Minnesota EcoMoms-Chapter of the EcoMom Alliance


Mn Chapter-Join the EcoMoms

Hi there,

To join the local EcoMom group, just e-mail me at juliemcjones@gmail.com. We are in the southwest ‘burbs and predominately in the areas of Edina, Linden Hills, Morningside, Highlands, Bloomington, Richfield, Minnetonka. There is a St. Paul EcoMoms group called the EcoPaulitans and they are great fun

I am Julie McMahon Jones. I am the Community Leader of the Minnesota Chapter of the EcoMom ™ Alliance. I am a neighbor, sister, mother of 3 beauties, activist, volunteer, lover of nature, book enthusiast, worshiper of God, yogi, city volunteer, life adventure partner of Tony, with whom I exchanged wedding vows with 11 years ago, daughter of Colleen and Dave and Auntie JuJu to 22 nieces and nephews.

Kimberly Danek Pinkson is the founder and prseident of the EcoMom Alliance and in this video she gives an overview of an EcoMom Party!

Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all.

Go to http://www.ecomomalliance.org to learn about this wonderful, non-profit organization. You can donate at the Sowing Circle, and it is tax-deductible. Mom’s control 85% of the purchasing power in American. We EcoMoms are wielding that power to change the world!

I live in Edina, Minnesota, where I’m trying to make a difference by advocating for energy and the environment changes and strive to live by the tenets of Sustain Your Self. Sustain Your Home. and Sustain Your Planet. I’m thinking globally and acting locally. I invite you to join me and all of the other Moms who want to wield their 85% purchasing power in the marketplace for a sustainable way of life.

Join the EcoMom Alliance and make a difference!

Participate locally with the Minnesota Chapter of the EcoMom Alliance.

Peace,

Julie

Saw your article in the paper today.
Keep up the good work!
The Nature Conservancy sponsored the first Women and Sustainability conference in Wyoming this spring. Contact Annie Jack for more info. and info. on their plastic bag initiative. They’ve done some interesting things! ajack@bresnan.net

Also, you may find the Women’s earth alliance a helpful source of legal aid in your fight to green your community see melinda@womensearthalliance.org They’ve done phenomenal things all over the globe!

Also, try darrreilly@gamil.com who is heading up the Women’s Initiative for a Sustainable Earth and Institute for Green Leadership.

I am assuming you are familiar with the organicconsumers.org and organicmomsanddads.

I would like to invite you and your org. to an all day seminar we are having on what parents can do to keep their children safe and healthy from the view of wholistic natural medicine. Contact me for more info.

All good medicine,

Dr.R.

Julie,

I was not sure where to respond to the article I read in the StarTrib about EcoMoms in Edina so I picked here! As a member of the Edina community,I was encouraged by the frankness of your comment, “If Edina is so proud of being innovative and progressive, they need to get with it.” My son is a junior at EHS and I have seen too much excess living in this community to feel comfortable with the direction it is heading. Thank you for your time and effort in educating and raising your children to believe in a different way to live. It is not an easy thing to do in this community.

Dear Julie,
The Lakeville Friends of the Environment are trying to get Diane the lady who wrote the book “the big Green purse” to come to Lakeville to speak.
Her message is about how much power women have. If we can get her it seems like it would be a good opportunity to start some ecomoms chapters South of the Minnesota River.
Could you give me your e-mail address and phone number so we can talk?

We are having a Conservation Expo, and we’re “going green” this year, we need organizations like yours present, please contact me for more information. I’m located in Wadena, MN. Thanks for the inspiration!

Where do I find out about chapter meetings and joining? Also, my children go to a fabulous school that I think fits into the ecomom philosophy. I’d love to talk to someone about it to see if a link to the school website would be appropriate under the “Sustain Your Planet” link list.

I want the ecomoms help in changing the way Edina recycles. Are you working on this one?
