Jessica Alba is putting her money where her mouth is. The eco-friendly actress, who launched her clean-living brand, The Honest Company, in 2012, opened a new Los Angeles medical facility aimed at researching environmental chemicals on children’s health.
Dubbed The Honest Company Ultra Clean Room, the facility is located in L.A.’s Mount Sinai Hospital. The “Sin City” star was on hand to launch the facility at its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sept. 10.
The “room” (which is really a medical lab) will allow researchers to use state-of-the-art technology to learn more about how toxins in the environment affect children’s health.
Speaking at the launch, Alba, a mother of two daughters, said, “To be part of the next phase of research is a dream come true.”
Alba also shared an Instagram of the momentous occasion, adding, “We’re so honored to be part of the future of chemical research at #mtsinai #honestultraclean.” (Funnily enough, Alba’s daughter is named Honor).
Hospital boss, Dr. Kenneth L. Davis, said in statement, “The new clean room will be an integral part of our Laboratory for Molecular Environment Chemistry and further establishes Mount Sinai as the leader in the field of children’s environmental health.”
Congratulations, Jessica! And thanks for keeping us ‘honest.’
