Please introduce yourself to the group how you can, do, or would like to integrate green living into your life.
I am a stay at home mom to 4 kids (2 boys, 2 girls) and 2 Labrador retrievers. I am passionate about improving the quality of life for my family and that of future generations. I have always been an avid recycler, but never paid much attention to the personal care/cleaning products I used other than making sure they were cruelty free until I stumbled across the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep cosmetic safety database. I was aghast at the ingredients in some of the products I used and the loose labeling standards.
I have spent the better part of this year scouring the net and store shelves for safer, yet affordable products. I have had so much fun with this new hobby as I have learned how easy cloth diapering can be, that I love practically every Dr. Bronner's product, and can now feel good about not only what goes into my kids mouths, but what goes onto their skin and all the surfaces of our house that they touch, lick, roll on, or otherwise act like typical kids.
I look forward to getting to know everyone in this group and sharing our thoughts, concerns, and ideas.
