Is Organic Motherhood Just a Status Symbol?

I got SO excited when I read this headline on SheKnows.com. I realize that being environmentally friendly is important. There’s a reason that “green marketing” has been so effective, everyone really does want to do their share and save the planet and leave our children with a better world. Really, we do!
