Happy Green Baby is the official blog of Happygreenbaby.com and we are about living our lives, and raising our children, as friendly to the Earth as we can be, one step at a time.
What does “going or living green” mean?
For some of us it means composting every scrap of a leftover lunch, cloth diapering, and making organic baby food from scratch. For others, it’s about using only non-toxic chemicals in our homes and recycling. For some of us it is eating only organic food. And for others it’s somewhere in between. Regardless where you fit in the ‘going green’ lifestyle, we just want to spread awareness on what our choices make on the Earth.
There is no judgement here at Happy Green Baby! We recoginize the need for everyone to do things in a way that works for themselves and their own family. We are just happy you are here, and hope we can provide a few tips on how to make living a green life easier.
Raising children can pose a whole new series of challenges for eco-conscious people. Your new little bundle of joy requires a lot of stuff (diapers, clothes, bottles, crib bedding, nursery furniture, towels, bubble bath, more diapers). As your children grow so does the collection of “stuff” filling up your home. So how do you not become some sort of crazed consumer, filling every room of your home with all the baby (and kid) stuff (you don’t need) that’s bad for you, baby and the earth? How do you handle the less than earth friendly gifts you get by friends and family, who mean well but don’t have your passion for a non-toxic lifestyle? These are some of the questions we are trying to answer for you (as well as ourselves).
So what is your next step? Where do you begin?
