Today I made a very solid and resolute decision for the health and well-being of my family. I have been tousling back and forth with the idea of "going green" ever since my first son was born. I wanted to do what I could to keep him away from harmful chemicals. But being a young military wife I knew our budget at the time couldn't handle the price of organic and all-natural products. Now that we are more "adult" with our finances, we have a little bit more wiggle room in our budget; and we are more willing to sacrifice for the things we need/want.
I want to ease into this lifestyle change by continually making small changes here and there trying different products out to see how they work in our home. I have an order from The Honest Co., which was founded by actress Jessica Alba, coming soon. If you haven't heard about this company they make various household and personal care products that are natural and toxic-free. They are a subscription-based company which means you will get a shipment each month unless you cancel or pause it. If you're in the market they are offering free shipping on orders over $50. I love that they have baby care products and can't wait to try them out. A few other companies I'd like to try are Method and Seventh Generation; but I'm open to others.
We also decided to purchase our produce only from the local farmer's market or Whole Foods store.
What are you doing different for your family this year? What natural products do you use in your home?
