A greener childhood

I've been light on this blog as I went to see family and friends on the east coast. GreenLAGirl has been doing the work of an entire city!

My friends from college have four kids: my 7-year-old goddaughter and triplet 5-year olds. Somehow they manage not to create trash with FOUR SCHOOL LUNCHES A DAY through the use of BPA-free plastic containers in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as plastic bag alternatives.

As a non-parent, this sort of blew my mind. Kids seem to me like waste factories, even years after the diaper days. For parents out there, where do you get your green know-how?

And don't say Karen Graziani, because that's cheating.
