New guide to green parenting


It’s a powerful image. A child asks a parent, “What did you do to try to stop it?”

I am not a parent, but I am at an age where many of my friends are starting families. No matter what shade of green they were before becoming parents, I’ve noticed a consistent and considerable change in behavior. They are researching BPA-free baby bottles, environmentally friendly diapers, vaccinations, and toxics in toys.

A new book lays out a comprehensive set of eco-friendly guidelines for parents. Healthy Child Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home is written by Christopher Gavigan, CEO and Executive Director of the non-profit Healthy Child Healthy World, with special contributions from experts in parenting (Dr. Harvey Karp), sustainability (William McDonough), and a cast of celebrities that would make any producer in Hollywood green with envy.

I know what I’ll be giving as baby gifts this year!
