Avoid the Green Mom Meltdown with Author Paige Wolf - The Chalkboard
8.2.12

Being a mommy and the author of a go-to guide on green parenting, we knew Paige Wolf would have a few invaluable tricks up her sleeve to share with us!  As a new mother to son, Sam, Paige noticed how many other mothers were, like her, on the verge of a “green mom nervous breakdown”. Her struggles in search of the most reliable information – from cloth-diapering to deciphering labels – led her to write her sweet and good-natured guide, Spit That Out!: The Overly Informed Parent’s Guide to Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt.  Overwhelmed parents everywhere will relate to Paige’s stories, guidance and advice for navigating the often complicated green living landscape.

We’re giving away one of Paige’s green go-to guide’s below, but before you enter, check out the author’s list of 10 favorite resources to make the green mama journey a breeze.  Bookmark away!

  2. This book sounds awesome, and looks very parallel to how I feel about raising my 2 and 4 year olds lately! Thanks for such a relevant posting. When I need the nitty-gritty details on products are there and which ones are least toxic, my go-to site is the Environmental Working Group (http://www.ewg.org/). Their research is great!
