The Sustainable(ish) Guide to Green Parenting - Jen Gale
Guilt-free eco-ideas for raising your kids
The must-have friendly green bible of accessible eco-tips for families.
'The most family friendly way to start doing your bit.' - The Sunday Times
The Official Blurb:
As a parent, getting out of the house with everyone wearing shoes (on a good day) can feel like you're winning, so adding 'being green' to the never-ending to-do list might feel like the thing to bring all your spinning plates crashing to the ground.
If that's the case, then this is the book for you.
No preaching. No judgement. No guilt.
Instead you'll find easy, do-able ideas and suggestions for you to pick and choose from, try out and adapt. Plus bucketful's of encouragement as you explore what works for you and your family.
One of the things we love about Jen is that she gently shares loads of handy ideas and tips – the book is chock full of ‘em – and yet doesn’t leave you feeling overwhelmed.
She also manages to sound distinctly un-smug, which is very refreshing and most enjoyable. It really does leave you feeling optimistic about the changes and choices you make.
It’s not all positive rah-rah though. Jen does an excellent job at the very start of reminding us exactly why making those changes is important, and it’s sobering. Really sobering when you think about the kids. Thankfully, Jen doesn’t take you to a cave of doom and gloom. Instead, she shows us why we need to get started, and then gives us loads of great ways to get started and build momentum.
A Little bit about the author
Jen Gale is an ordinary, knackered mum of two whose life changed when she dragged her family into a year of buying nothing new. The year helped Jen recognise the power that we all have as individuals to make a difference. The family are still (just about) talking to her and they live in Wiltshire where Jen writes and podcasts about all things sustainable(ish).
