Publisher's Description

Moms today are busier than ever. Taking care of the planet sounds like a great idea---but in the midst of taking care of your kids, it becomes just one more thing to feel guilty about not doing. Tracey Bianchi knows what it's like to live in the middle of suburbia with a to-do list too long to write down. In Green Mama, she brings green living within reach for every overtired, overstressed, and overwhelmed mom. Her practical suggestions help moms like you make environmentally wise choices at the grocery store, schoolyard, and kitchen table, while keeping an eye on the kids and the budget. With creative tips, tricks, and resources, she shares her stories of successes and failures in saving the planet and inspiring her kids to love God's world. Moms need a resource like Green Mama to remind them that green living is not another chore but an invitation to a creative partnership with God. As Bianchi enthusiastically tells you, green living is more than a trend---it is God's beautiful plan for the planet and for your life.

Editorial Reviews

Bianchi artfully blends a Christian outlook with a quest to live a more environmentally conscious lifestyle. While unabashedly focused on saving the world as part of God's plan, she realizes it will take a lot of practical choices to accomplish that goal. So while she does credit her faith for much of her determination, she also notes that combating global warming so that the onslaught of the Mountain Pine Beetle will be halted is a worthy achievement anyone can appreciate. Bianchi doesn't make suggestions about specific products so much as point out the connections between our choices and some very dire ramifications. 'It's all hooked up,' she writes, and then draws a line from fewer scallops on her plate to the increase in predatory cownose rays that are booming due to the overfishing of sharks. Bianchi avers that convenience must not be the choice of those truly committed to their faith, family, and environment. Hip, funny, and earnest without being preachy, Bianchi is an environmentally focused author. Fox News fans, among many others, will easily embrace -- Booklist


Writer and speaker Bianchi does what few evangelicals have the courage or social insight to accomplish, treading fearlessly into the minefields of discord between those Christians who go enthusiastically green in their habits and philosophical leanings, and those who do not. The author presents a compelling argument for prudently using (and not simply wasting) everything from water to electricity to foodstuffs. Bianchi shares her personal story of becoming a 'green mama' with eloquence and gently calls others to do likewise, making small but significant choices as outward expression of faith, trust, and selflessness. The author also offers plenty of practical 'Green Steps' and 'Eco-Examen' questions in every chapter for daily application. Readers will not be guilt-tripped into accommodating Bianchi's ardent desire to save the planet, but will instead find themselves compelled to rethink their lifestyle with a more environmentally friendly eye. -- Publishers Weekly

    Green Mama is a wonderful book I enjoyed this book so much! There were so many key points she made that just started you thinking about more and more ways to go "Green". I really liked how at the end of each chapter she has you write down a key point you liked and want to implement and one your just not to crazy about. She writes the book like she is sitting over a cup of tea (or coffee) and she is chatting with you like your friends. Whether your already "Green" "Semi Green" or a "Green Newbie" you will gain so much out of it. Some of my favorite parts and interesting facts:

    Thank you Zondervan for sending me this book for review. I enjoyed this book so much!
