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!

    Hello Alicia,
    We loved your article about “Healthy Child, Healthy World. Although my husband I don’t have children we are proud doggy parents and have similar concerns “Healthy Dog, Healthy World”. Like many doggy parents and pet lovers out there we are always looking for eco-friendly solutions from organic dog treats, hemp toys, beds made out of recycled soda bottles & organic cotton,and all natural spa & bath products. Like our children our pets are very precious to us and are a part of our family. We want to make sure anything we buy for our dog Lola is pesticide, chemical, animal by product & toxic free. We believe in “Healthy dog, Healthy earth, Happy life”. There are so many eco-friendly sustainable products out there to choose from.
    Barkingly Yours,
    Adam, Wendy & Lola (Woof Woof)
