Not long ago, I got an email from the mother of a child in my son’s class. The subject line alone was enough to jack up my blood pressure. “Aren't we done with this already?” I fumed to myself. “They’re in third grade now, for heaven's sake!”

A blog about Going Green Gradually with 3 little ones.
Introduction
My name is Betsy. I am a mom of three young children, an occasional policy analyst, and the author of the blog Eco-novice: Going Green Gradually, where I chronicle my eco-successes and failures. I discuss such topics as cheap and easy ways to go greencloth diapering and early potty training, switching from disposables to reusables, and limiting your family's exposure to toxic chemicals. My background is in science, education, and public policy. My writing has been featured on websites such as Healthy Child Healthy World and DrGreene.com.
