The No-Nonsense Guide to Green Parenting
How to raise your child, help save the planet and not go mad By Kate Blincoe Foreword by Nikki Duffy
Nature needs children and children need nature. This book will help your family open your doors to the outside and become truly freerange animals. You’ll live a greener lifestyle and your children will learn to enjoy, appreciate and care for the world around them.
This beautiful book will inspire you to explore nature whether that’s:
- foraging for dinner
- learning party tricks with plants
- or making eco-decisions around the home
It’s all about having fun together, however exhausted, time-pressured or stressed you are!
For parents of zero to ten year olds, this is a humorous and light-hearted look at all things green and nature inspired. It’s not about being perfect; it’s about giving it a try and feeling the benefits for your family.
“This book contains a wealth of ideas and inspiration for green parenting. Alongside advice on why to choose a more natural approach there are practical ways for you to get started right away at home. What I love is how many projects there are for the whole family. Make your own bath bombs or create a mini meadow in a window box, for example. I love the section on foraging stuffed with seasonal recipes. Kate has created challenges, which appear throughout the book and encourage every member of the family to choose a greener, more meaningful existence. Dive in to this rich resource and have fun going green!” - Melissa Corkhill, editor of The Green Parent magazine, www.thegreenparent.co.uk
“This is the ultimate handbook for a fun, green and healthy family. I love this book. It is inspirational and uplifting and will help any family reconnect with nature. A balanced and healthy lifestyle, with free-range, active kids is the secret wonder-product the ad men don’t want you to know about. It leaves the TV and plastic toys standing. So get out there and try these great ideas.”- David Bond, director of Project Wild Thing and The Wild Network
“At last – a good parenting guide which doesn’t make you feel inadequate! Kate Blincoe shows how green parenting is not about hair shirts or home-made muesli but blends convenient modern technology with healthier, greener alternatives. This book is full of realistic tips for being greener around the home and brilliant ideas for wild play, from teddy dens to lawn letters. You’ll see how greener parenting is more fun for your children – and more fun for you. I’m a nature-loving parent still struggling with screens, plastic toys and supermarket food, and Kate’s simple, inspiring ideas and good sense is just what I need.” - Patrick Barkham, author of Coastlines and The Butterfly Isles
