The Sustainable(ish) Guide to Green Parenting: Guilt-Free Eco-Ideas for Raising Your Kids
This is the must read sustainable handbook for all parents, from new parents, to parents of older children, looking for honest and balanced help, guidance and support to make green choices for their family in a guilt-free, non judgmental and practical way.
When it comes to the climate crisis, having kids is something of a double-edged sword. it's a wonderful and joyous thing, but we're instantly more aware of the responsibility we have to this new small person that has arrived in our life, and the realisation can hit hard that the 'someday' impact of our rapidly warming planet will be seen in the lifetime of our new child.
It's at exactly the same time that All The Things pile into our lives. All the must-have baby paraphernalia - the clothes, the nappies, the 'travel system' (why can't it still be called a buggy?), all to only then be rapidly replaced with the must have toddler toys, pre-school toys... and so it goes on.
And to top it all off, the good habits we might have had when it came to recycling diligently, meal planning, or cycling everywhere pre-baby, are quickly out of the window as sleep, time and headspace are all at a premium.
But help is at hand. Jen Gale's essential new book is packed with her inimitable practical, friendly and attainable ideas for sustainable(ish) changes you can make for and with your kids, covering everything you might need to help you along the way as your family grows up - from washable nappies to school uniform, family holidays to getting from A to B - and everything in between.
This book isn't here to add guilt - that's the last thing any of us needs. And it's not about telling people how to parent - it's about helping sort out some of the facts from the fiction (because as new parents let's face it, who has the time or inclination to spend hours on Google trying to figure out whether reusable nappies really ARE better for the planet) and sifting through the greenwashing, letting parents know what options are out there, and then encouraging them to find the planet positive changes that work for them.
