First, she went one-on-one with Dita Von Teese, delving into the queen of burlesque's accidentally eco love of vintage.

Then, Hollywood's green girl, Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff of
ecostiletto.com, got actress Amy Smart to fess up to the eco-unfriendly habit that she just can't kick.

Now, Sarnoff strikes again, talking to "Entourage" star
Emmanuelle Chriqui about the star's favorite upcycled fashion line.

So, without further ado, here's Rachel.

As an actress, Emmanuelle Chriqui is all over the map: She starred as a pregnant porn star in the SXSW-debuted indie film "Electra Luxx," will next be seen on the big screen in Renny Harlan's political thriller "Georgia," and is best known for playing Sloan on "Entourage."

But I was surprised to find out just how single-minded her commitment is to the causes that she passionately supports, like RAISE Hope for Congo and the Environmental Media Association's Young Hollywood Board, when I spoke with Chriqui after she helped launch EMA's School Gardens Program.

"I've always been attracted to the alternative lifestyle, meaning organic and natural and alternative healing," Chriqui reveals, after confessing that her 1988 Prius purchase inspired a whole new eco-chapter in her life.

The girl practically lives in haute new upcycled fashion line Alexx Jae for Milk, and wishes she could wear oh-so-eco-friendly bamboo all the time. "I don't understand why everybody doesn't want to dress that way; it feels amazing-softer than the softest old T-shirt!" she said.

"But you can't just use something because it's good for the environment," Chriqui revealed. "It's got to feel good." Her secret to living sustainably? Baby steps. "Give yourself a little goal each month," she told me. "That's the most effective thing you can do."

That's not to say the girl doesn't slip up once in a while. To find out more about Emmanuelle Chriqui's eco-sins (as well as her eco-idols), read my interview in its entirety on EcoStiletto's EcoCelebrity page.
