About the Author

SHANNON BRESCHER SHEA is devoted to telling authentic stories about green living and parenting. She writes the parenting blog We'll Eat You Up, We Love You So and is a long-standing environmental activist. After receiving a master's degree from Oxford University in Nature, Society, and Environmental Policy, she's worked for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and U.S. Department of Energy. Shea is a member of the National Association of Science Writers, and she likes to walk the talk: She's biked from New York City to Washington D.C. to raise money for climate change advocacy, protested the Keystone XL pipeline when she was pregnant, and led family community bike rides. Shea has bylines in numerous publications, including the Washington Post, Sierra Magazine, Scary Mommy, and Romper.

Reviews

"This is an important book, in content and in tone. Too often, sustainability is seen as energy-efficiency, as a technical task with a slightly punitive tone. Shannon Brescher Shea takes an entirely different approach. She shows how family members can grow closer to each other by becoming closer to the Earth. I can imagine thousands of parents, grandparents, and kids following her wise words."
--Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and Our Wild Calling

"Growing Sustainable Together offers modern parents a plethora of realistic ideas for engaging their children in activities and family habits that will sustain the environment. From gardening, recycling and picking up litter to eschewing a car and overload of material possessions, author Shannon Brescher Shea shows how our everyday choices can help protect our planet. This readable, persuasive and accessible book will inspire both parents new to environmental action and long-time activists struggling to continue sustainable practices post-baby. If you want to raise justice-seeking, responsible, green-minded children, Growing Sustainable Together is the guide for you. An exciting, research-grounded book for environmentally oriented parents!"
--Katherine Reynolds Lewis, author of The Good News About Bad Behavior
