Happy Earth Day! This week we are focusing on all things green and simple ways to go green.
With the massive amounts of information available about eco-this and sustainable-that, the pressure to be "green" can be overwhelming. We don't claim to be perfect (what fun would that be, anyways?), but we do understand that even small changes and choices that seem inconsequential can make an impact. The best advice we can give is to determine what is most important and realistic for your family. The realistic piece is key here. Don't bite off more than you can chew or, no matter what your intentions, you may end up with a stockpile of cloth diapers that never get used.
Here's are some little green things you can do:
Bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates, lead, polyvinyl chloride (PVC)...it's for very good reason that you won't find any of these chemicals in Little Green Pouch’s reusable food pouches.
We developed our pouches for feeding our own kids healthy, real food on the go (see Melissa’s What's in Parker's Pouch blog series!). That's why we really did our homework to find the safest materials for our reusable food pouches--and we continue to do our homework, to make sure it stays that way.
We want the safest products for our kids and for yours.
So today, we're kicking off our Little Green Means Green blog series on environmental topics related to health. In the coming months, we'll be talking about BPA, phthalates, sun protection and skincare products, toxic chemicals in fragrances, parabens, pesticides and many other topics.
We want to share things we've researched and information we've learned that will help you make the healthiest choices for your family and the planet we share.
It's a complex equation. So many factors, so many unknowns, SO much information. And as parents, we're right there with you, figuring it out on the fly, doing the best we can!
So as excited as we are to share all of this info with you, we're equally excited to learn the great information you have to share. We hope you'll chime in on our Little Green Pouch Facebook community and share the great resources and information you've discovered.
First on our list to share, this incredible TED Talk we just discovered...
This TED Talk features filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer, maker of the film Toxic Baby, and scientist Tyrone Hayes, who studies the effects of common farming chemicals on frogs and amphibians.
In it, Penelope shares her personal story about environmental pollution affecting her first baby--it’s both tough to hear and powerful motivation to take action.
Give it a watch, and let us know what you think!
