Marie Claire’s July cover girl Cameron Diaz traveled across America with MC Executive Editor Lucy Kaylin to learn what worries us most about the environment. The eco-friendly superstar’s documentary raises awareness about our relationship to the planet. Here’s a list of her favorite green websites:

Shiftyourhabit.com gives insights on how to go green and save by providing research-based, cost-effective, and easy-to-implement tips. Its goal is to show people how small shifts in their daily behavior can lead to big change for their wallet, their schedule and their world.

The vision for Be the Change, Inc. is an America in which every citizen aspires to that highest office, by working shoulder to shoulder with one another, by actively participating in the conversations, debates and elections which set public policy, by taking responsibility for the democracy we all share.

Ideal Bite offers bite-sized ideas for light green living - ideas for real people who lead busy lives and want to make small changes that add up to big results. Its mission is to create a more sustainable world by connecting enlightened companies with responsible consumers who are ready to make small changes that add up.

The Daily Green’s mission is to broaden the audience for earth-friendly living by showing how going green is relevant to everyone. It features daily news, tips, seasonal recipes and community photos.

Waterkeeper Alliance connects and supports local Waterkeeper programs to provide a voice for waterways and their communities worldwide. To champion clean water and strong communities, Waterkeeper Alliance:
1. Supports and empowers member Waterkeeper organizations to protect communities, ecosystems and water quality
2. Promotes the Waterkeeper model for watershed protection worldwide
3. Advocates for issues common to Waterkeeper programs

foodincmovie.com and takepart.com
Food, Inc. is a documentary that exposes America's industrialized food system and its effect on our environment, health, economy and workers' rights. Takepart.com gives more information about these issues and shows how you can take action.

Local Harvest is America's #1 organic and local food website. We maintain a definitive and reliable "living" public nationwide directory of small farms, farmers markets, and other local food sources.

Earth911.com is your one-stop shop for all you need to know about reducing your impact, reusing what you’ve got and recycling your trash. They provide daily news, weekly feature stories, product channels and weekly emails.

Tip from Cameron: This is a great site to find out how to recycle in your own area.

The mission of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment. EWG specializes in providing useful resources to consumers while simultaneously pushing for national policy change.

Beyond Pesticides (formerly National Coalition Against the Misuse of Pesticides) works with allies in protecting public health and the environment to lead the transition to a world free of toxic pesticides.

Simple Steps is a new initiative by the Natural Resources Defense Council for people who are looking for easy, everyday actions they can do to protect our health, our homes - and our planet. Whether you have a minute, a morning, or a month, you can take simple steps in your life to really make a difference.

The Natural Resource Defense Council is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. They use law, science and the support of 1.2 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things.

Cameron uses nrdc.org for:
Local food sources
Seafood mercury reports
Recycled paper product guides
