Spit That Out!

The Overly Informed Parent's Guide to Raising Healthy Kids in the Age of Environmental Guilt

by Paige Wolf



From BPA in baby bottles and asbestos in crayons to misleading "natural" labels—it can despair even the most steadfast parent.

Lighthearted yet authoritative, Spit That Out! cuts through the information overload, sorts cloth from disposable, and empowers readers to make simple but impactful changes.

Hot-button topics include food, toys, breast milk and diapers, clothing, the hidden toxins in schools, and how to spot greenwashing from a mile away. Bursting with valuable advice on green vacations, how to handle unsupportive friends and family, and how to be green on a budget.
