Green parenting: raising a healthy infant while saving the planet

 

Many people across the globe can save the earth by embracing sustainable living and making small but meaningful changes like reducing the amount of water and energy wasted unnecessarily, adopting a well-balanced diet based on fresh fruits and vegetables preferably bought from the farmers’ market, turning off the lights when leaving a room, bringing their own bag when making groceries or going shopping. Practically, they can shop green, clean green, read green and live green, but what happens when a newborn comes into the picture? Can the new parents continue to pursue their mission to change the world and save the planet? The answer is definitely “yes”; they can do all the things mentioned above and more. The only difference is that from this point on they also have to teach another small person the importance of making the right choices and embracing sustainable living. However, until the baby become able to make his own decisions, a parent has to do it for him.
