Actor and environmental activist Ed Begley Jr. is popping up all over these days promoting his show Living with Ed and his new book Living Like Ed (read an excerpt here). Momentum is on his side, as the NY Post puts it “this guy went green long before it was trendy.”

Begley’s show was recently picked up for another 13 episodes by HGTV. Entering its third season, Living with Ed shows the virtues of “green living” and audits other celebrities’ homes. Take a look at his home in this photo series from the BBC. There are lots of good ideas in there for improving your home, including bricks made from recycled tires and a solar oven.
