LABOR OF LOVE: Naomi Watts hasn’t had her baby yet, but she’s already stocking up on Erbaorganics skincare. The all-natural line for mother and child also supports the Worldwide Orphans Foundation—15 percent of baby body oil and baby wash sales will go to the cause. “Everyone should buy these fantastic products and learn about WWO’s life-saving programs,” she says….

BIG BANGLE THEORY: Wear a bangle, save an island! At least, that’s what Natalie Portman and Liv Tyler are hoping to do: Both have purchased pieces from John Hardy’s new sterling silver bamboo line; 10 percent of the purchase price will go to plant trees to reforest Nusa Penida, an island off the coast of Bali.

Don’t shoot the messenger—or at least the messenger-style bag—just yet: Celebs are carrying luxe versions of the casual staple, with styles ranging from Cameron Diaz‘s sporty yellow Marni to Penélope Cruz’s sleek gray Prada. The practical upside? The side-slung designs are gentler on the back than an overstuffed tote.
