I highly recommend this book, especially if you have young children. Try not to get overwhelmed because every change made in the home makes a difference. I am experimenting with alternatives to plastic containers in my kid's lunch bags. Yesterday I sent Daughter Elder's carrots in an old baby food glass jar. Imagine her horror as she discovered it at the lunch table surrounded by her peers. I heard they got a good laugh out of it and I got a little revenge ( see last post).
