Green Guide Families

The Complete Reference For Eco-friendly Parents

By Catherine Zandonella, 1968-

When we published The Green Guide in 2008, Meryl Streep called it "the ultimate green living reference." Now, building on that success, here’s a guide to eco-friendly parenting that’s expertly organized and filled with practical advice, definitive explanations, and imaginative ideas.

Addressing the key environmental issues faced by parents of young children today, this book takes a straightforward approach to such urgent concerns as lead-painted toys; the risks and benefits of vaccinations, antibiotics, and vitamins; the potential side effects of plastic bottles and containers; how to manage food allergies and avoid fat- and sugar-filled snacks; and much more.

A trained scientist, seasoned writer, and mother of two small children, author Catherine Zandonella combines knowledge and experience as she helps parents guide youngsters through a society that doesn’t always make green lifestyle choices easy. She also offers sensible advice on raising children who "think green" right from the start and shows how green choices can actually cost less.

Combining two trusted names with tried-and-true advice, this is sure to become the go-to guide for a new generation of green parents.
