Green Mama by Tracey Bianchi – Guilt-Free Guide to Helping You and Your Kids Save the Planet Review

planet friendly
by Jeremiah Ro

Climate change is one of the most complex and urgent scientific and social issues of the 21st century. Despite increasing warnings of the dangers of altering the Earth’s climate, we continue to release more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Those who cannot hold us accountable today-such as future generations, the global poor and nonhuman species, will be harmed the most by our failure to change course.

Tracey Bianchi is a married mother of three young children, living in Chicago. Her concern for the environment and its effect on her family and future generations inspired her to write Green Mama: The Guilt-Free Guide to Helping You and Your Children Save the Planet.

Bianchi earned a master of divinity degree and is a frequent speaker and writer on topics of Christianity. Regardless of your religious beliefs or denomination, and whether or not you have children, Green Mama will enlighten you to the earth’s dwindling resources; and how you can help their preservation.

Here, the topics of carbon footprints and carbon offsets related to climate change are highlighted, along with using our purchasing power and greening holiday traditions.

Carbon Footprint. The day we’re born we begin leaving an ecological footprint on the world. Bianchi notes that Genesis I invites us to be stewards of the earth. “Sadly we take more than we were ever given and leave a bigger mark than the earth can handle,’ she says. A carbon footprint results from carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere as a result of our lifestyles. Driving a car, flying in a plane, heating our homes and running appliances are all contributors. Ultimately, we want to tread lightly on the earth whenever possible. This includes limiting our water usage, walking instead of driving, and using clean, biodegradable products.

Carbon Offsets. Carbon offsets are carbon credits you buy from nonprofit organizations; and are often viewed as “apologies to the planet.” Your tax deductible purchases help better the environment in various ways, including planting trees in the Amazon and protecting wildlife.

Purchasing Power. “A truly sustainable and planet-friendly life will take every day tasks like drinking coffee and getting dressed, and whenever possible, turn them into ways to make a difference,” says Bianchi. Whenever possible, make your purchases count.

Fair prices help keep farmers and the communities they serve in tact. Fair trade companies support the small growers vs. their corporate counterparts. They also treat their workers with dignity and respect and ban child labor. Fair trade products may cost more, but many are made with ecological integrity, aim for sustainability and preserve the environment. To exert your purchasing power:

Shop near home. Support local businesses vs. big -box stores, and your community will benefit in a variety of ways. This includes more tax dollars for schools and maintained downtown rental prices, due to its vitality.
Eat locally. Many local restaurants offer unique dishes inspired by family traditions, vs. menus devised by distant corporate headquarters. They’re also apt to serve area seasonal cuisine not available through national restaurant chains.

Green Traditions-Celebrating Holidays and Special Events. “Family traditions are a great time to make some eco-friendly changes that draw your family closer to creation,” says Bianchi. Here are some ideas for greening your special occasions:

Establish family traditions that celebrate events like Winter Solstice or Summer Solstice.
Donate duplicate gifts and unwanted toys to charity vs. exchanging them at the store.
Go paperless when wrapping gifts-use kid-friendly pillowcases for children’s presents and canvas bags for adults.
Green up invitations, thank you notes and holiday cards-send electronic greetings instead.
Decorate more naturally during the seasons-use gourds at Thanksgiving and patriotic flowers on the Fourth of July.
Plant a tree commemorating a special day or in memory of a deceased family member.

Climate change is an ecological concern today and for future generations. Explore more about the topic; and help promote awareness with friends and family. Use your purchasing power and special holiday celebrations as symbols of its importance.

The Yurt is the Gateway, the Collection the Guide


(PRWEB) October 24, 2013

Glamping Hub has determined the specific thing that is currently luring the most visitors to its website. The yurt. Over the past three months, more than 25% of the platforms traffic has initially been interested in yurt accommodations, making it the most searched form of accommodation on the platform. But this research has revealed more than that. The yurt is not just a popular type of accommodation; it is also the travelers gateway to the glamping world. And Glamping Hub is capitalizing on that by composing its 170+ carefully curated collections.

Over the past year, Glamping Hub has been relentlessly analyzing the inflow of traffic to its platform. Because luxury camping is such a new market in the travel industry, discovering the paths and touch points of visitors is essential to understanding consumer connection to the idea, and it also helps guide the structure and framework of the GlampingHub.com platform and its offerings.

Of all of the different types of luxury camping and alternative lodging, the yurt is one of the most widely accepted and understood forms accommodation, so it is not a surprise that 25% of travelers looking for a glamping holiday would start their search there. But by analyzing the routes that visitors take on the platform, Glamping Hub has learned that although the yurt is one of the dominant players, it is also becoming the gateway to the more unique accommodations, such as tree houses, tipis and eco pods.

We see thousands of consumers finding GlampingHub.com by doing an Internet search with the term yurt, but we have noticed that once they begin to dig into the websites diverse inventory, their route changes course to more unique types of sites, says Talal Benjelloun, Glamping Hub COO. This realization has helped us to organize and improve our platform to make it as easy as possible for new and returning visitors to discover all the different facets of glampingwith things like collections, for example.

The use of curated collections to draw travelers towards certain destinations or types of accommodations or amenities is not a new idea in the hospitality industry, but for Glamping Hub it has proved to be especially important. Consumers looking for a glamping accommodation may become overwhelmed when presented with hundreds of wildly different options; comparing apples to oranges is somewhat of an understatement when it comes to alternative lodging. However when this enormous variety of options is gathered into smaller, more defined groupings, the search becomes much more manageable and enjoyable.

There is definitely a learning curve when it comes to glamping. By understanding the movement of traffic to and through the website, Glamping Hub has been able to use their collections to help guide visitors who may only know about the yurt to their ideal accommodation, and also provide a resource for travelers taking their first steps into the world of alternative lodging.

About Glamping Hub

Launched in 2012, Glamping Hub is the worlds first online booking platform offering luxury camping and alternative accommodations on all 5 continents. With over 700 unique glamping sites in 57 countries, and a vast range of prices and amenities, Glamping Hub connects travelers with nature in a whole new way, providing off-the-grid, sustainable and truly one-of-a-kind lodging and outdoor adventure in some of the most breathtaking landscapes on earth.
