Advantages: Lots of useful green advice
Disadvantages: the products advertised are expensive
I first picked this magazine up six months ago, had a quick browse through it and found information on home education. This being the only magazine which has information on the subject I bought it.
There was the main mag - The Green Parent, then a childrens mag - Green Kids, full of games and ecological information aimed at children (obviously).
I am a magazine buyer, it only needs a freebie on the front and I will buy it. However, I found a certain lack in the baby mag market until I found this one. The others are aimed at main stream lifestyles - nursery, school, ordinary food, hospital births etc. The Green Parent takes the ecologically friendly route, with advice, articles and advertising encompassing all those who wish to follow an alternative to the traditional route.
It has info on recycling and home education from people who believe in it and live it. It has advice on the best nappies to buy, not just for the environment. It doesn't exclude mainstream ideas and opinions.
I am impressed by this magazine and would encourage anyone interested in how their lives & children impact on the environment to buy this. This mag is issued monthly, I've only found it on sale in my local newsagent, it cost £2.75, I think anyway
Summary: Interesting mag for those who give a damn
