My friend, colleague and fellow DC resident Keya has been a huge inspiration for me as I've sought to go greener in my life. She and her family really walk the talk when it comes to reducing carbon footprints. In her "spare" time, she's somehow found time to write a book about raising a child while keeping a low carbon footprint. "The Zero Footprint Baby: How to Save the Planet While Raising a Healthy Baby" shows how to raise a child with little to no carbon footprint and addresses the pressures and preconceptions new parents face as they start a family from pregnancy (what kind of birth has the lowest impact?); what to feed your baby (breastfeed, formula, or both?); childcareand of course, diapering. There's a book launch on Saturday, June 1st at the Greater Washington Breastfeeding Center 2141 K St., NW Suite 3 from 10 am to noon. Keya will be talking about the book and signing copies. This book will make the perfect shower gift! Click here to RSVP. Hope to see you there!
If you can't make it to the book launch, you can buy a hard copy or ebook version on Amazon.com. Remember, Father's Day is coming up on June 17th!
