Green Spotlight on Betsy of Eco-novice

We’d like to take some time to thank our favorite fellow bloggers for stopping by the Green Baby Guide, providing insightful comments. First in the spotlight is Betsy of Eco-novice. She’s a stay-at-home mother of two who started her path towards greenness when her first child was born. Here’s what she says about her motivation for going green on her blog:

But when my first baby sucked on my hair, I wondered, “What’s in my leave-in conditioner?” When he sucked on the floor, I wondered, “What’s in my cleaner?” When I started feeding him solid foods, I wondered, “How safe are pesticides for infants?” When I opened his disposable diaper on a sweltering day and felt a wave of heat come out I thought, “Maybe I’ll try cloth diapers after all.”

What Keeps You Motivated to Go Green?

Please let me know how you stay motivated to do all those little things that may take a bit of extra effort to help the environment. I have to admit that lately I’ve been slipping . . . relying on the dryer too much, going wild with the plastic produce bags, wasting food. What has happened to me? How do I get back on track?!
