Overview

Millions of diapers are thrown away every day, and much of babycare is far from environmentally friendly. However, now more than ever parents are taking notice of the environment and their effect on it. Most people are aware of today's ecological issues, but it may not be until the life-changing event of having a baby that they are motivated to actually change their lifestyles. Even people who already live in a relatively green way may find that they want to know more about what chemicals they are applying to their baby's sensitive skin. Or it might be that the additional waste a baby generates encourages them to be more creative about reusing household items. After all, parents have a higher stake in the planet's future as they need to ensure a habitable world for their children. How parents decide to feed, clothe, transport, and entertain their baby has huge consequences. Green Baby will provide them with all the information they need to make the very best choices both for their baby's welfare and for the environment. Without being alarmist, this timely book clearly identifies the key ecological issues, broadening knowledge and interest. It provides practical advice on how to reduce a baby's environmental impact, from the transportation parents use to the diapers they choose.
