Women leading the way

Most Americans are concerned about the environment, and parents of young children are particularly worried about the degradation of the environment their children will face. A new movement, especially strong in California, is the establishment of groups of EcoMoms who form groups to discuss keeping their homes, schools and neighborhoods green. They are advocates for waste-free school lunches, eating local food, boycotting environmentally dangerous cleaning products and other activities to build a healthier world. Like their mothers and grandmothers before them, these women are banding together to offer practical support for making positive changes. Some advocates may go a bit further than most of us would like to move–reusing their children’s bathwater for example–but for the most part their suggestions are sensible and will make the world a better place for all of us. Three cheers for the ongoing accomplishments of women power!
