Cindy needs some advice on helping her family go green with her!

Dear Re-nest,

First of all, I love your site! Thank you for being such a daily inspiration. I recently decided to try and live a greener life, but I'm running into resistance from my husband. I'm trying to recycle now, and conserve resources, and buy responsibly, but my husband just doesn't get it, and he's worried it's actually going to cost us more money. I have two small children as well, and I want to start to raise them with a green mindset. Can you give me some advice on how I can "green" my husband, how I can get him on board with this?? Also, what can I start to do with my children? I'd love to know if other readers have run into this problem, and any advice they might have.

Thank you,
Cindy
