Mischa Barton has been doing a lot of thinking lately while experiencing spirituality and religion in India, and the 22-year-old star has come up with three ways she recommends for saving the planet.

In a new video posted on her official website, Barton talks about the way she integrates green living with her daily life.

“The three everyday tips I like for staying green are, one: conserving water around the house. Don’t leave water running for no reason – especially like when you’re brushing your teeth or taking a shower or whatever. Just not to waste water.

“Second one is when you go to the store these days, most stores have bags you can get that are reusable and bring them back as long as you remember them – which seems to be my only issue. I think that’s an amazing thing to do. It saves us paper and plastic and it’s much, much, much better for the environment.

“The third thing I think everyone should try and do a little more is bike and walk places because not only is it good for you and you get out there but it’s really good for the environment, especially places like L.A. where everyone drives. I have friends who drive hybrids and bio-diesel cars but you know they’re nothing like getting out there and going walking.”

Barton is a spokesperson for Climate Star, an organization that fights Global Warming through social and legislative activism. She is also an ambassador for Save the Children's “One Water” campaign, which brings water to remote locations in Africa. Barton visited South Africa to help promote the work of Save the Children in September, 2008.
