The Green Book, I’ve learned that saving the planet is easier than I thought.The idea of "going green" sounds fantastic in theory, but trading up to a Prius and installing solar panels on my house is not in my near future. But thanks to
Authors Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas M. Kostigen along with a slew of superstars have created a witty manual filled with simple tips to help prolong the life of the earth. Don’t worry, I’m not talking composting or growing your own hemp.

I personally checked off about 50 (yes 50!) things that my children and I could implement without causing any huge uproars or mutinies in my home.

Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
