Making your home a healthier and happier place, one step at a time.
The quest for a sustainable living environment is evident in today’s world. Everywhere we look, we see companies pushing towards products that are organic and sustainable. Hybrid cars, solar-powered appliances, kitchen gardens — all of these are signs that the world is now making the effort to go green, and with good reason.
This chiropractor mom is a known advocate of many organic products, and passionate about practicing sustainable living. There are so many ways to integrate organic and sustainable living into daily life: from preparing healthy, organic food for your kids, all the way to shopping for your family’s clothes.
Popular retailers have begun converting their products to organic cotton. Nike, for example, has been gradually increasing its organic cotton usage since 2000. No industry seems to be immune from the sustainable living craze, since the rush to produce 100% organic clothing is also evident in regular fashion fairs throughout the globe.
But for the mom who wants nothing but the best in breathable and sustainable organic fabrics for her kids, purely organic baby clothes have fairly recently become available. Marks and Spencer, the first major retailer to become carbon neutral, has made a commitment to organic cotton, releasing a line of baby wear called Little Green Radicals which is made of Fair Trade organic cotton. While they have yet to expand their commitment to organic clothing into a greater extent of their baby products, M&S boasts that they use organic cotton in 31% of their products.
Sustainable living can integrate into just about any aspect of family life. Ella’s Kitchen offers a wide range of pure organic baby food — they’ve even taken a bulk of the work off of busy moms by showing which food is best for babies of each age range! My kids happen to love Ella’s Kitchen pouches for on-the-go travels (and I love that they’re healthy and organic!).
Sustainable Baby Steps also offers a variety of different activities that families can do, with the belief that nothing is more sustainable than strong family connections (and I couldn’t agree more). There are over 150 hassle-free activities that you and your family can enjoy.
It may seem like a daunting task to make the switch to sustainable living, but just take it one step at a time. With a little thoughtfulness for fortitude, your home will be healthier and happier. Your family will thank you for taking those steps!
