According to a story in the National Enquirer this week, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are in the midst of creating a "green haven" for their unborn baby.

The socialite is due to give birth this summer and she has apparently been hard at work creating an eco paradise for their second baby in their Los Angeles home.  

“She fussed over every imaginable detail, right down to the type of cotton in the sheets and the linens to the type of paint used on the walls,” spilled an informant in the National Enquirer article.  She's also made sure that every piece of furniture in the baby's room is formaldehyde-free and will use wood furniture that is made from sustainably harvested materials.  

“Even the toys are an environmentalist’s dream. Nicole is a model mum and she’s determined to teach her kids to honor the earth,” said the "source."  

Joel and Nicole already have a 19-month-old daughter, Harlow Winter Kate. Looks like both of their kids are getting a jumpstart to green.
