Inside InStyle's February issue, we spoke to Jessica Alba about starting her eco-friendly family brand, The Honest Company—and now, her first Honest book is on sale to go with it. The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You is the actress's tip-filled guide to all the lessons she's learned along the way to becoming an environmental entrepreneur, from when she started creating "high-performance and safe" products to when she lobbied Congress to support the Safe Chemicals Act. "I'm a mom on the go, and I have to do a million things," said the actress, who has two daughters, 4-year-old Honor and 1-year-old Haven (pictured). "I'm not going to sit there and read every single ingredient on every single package I buy, and I don't think other parents are either. Creating this company was something I had to do." And sharing her experience is, too! To learn more about Alba's natural way of living, pick up The Honest Life for $16 at
