Becoming a new mother is one of the most exciting and life-changing events for any woman. It can also have a major impact upon the environment in a variety of ways that most new moms don’t even stop to think about until confronted with constant consumption and mountains of waste.
In this guide, the author highlights the major challenges for a new mother who is concerned about green issues and wants to reduce the environmental impact of their infant.
From natural childbirth to breastfeeding, diapering to decorating the nursery, this guide is designed to help new moms actively participate in the 3Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle.
Becoming a new mother can be challenging at the best of times, but if your budget is tight, these ideas can not only help you reduce your carbon footprint, they can also save you money.
Having a new baby in the house can be expensive, with all sorts of hidden costs prospective parents are unaware of until it is too late. At the first news of a new baby on the way, many people use it as an excuse for a spending spree and then wish they had bought more practical things. Many others wish they had spent less because they had no idea how much a tiny little baby could consume each week.
What does an infant really need? And how can you provide it safely, cleanly, greenly, and economically?
If you are expecting, or the mother of an infant and concerned about the waste you are generating every day destined for the landfills, now is the time to use this guide to start going green as a new mom.
