When it comes to raising her 6-year-old daughter with hubby David Arquette, Scream 4 star Courteney Cox wants to ensure Coco grows up to appreciate the earth.

"I try to always be as green as possible," the actress, 46, tells "For Coco, I got her Organic Matters [products], which Jen Meyer told me about."

Organic Matters — which sells everything from bedding to beauty products — offers a wide assortment of organic, natural and recycled alternatives to many commercially manufactured goods.

And Meyer — a highly sought-after jewelry designer who wed Spiderman's Tobey Maguire in 2007 — also inspired her pal to switch to more eco-friendly beauty products.

"She told me about this one called Weleda," Cox says. "It’s this shampoo and body wash. It’s natural and great — I use it on Coco!"

When her daughter isn't learning about how to be green, Cox says Coco is just like any other girl her age.

"She's into Barbies," the Cougar Town star tells Us. "She likes Barbies a lot!"

And although the actress says she doesn't know if she'll have anymore children, she does offer some sage advice for new moms: "Be patient!"
