Mommy Greenest Pregnancy Book!

The Mommy Greenest Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond coverEight years ago, I sat down with my infant daughter* in one hand and a pen in the other, and wrote a note designed to be read by my three children when they were old enough to become parents. That barely-decipherable scribble became a book full of notes about pregnancy and parenting. Eventually, those notes became a manuscript. And now, that manuscript has become The Mommy Greenest Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond! [Read more…]

Chemical Movie Must See

Created by Emmy-award winning journalists Dana Nachman and Don Hardy, Executive Produced and narrated by Sean Penn, “The Human Experiment” explores how vast amounts of industrial chemicals have permeated our lives for the past 50 years, leaving behind skyrocketing rates of cancer, infertility, autism, asthma and more. With comprehensive information and solutions, this film is a must-see! I was honored to help support the film’s launch, and am excited to attend the Los Angeles premiere. There’s still time to get tickets, if you want to join me! [Read more…]

Mommy Greenest Approved: Shop Smart with Climate Store

Climate solution appliances for Earth DayI’m not one to say you can shop your way out of a problem, but I do believe that choosing sustainable products for things you actually need—also known as “voting with your wallet” is super important. For me, that’s where ClimateStore comes in. The company brings together information and products that can help reduce your carbon footprint, and I’m proud to be named one of their Ambassadors for 2015. This month, I’m spreading the word about an Earth Week inspired ClimateStore #10forSolar program, which gives 10% back to community solar projects through the Solar Electric Light Fund—plus a list of solutions that are on my wish list. Because if you’re going to shop anyway, you might as well shop smart. Right? [Read more…]

Let’s Start A Fast Fashion Revolution!

She’d pledged to not buy anything new for 30 days, joining the Mommy Greenest community in our effort to raise awareness of the environmental impact of fashion, and the eco-friendly options that thrifting, swapping and consignment provide.

And guess what? After her 30 days were up, my friend kept her pledge! She’d saved so much money and time that it became her way of life. Now I’ve got a new challenge for her.

I’m asking this friend—and the entire Mommy Greenest community—to join me next Friday, 4.24.15, for a global effort called Fashion Revolution Day. Are you in? [Read more…]
