I read an interesting article on Grist today. It highlighted the perspective of 4 parents on how "4 green parents deal with the plastic scare."

I'm definitely the person to play it safe until more information is available, but sometimes it gets tiring to be in a mode of hyper-consciousness. I enjoyed reading how other parents deal with the information - a nice reality check.

Sometimes the effort to be green seems filled with all kinds of scary and alarmist information. Of course there are many times when this is warranted. Going green with balance and perspective is important. Applying the information to your family, your values, and your resources is key.
