Another way that parents can easily green up their lifestyle or gear up for baby’s arrival in an eco-friendly way, is to buy used books, clothing, and accessories.

I recently found out about a green online book reseller, called Better World Books .

According to the company, when you purchase children’s books, cookbooks, or any book that interests your family from BWB, you are:


* Diverting books from landfills (buying used is the best kind of recycling – and so far BWB has spared over 6,000 TONS from ‘fills.)
* Offsetting shipping environmental costs with carbon offsets from CarbonFund.org
* Avoiding an SUV ride to the local Barnes & Noble for a “virgin pulp” new hardback

And as if that wasn’t enough, here are some other bonuses:

* BWB books are up to 80% cheaper than new ones
* Shipping is free!
* Better World shares its revenues with important literacy groups like “Books for Africa”

Better World Books is offering $20 gift certificates to two readers this week.
Pop on over there and find a book you’d like to buy. Come back and tell us about it in the comments. Then, you’ll be entered for your chance to win $20 in books! Very cool!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
