This week Caroline Howell, founder of GreenBeanie, joins Greg and Tina to discuss green living. The team learn practical things they can do conserve the environment, stay healthier, and save money. Each pulls from his and her experience with their own children around the topics of recycling, packaging, cleaning supplies, and responsibility on the part of both child and parent. Caroline gives insight into ways to teach your children the value of going green.
