Summer Tips for Eco-Moms, Being a Conscious Carnivore and Urban Bicycle Sharing

Listen, laugh & learn with the Green Divas (and Green Dude Scott) anytime – Podcast here!

As always, a show packed with great information and a lot of laughter between. Our guest Green Diva Co-Host, author Julie Bond Genovese, dubbed herself the Weenie Greenie in reference to her physical stature and her inspiring book about being a little person, Nothing Short of Joy.

Green Diva Correspondent Dr. Heather Eves, called in a great report about bicycle sharing in DC, and we had a special segment about being a conscious carnivore with the Global Meat Buyer from Whole Foods Markets, Theo Weening.

Our feature interview was with Kimberly Pinkson, co-founder of EcoMom.com, a great website for all things natural, green and organic babies and kids! Kimberly shared some great tips for traveling with your kids this summer and how to keep them and the earth as healthy as possible.

As always,átoo much information – find a list of resources and links related to this info-packed show at the Green Divas website.

I love "an innocent pig, chicken, calf, etc" as if there were guilty ones.

Anne, I'm sorry but it is never appropriate to wage that kind of personal attack on someone. We are here to engage in healthy debate and learn from each other. Respecting that we are all different and should be able to voice an opinion without being personally attacked. Vincente's profile says he is a pacifist and into non-violence, but his statement was hostile and agressive and disrespectful rather than contributing anything positive or constructive to the conversationm I completely respect those who have opinions like yours, even if we come from a slightly different place. Let's just try to be respectful to each other when voicing our opinions.

I totally agree with Vicente. Sorry, Megan. Play nice? Are people playing nice when they pack an innocent pig, chicken, calf, etc. onto a truck bound for the slaughterhouse to be hung by a leg and have their throats slit? And the ones that arrive sick or injured are further abused in attempts to get them to walk to their slaughter, or left to die an agonizing death in the stockyard. Life is all rainbows and lollipops for the "conscious carnivores" who would rather pleasure their taste buds than practice empathy and compassion for voiceless innocent sentient beings.

Giving up meat is not easy to do, but I'm working on it.
