Why I chose to be a Green Mommy

I was raised by a Mom who was what is now called "green". We were always boycotting bad companies who used rain-forest grown beef, or Styrofoam containers. We used all organic products and grew all our own veggies. We used cloth diapers and most of us were breastfed. My mom is my role-model. She was green before it was cool and she raised me to be the same. To care about our planet and using products that benefit not only our planet but healthier for ourselves and our children.
When my husband and I found out we were going to have our first child, I decided that I too wanted to be a Green Mommy. I wanted to use cloth diapers and breastfeed. Even though my Mom had used cloth diapers and breastfed, I still felt lost. I needed help. Things have changed so much since me and my siblings were kids. Luckily I had a circle of friends who were all Green Mommies and who all had information and help to offer me and my husband.
Now my son is 7 weeks old and I have begun to realize that not everyone has readily available help and information on how to be a more Green Mommy. So that is why I am starting this blog. I will be posting about breastfeeding, cloth diapering, making my own baby food, organic baby products, and other adventures I may have in being a Green Mommy. Welcome to my Blog!
