eco friendly familiesMy guest this week is Helen Coronato, author of Eco-Friendly Families: Guide your family to greener living, with activities that engage and inspire from toddlers to teens

Helen is sharing eco-friendly back to school tips. Instead of shopping until you drop, there are creative ways to get the supplies you need. For example, Helen suggests hosting a Swap Meet with other parents.

She also talks about taking inventory of what you already own and reusing things you have. Can you spruce up your scissors with a little foil? What about reusing pencil shavings?

Helen mentioned ReusableBags.com on the show as a source of easy to carry reusable bags that fit neatly inside your purse.
