A compelling, well-written book for aspiring environmental mommies, Green Mama manages to fulfill its “guilt-free” promise with solid, simple advice that’s easy — for even the busiest moms! — to implement. “Leaving things better than I found them even started to seem, well, a little like something Jesus would do,” says Bianchi.
Bianchi’s appealing slice-of-life stories, which preface each chapter, document her struggle to balance consumerism with God’s call to stewardship. Green Mama: The Guilt-Free Guide to Helping You and Your Kids Save the Planet encourages thoughtful, spendthrift behaviors that trickle down immediately to the next generation. Particularly helpful are each chapter’s end checklist, where Bianchi repeats the behavior or spending changes she’s introduced, letting a reader decide whether each item is important to her or even possible, given the situation.
If her goal is to leave her children and the planet they inherit infinitely bettered by affecting today’s choices, Bianchi scores major environmental points here and readers will too.
