Moregreenmoms Interviews Alice Shabecoff

California-based Christine Gardner from moregreenmoms interviewed Alice Shabecoff, author of Poisoned for Profit, at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers on September 30th, as seen in the video below.

Alice explains the circumstances that lead her and her husband, Philip, to write the book, and why California and Massachusetts are leading the nation in toxics education, child protection laws, and consumer awareness.
