Kyra Sedgwick Up Close
Sedgwick is a longtime environmentalist and a member of the Natural Resources Defense Council. We asked her for some everyday ways that people can make a difference.
BAG IT: "Take your own reusable, foldable bags instead of plastic to the grocery store. Envirosax.com has some great options."
SKIP BOTTLED WATER: "Plastic bottles never ever break down. I drink tap water from a stainless-steel bottle instead."
TURN ON AN ENERGY-EFFICIENT LIGHTBULB: "You have to dispose of them carefully but using one saves a lot of energy."
