Green Moms Carnival

Today's the day for the inaugural Green Moms Carnival. Brainchild of Lynn Miller at OrganicMania, this monthly collaborative will muse about environmental issues from a maternal perspective (although some honorary Earth Mothers and even fathers joined in too).

I'm honored to be a founding member of the Green Moms Carnival and so grateful to Lynn, who not only gathered our voices together but got a number of green mommy bloggers, including yours truly, recognized at Alltop as top green blogs. Today, the green mom bloggers are musing about climate change. You can read my post here -- don't forget to comment if you want a whack at my Pocket Idiot's Guide to Your Carbon Footprint. We all need to start somewhere!

Every month, on the first Monday of the month, the group will address another issue important to green parenting. The first month, we decided to focus on climate change. So, on August 4, head over to OrganicMania to read the carnival round up, and then check out what the founding members have to say. I'm sure they will be all over the map -- and all germane to us green parents.
