Green Baby

Throughout this year on our whole living journey we have made several changes to our home, diet and way of thinking. We started this process of going green mainly for our kids, but after learning more and actually doing it we found that it is a way of life that we ought to live, not only for them, but for ourselves as well. And we like doing it.

Here are a few simple steps on how to go green for your baby (and for yourselves). Some of them I have implemented in our lives, some I am in the process of and the rest are things I would like to do. These are just a few suggested basic and easy steps to start with to have a green lifestyle.
