The Mom's Guide to Growing Your Family Green: Saving the Earth Begins at Home
With the multitude of green choices available, how can moms determine what will be best for their families—and the environment? Terra Wellington has the answers.
This user-friendly and invaluable resource is packed with hundreds of easy green how-tos including:
• Shopping: Get the most bang for your buck by purchasing organic foods that would otherwise have high pesticide residue, like apples, grapes, green peppers, peaches, and pears.
• Kitchen: Save money and water by scraping—not rinsing— dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Today's models are so efficient that rinsing is not necessary.
• Home office: Screensavers don't save energy. Instead have the computer switch to sleep mode when idle.
