Green Kids, Sage Families: the Ultimate Guide to Raising Your Organic Kids
New American Library, Penguin, New York, NY, 2009

As the founder of Green Babies, one of the world’s largest organic cotton clothing companies, Lynda Fassa is committed to an eco-friendly lifestyle. In Green Kids, Sage Families Fassa shares green guidance she’s compiled on everything from school lunches to perfectly green birthday parties and green bedroom makeovers. An expert on clothing, Fassa insists “you are what you wear” and she doesn’t just mean in the fashion sense. Cotton is the number one most-pesticide-laden crop in America (number two in the world, after coffee). It’s in our clothing and even in our food. (What’s found near the top of the list of potato chip ingredients? Cottonseed oil!) Cosmetics are so ingested by our bodies we might as well be eating them and, unbelievably, many of the ingredients in shampoos and lotions aren’t even tested for safety. Affordably creating a nontoxic household in a clean environment should be our expectation. “Turning green is not a duty; it’s a right.”
