“Green This! volume one: greening your cleaning” by Deirdre Imus will be released next week. It’s well worth reading for all those interested in environmentally-sound living.
I am fortunate to work with Mrs. Imus at the nation’s only completely “green” children’s hospital, the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital in Hackensack, NJ. As medical advisor to the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology, I am able to witness first hand the profound influence she is having on how hospitals, governments, schools, and families are cleaning up their environments. And the best part is, as her web site clearly states: “It’s all about the children’s health.”
The environment we live in has a tremendous impact on our health. “Green This!” helps us evaluate which products we use in our homes, and how we can transition to safer, less toxic alternatives that really work. Volume Two of the “Green This!” series (due out next spring) will focus on “Greening Your Baby,” which will also be essential reading for all new (and old) parents, and pediatricians.
