Over the past few years I have made a much more concerted effort to “go green” in my daily lifestyle. Going green doesn’t mean you have to do a complete 180 and sell your car to start walking everywhere! You can do simple things each day to make your life more green and leave a much smaller imprint on the environment. I have started bringing reusable bags to the grocery store, buying organic and local products when I can, and using non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning products. Before I was a mom, these things were important to me, but once I held my sweet baby girl in my arms, I realized how much more I wanted for her life, and how important it was to protect everything around us so that it would be here for her, and for her children. It might be cliche and cheesy, but hey, I never said I wasn’t those things! (I am most certainly both!)
I especially feel good about my decision to feed Little AG only organic milk, foods, and produce whenever possible. I am glad that I know exactly what she is getting, and I never have to worry about fillers or unnecessary additives. I also try to use only organic skincare and body products on her delicate skin (do you know that the things you put on your skin gets partially absorbed into your blood stream?) so that I can protect her however possible. I also shop for organic clothing, and yes, you CAN get stylish organic clothing!
