The Mom's Guide to Growing Your Family Green: Saving the Earth Begins at Home
Synopses & Reviews
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. Todays models are so efficient that rinsing is not necessary.
• Home office: Screensavers dont save energy. Instead have the computer switch to sleep mode when idle.
