Before I became a mom I thought very little about the things I put in my body and used in my house. But once I brought that cute little bundle home, I started looking at everything more closely. We read labels, changed the way we ate and rethought our cleaning methods. We took recycling a lot more seriously and looked into other ways to reduce our environmental impact.
When I moved to Lake County four years ago all the resources and contacts I had for the changes we had made were, like many things, left in the city. Luckily for me I meet a friend who was on the same journey and could always point me in the direction of a good organic market or holistic practitioner. While talking one day we decided that everyone needed to have a friend like that so we have been working together to build one for you.

The guide is a FREE download you can access anytime by clicking on the “Green Guide” tab above. You can save it and print it out to have on hand at home or to give to a new friend.
