We conducted an honest assessment of our own lifestyle this past weekend to determine how green we really are.
No impact man, we are not. But as it turns out, we've made significant lifestyle changes that have a greening effect because of baby.
So much of the discourse focuses on how having a child can negatively impact the environment (e.g., disposable diapers and wipes), but the story doesn't just end there.
We came up with some lifestyle decisions we made because of baby that turned out to be green as well. For instance...
So what about you? Did you pass on your maternity clothes? Are you more eco-conscious about the foods, products and services you purchase? Please share greener changes, both conscious and unintended, you've made in your lifestyle since having baby.
