Green parenting can be defined in several different ways. Some families practice green parenting by choosing earth-friendly materials and activities for home life and child rearing. Others practice green parenting by making ecological principles and practices accessible to children. Regardless of the approach, it is undeniable that green parenting is on the rise.
