SiteWarming for The Green Teen this Friday

We’ve had the pleasure in the past of learning green living tips from Jenn Savedge, also known as The Green Parent, so I’m very excited to announce that this Friday’s SiteWarming from 9 to 10 p.m. eastern (hashtag #thegreenteen) is for Jenn’s new book…

The Green Teen is “the eco-friendly teen’s guide to saving the planet.” Jenn Savedge has been helping parents by providing green craft ideas and information for children, and now with her new book she is reaching out directly to teens. Jenn writes,
“Today’s teenagers are standing at the crossroads of environmental history. Global warming will fundamentally change the world as they know it within their lifetime. But how to keep their healthy environmental awareness from becoming environmental anxiety? The secret is to provide them with education and tools for positive action.”
Join us Friday to win GREAT prizes and ask Jenn for tips on greening our lives and the lives of our children!

5. Smart Mama’s Green Guide by Jennifer Taggart Although not available until June, one lucky winner will receive Jennifer Taggart’s new book. Parents often feel overwhelmed and defenseless against a never-ending recall list of toys and baby products. Deciphering unpronounceable chemicals they encounter every day can be daunting if not impossible. With environmental exposures being closely linked to 70 percent of birth defects, new parents faced with the overwhelming responsibility for their babies’ health frequently turn to organic products. But they quickly find they don’t have the time to practice a completely green or natural lifestyle. THE SMART MAMA’S GREEN GUIDE delivers the information busy parents want and the tools to make informed, individual choices without the demand to go all-out green. Packed with practical tips on eliminating or reducing the hidden dangers of toxic chemicals that lurk everywhere, this book will empower readers to control what comes into their homes and make informed decisions instead of relying on government regulation of harmful chemicals.
