It was a year ago on July 4 that I found out I was pregnant and my world got a little bit greener.  I was always environmentally conscious but that day I began to shift my focus from the big picture of world issues to the littlest picture of all – my baby girl.  Everything I did suddenly became a risk/benefit analysis.  I stopped using paraben-laden cosmetics, banned BPA products from the house and worried about everything from gas fumes to pool chlorine.  I also gave myself carte blanche to buy fresh organic food.  It’s been a long road from Pop-tart Jersey girl to crunchy Californian.  My daughter, however, was born a crunchy Californian, and I continue to do everything in my knowledge and power to keep her life green.
