While Cher Horowitz likely can’t claim to own vegan leather or faux fur, actress-turned-author-turned-eco-lifestyle-guru Alicia Silverstone wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything that even alluded to animal cruelty. After sitting comfortably on the New York Times Bestseller list for her book The Kind Diet, Silverstone realized how powerful her vegan words of wisdom were and took over the blog community with The Kind Life. Her goal is to make the transition from conventional lifestyle to conscious lifestyle an easy and enjoyable one. Through her recipes, fashion tips and giveaways, parental advice, and other eco tips, Silverstone is fabulously convincing that an earth-friendly life is not only the “right thing to do” but an opulent lifestyle. But don’t worry, this know-it-all is anything but an extremist. In fact, I’ve found that if you read her pieces in a Cher voice, you’ll feel happily peer-pressured into taking her fun suggestions.
