Turns out Josh Dorfman (AKA The Lazy Environmentalist) is not only a super green dude, but also a super green dad.
The author, television host and eco consulting guru was recently honored as children wear company Polarn O. Pyret’s “Dad of the Year.” Get out of town!
Dorfman, a new father, has spent the majority of his career educating the world about sustainable living and we’re excited to see he’s passing down the legacy.
“When people have children, I believe it becomes easier to kick the bad habits and make greener choices because you’re no longer making those choices just for you. You’re now making them for your children,” Dorfman said. “I am honored to be recognized by Polarn O. Pyret, a company that has been ‘greening it’ for more than 30 years. Green clothing for kids is very important, but it can’t only be organic—it has to also look fantastic otherwise the wider segment of the consumer market will not buy into the concept.”
So just how is Josh getting his parental green groove on? Buying organic clothes, using cloth diapers and making his own reusable baby wipes are just a few of the fancy practices that helped earn him the honor.
