Becoming Greener Parents

Don't forget to join me at our Becoming Greener Parents workshop this Wednesday, 28th of April at Cupcake Mum at 10:30 am. 

We'll focus on why and how to surround your baby with a safe and and healthy environment, void of synthetic chemicals and harmful toxins. We’ll discuss simple and easy ways to go green and I will also provide a brief overview on clothing, nappies, toys, skin care and nursery. I’ll briefly mention food, but will cover it in June during 2 practical cookery courses on Whole Grain for your Baby’s Brain and Family Meal Planning and Cooking for Toddlers. We’ll also cover more about babywearing, co-sleeping, attachment theory in May at our Organic Parenting workshop.

For a quick intro on the importance of eco-friendly clothing: Did you know that cotton is the most pesticide-dependent crop in the world, accounting for 25% of all pesticide use?! Scary, right?! It is such a heavily treated material - and we have to consider this when choosing clothing for our children. 

It's these little things that add up to make a difference. In this workshop, I'll give you quick and easy ways to become a greener parent. 

If you would like register for the workshop, please contact me! I am also available to present to groups or do individual consultations!!
