When her son Neo was born, businesswoman Anamika Sengupta chose some environmentally healthy alternatives for motherhood. After Neo's birth, she began carrying him in cloth wraps. She now recommends four other eco-friendly parenting alternatives.
Using cloth bags, rather than plastic, is one of the easiest changes to make: many companies, such as grocery stores and libraries, provide these longer-lasting totes. Reusable bottles, rather than packs of plastic ones, are a wiser choice for the environment.
Sengupta also suggests reusable straws and bamboo toothbrushes. She started her own business, Almitra Sustainables, which assists other people in creating a lifestyle that protects the ecosystem.
