EcoMoms Conversation-Monday, March 17th at 7:15-8:30PM-Linden Hills Coop (lower level) RSVP required. Space is limited to the first 18 EcoMoms. Please view this 20 minute video before the meeting, if you haven’t seen it yet!

Moms control over 85% of the products, produce and materials that come through their thresholds. EcoMoms have a tremendous amount of power and influence.

Now, for the education, advocacy and activism. Let’s get greening. Our homes, our kid’s schools, neighborhoods and lives. An opportunity to hear about the zero-waste class room project and other “greenifications” that are being developed by teachers, parents and students in schools and homes. People are writing grants with school administrators and composting their kitchen scraps with red wiggler worms.Families are driving less and buying bikes. They are boycotting certain companies and buying eco-friendly toys, clothes and products. Families and schools are reducing, reusing, and recycling their stuff. Kids are bringing zero-waste lunches to school and becoming acutely aware of their excess.

Further education needs to be done until our community lives in more sustainable ways, but the momentum is in full swing and I say, “strike while the irons hot.” Simply put…more need to “live simply so that others may simply live.”

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”-Ghandi
