And the proposition works! In 2013, Bloomberg Businessweek reported that Gwyneth’s site had more than 150,000 subscribers, revealing that many were interested in doing as she does.

Goop started a revolution of sorts and Jessica Alba was among many who continued in Gwyneth’s footsteps. She launched The Honest Company in 2012, a lifestyle website that’s a veritable how-to guide on clean living.
