In the era of pink slime and unregulated BPA in everything, it’s not super-easy to avoid chemicals and toxins in the stuff that we buy in stores–especially when it comes to baby products.

And while most of us just try to do the best we can to be eco-friendly by compulsively reading labels, some people (read: celebrities) have the means to do something about it…like Jessica Alba, who recently started The Honest Company, a non-toxic, natural line of diapers, baby gear, and cleaning supplies.

Still relatively new, the company is using the combined star-power of both Alba and co-founder Christopher Gavigan, who is an author, parent, and eco-friendly guy himself, and who happens to be married to actor Jessica Capshaw, of Grey’s Anatomy fame.

But why would a busy working actor and parent take on something as arduous as starting a company? Because, Alba says, it was just that important.
