Growing Sustainable Together: Practical Resources for Raising Kind, Engaged, Resilient Children
It’s hard enough to raise kids, but to raise them while still “living green” and with twenty-first-century parenting being so tied up in consumerism, waste, and All. The. Plastic, is infinitely harder. How can parents “do it all” and still be sustainable and involved in their community?
In Growing Sustainable Together: Practical Resources for Raising Kind, Engaged, Resilient Children, Shea attempts to answer this quandary and show how green living isn’t just another box to check on the to-do list but actually an essential element in raising children. In her chapters, she discusses how to cultivate kindness, connect with our food, travel, handle waste, and so much more to engage as a family in growing a more sustainable future. She includes tips, advice, and hands-on activities for children of various ages. She reminds us that there is no magic bullet here, but the journey toward sustainability, and the various relationships we cultivate on the way, are just as important as reducing fossil fuels and eating locally. She has a gentle and empowering voice that encourages families on their way toward caring for the home, the planet, we all share.
