It's been one year since Jessica Alba first unveiled The Honest Company, a feel-good line of environmentally friendly home, body and baby products; and what better way to celebrate a successful entrepreneur endeavor than with a brand new book enveloping her entire lifestyle?
The Honest Life, a comprehensive guide that covers food, home, beauty, style, parenting and more, hit shelves this week, and we had the opportunity to sit down with the savvy star at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood amidst fresh flowers from The Bouqs to get the scoop on how her eco-empire first began.
