Reader’s Question: Can Working Parents Go Green?

For some moms, however much they might wish that it were otherwise, going deep green feels next to impossible. Because they’re busy! The moms with the 9 to 5, and the kids in the backseat at 6 wailing for a meal NOW! Those are the moms who bring home the Styrofoam so much more often than they (aka I) want to. And the plastic, and the metallic peel-off tops. Whose children’s bodies incorporate too many French Fries and hormone-heavy hamburgers. How many working parents’ families are sustained only by the unsustainable? And is there a way out?
