I’m really excited to announce my participation with Healthy Child, Healthy World as a Parent Ambassador. I’m in great company along with 18 other bloggers and actress Amy Brenneman (Private Practice, Judging Amy) and I’m thrilled to be a part of this movement.
About: Healthy Child, Healthy World is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding global awareness and understanding about the environmental hazards that are potentially hazardous to children that unfortunately exist in today’s modern world. They aim to increase awareness one parent at a time – so we can make better choices for our children.
To me, it’s about making small, daily changes. Global change starts with one family, and over the last few years, I’ve been trying to make subtle changes in my family’s living on a daily basis. The world isn’t what it was when we were once kids. There are chemicals everywhere and they are harmful to our children.
My hope is that in being a part of this volunteer position, I can not only help to spread the word but help to learn what changes I can make in my own home to make it a safer environment for my children. Because I’ll be the first to admit that while I’ve made a lot of changes in the last few years (eating more organically, buying all-natural products when I can), I’m still pretty mainstream and I’m looking forward to educating myself and my family towards living a healthier lifestyle.
Some info for you guys. First off, watch this video. If it doesn’t move you to want to make a change, then you weren’t paying attention and need to watch again.
I could go on and on but we’ll start with this intro post. In the coming months, I hope to bring you tons of useful information via Healthy Child, Healthy World that will help to educate Mommies with Style readers on ways to have a cleaner and safer home.
Giveaway: Along with this announcement, I have one prize pack available from Healthy Child, Healthy World. It includes a copy of Healthy Child Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home, and other print materials including a pocket shopping guide (awesome for trips to the store).
