Good to be Leo on Earth Day

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Jrwatkins It's good to be green when you're an A-list celeb. Don't spoil the surprise, but "eco-advocates" including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhall, Justin Timberlake, Tobey Maguire, Ellen DeGeneres, Tina Fey and Sting can look forward to receiving hand-delivered gift baskets on Earth Day next week. The baskets will be filled with green consumer goods including lotions, lip balms and salves from Winona-based J.R. Watkins Natural Apothecary (available at Target). This isn't the first celebrity kiss-up for Watkins – the company showered stars with its products at the 2008 Academy Awards as well. FYI: just because they drive the  Prius doesn't mean they can't afford soap. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
