Hello all!! I am a newly green mama (or at least trying to be). There is a lot to learn so I am doing my best. So far I feed my family organic foods, I use baby safe, earth safe cleaners, bpa free bottles and have earth friendly shopping bags. I would love to learn more !! Please send me suggestions

I use melaleuca products, and love them! They have made such a big difference in my daughters skin and her asthema and allergies! So glad I found them! And since i stopped buying my household stuf at Trader Joes (which I still LOVE for food groceries) I have been saving about 60-80 dollars a month. May seem like it isn't much, but some is better than none!
Best of luck to you on your quest to be green!! You have a great start!

Hi Jessica,

Welcome! The only suggestions I have are to choose carefully and make sure that your choices work for your family and wallet. Choose organic whenever possible, choose items that have little packaging and can be recycled, buy concentrated cleaners not the premixed kind...why pay for water? I think that's it for now

What products are you currently using? I use Shaklee products...absolutely love them and they are so economical its great!
