This website has been a long time coming. Everyone always tells you to follow your heart and passion and find what you love to do. It has taken me years to arrive here.
Going green for myself and my family was always my little personal passion project. I’ve been a vegetarian for over half my life now. I started slowly buying organic produce at the grocery store when it became available. It wasn’t really until my daughter was born that it really became a big deal for me.
I analyzed every lotion and body wash that we used for her. I researched the best toy options for her to play with (remember the Chinese plastic toys with lead debacle?). Ingredients for every little snack was scoured for items that I felt were harmful. And I worried and I researched and in the end felt I was making the best decision at the time for our family.
I was making the best decision at the time for our family.
And really that is the most important thing. It doesn’t matter what I think or what I do. It doesn’t matter what others think and what they do. It only matters that I make the best decision for my family.
That is what I hope to do here. Share with you what works for us, how I came to that decision and then leave the rest up to you. No judgements.
I know that this path is one of small steps. I have taken them myself. I am still taking them. We are all constantly evolving and changing. It is how we grow as humans.
I am the one that my friends turn to for advice on organic food, natural toys, items to avoid in their skin care products, and how to make your own household cleaners. I hope that I can be a trusted and valued resource in your life too.
Please take a moment to reach out with a comment or contact me. I am ready and eager to help you out with anything you have been wanting to learn more about or perhaps just need a sympathetic ear for.
