Fassa, founder of an organic baby-clothing line, has written a friendly and accessible guidebook for new parents on how to raise their children in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Her chapters on pregnancy are unique, especially those focusing on green beauty and hair products, which are often overlooked. Fassa moves on to address the diaper debate, eco-friendly cleaning, and organic clothing, and even offers a few recipes from eco-conscious chefs. Interspersed with all her tips and suggestions are first-person entries from “green gurus,” ranging from physicians and activists to all manner of business professionals manufacturing green products, as well as a celebrity mom or two. Their contributions provide a lot of welcome information, and Fassa also includes lists of Web sites for items mentioned and “Red Flags” for those that should be avoided. A thorough list of green products completes this handy, readable title that accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. --Colleen Mondor

If you are someone who wants to go green for baby, this book may be a good starting place. There are also some good recommendations for websites and brands that focus on organic baby items, but the book doesn't provide an exhaustive list of companies by any means. So again, if you are already on the green track this will be only mildly helpful. Some of the suggestions are also impractical for most people. For example, the author discusses how dirty and contaminated carpets are, and what a big problem that is since babies spend the majority of their playtime on the floor. Her suggestion is to replace carpet with bamboo floors or some other hard surface. While this is great in theory, most of us don't have the budget to re-floor our homes as part of baby prep.
Overall, I'm glad that I checked this book out from the library rather than purchasing it.
