This story is part of The Hollywood Reporter’s 2023 Sustainability Issue (click here to read more).
It’s not easy being green, but adding small, eco-conscious hacks — such as ones adopted by Hollywood — can simplify the switch to a more sustainable lifestyle.
Drew Barrymore has signed on as Grove Collaborative‘s first global brand ambassador and sustainability advocate, joining Emma Roberts in supporting the sustainable online retailer, which stocks zero-waste cleaning products, vegan skincare, ethically sourced home goods and more. Aquaman star Jason Momoa recently launched the zero-plastic bottled water company Mananalu, and he has shared his love for plastic-free products such as Bite toothpaste bits and Soapbox coconut oil shampoo bars.
The red carpet is also being used as a platform for sustainability. Cate Blanchett, with the help of stylist Elizabeth Stewart, has pledged to recycle previously worn looks or wear archived and upcycled pieces this awards season and beyond. And actresses Zoe Saldaña, Nikki Reed, Chloe East, Bailey Bass and others are ambassadors of Suzy Amis Cameron’s RCGD (Red Carpet Green Dress) Global, which recently created a Sustainable Style Guide with the Oscars to encourage Academy Awards attendees and others to be more eco-conscious with their wardrobe.

Pre-loved pieces from vintage shops and online resale sites are among the hacks in fashion insiders’ arsenals. “You just don’t overlook anything.

Once you’re ready to replace your worn-out threads, opt for pieces from designers and brands that use upcycled and recycled materials to keep fashion waste out of landfills.
