For today’s busy parent, getting their family to “go green” may seem like an added task that requires more time and energy than many have to spare. However, new online “green” groups geared toward parents provide a one-stop shop full of great eco- and family- friendly resources, ideas and support.
For moms, one such group is called Green Moms Meet. They are an online resource that empowers moms to come together in an informal setting and talk about the latest on raising healthy families and living green. Some of the topics covered are Going Green on a Budget, Get Smart about Sweeteners, and Allergy-Friendly Food for Families. One great thing about Green Moms Meet is that they provide opportunities to sample the latest healthy, green products. Past sampling opportunities have included EO all-natural hand sanitizer, Wallaby Organic yogurt, and Healthy™ To Go! Trim Energy™. Using a resource like this saves you time and makes bringing green and healthy ideas and products into your home easy and fun.
It’s not just moms that are in on the action. A report by EcoFocus Worldwide shows that 65 percent of the nation’s 36 million dads want to teach their kids lessons in environmental responsibility that they will remember for a lifetime.
Enter Enviro Dad. He describes himself as, “An Environmentalist. A Dad. A Mission. A Purpose,” and his website covers everything from teaching kids environmental stewardship to Enviro Dad’s Farmer’s Market Resource Guide. He covers everything from reviews of the eco-friendly cars on the market to reports on the resurgence of the sustainable winery – many topics that today’s parents might find useful and interesting.
