Actress and speaker Rachelle Carson-Begley is one of the most recognized names and faces in the environmental world of Hollywood. As the wife of uber-environmental activist Ed Begley, Jr., Carson-Begley opened her life to millions of people as co-star of the highly successful reality series, LIVING WITH ED, shown on HGTV and Discovery’s Planet Green. Each episode of the show chronicled the everyday life of what it takes for this reasonably green-conscious gal to live with her over the top, all or nothing, eco-obsessed husband.
As if they didn’t learn their lesson, they’re back with a new production called ON BEGLEY STREET (http://onbegleystreet.com), which will follow the zany couple as they attempt to build their green dream home. Rachelle is also co-host and producer of the forthcoming series MY GREEN HOUSE, a series of webisodes debuting on bitesizenetworks.com this September.
Rachelle is on the board of the nonprofit Green Wish and a supporter of many charities, including Waterkeeper Alliance and groups focused on children and Alzheimer’s disease. She’s also an in-demand speaker, participating in events for Women of the Green Generation and other organizations. Her interviews and profiles have been published in publications such as POSITIVELY GREEN, NATURAL HEALTH, ABILITY, STATEMENT, READER’S DIGEST, VIV MAGAZINE, and GLAMOUR. She writes and blogs frequently, and provided the foreword and many of the tips for Begley’s book LIVING LIKE ED (Clarkson Potter, 2008).
