bag & Skin Care Set, $95
Made from recycled nylon, the bag comes with Tammy Fender Holistic Skin Care line's Clay Body Wash and Tucuma Butter Body Balm. Proceeds from the sale of each bag supports farmers through the United Nations World Food Programme’s Purchase for Progress (P4P) initiative. The program was established to purchase food from local farmers to feed hungry people in under served regions around the world.
