Organic Living with Emily Deschanel (w/ Scans!)

Sorry for taking so long to post this! This is I think one of the best interviews I've read. It's focused on her, no Bones in it, and the interviewer was great at linking her answers to the next question.

It’s one thing to talk the eco-friendly talk. But as Bones star Emily Deschanel climbs out of her Prius, it’s clear that this is a woman who also walks the walk. Although her character, Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, is a buttoned-up anthropologist focused on the small, crime-solving details in life, Emily, 32, sees the much bigger picture.

Are there any ways you wish you could be more green?
Well, I want to do solar panels on my house. I think it’s important to speak up for the environment because the Earth is not saying something. [Laughs.] I mean, it is, but it is saying things to us in its own way. It makes a big difference to recycle. It makes a big difference to use recycled products. It makes a big difference to reuse things, to not use the paper cup—and each time you do, that’s a victory. (...)

When and where do you feel happiest?
When I’m surrounded by my friends and family. Around the holidays I had some friends over, and we were in my dining room eating food, drinking wine, and sharing stories. I love looking at a beautiful sunset, too … and that sounds so cheeseball! But I like to be surprised by a sunset, I guess, when you never expect it.

I knew her sister was really eco friendly, I didn't know Emily was too. That's really great of her.
