It can be tough (and time-consuming and expensive) to “be green.” Taking actions — or intentionally not taking actions — can be even more challenging as a parent.
Your brain is not always working correctly. All the sudden you have less time. Your priorities may have shifted.
In this episode of It Takes a Village to Raise a Parent, host DJ Waldow chats with Emily Silverstein, former gDiapers Community Manager and current founder of Urban Oreganics. Emily knows how to “be green” and be a parent (no quotes). Even better, she shares her experience, wisdom, and tips with you — the listener.
Oh, and she tells us HOW TO SAVE THE PLANET (kinda).
Some of the highlights of the show include:
How and why Emily launched an organic skincare product company How Emily grew up in an “environmentally aware” ... environment Emily explains how her passions — for eco-friendly — grew once she had children Emily talks about how to educate parents about being more green How small, simple actions and decisions can make a huge impact Emily’s suggestions to “start small” and to “not be so hard on yourself” REUSABLE TO-GO BOXES and PRODUCE BAGS?!?! (who knew?) Organic is better than NOT-organic! Watch out for the word “natural” ... it means NOTHING. Links:
