I always feel like I should be doing more to help/save the environment, but don't know where to start. If I log onto some environmental web sites, I get overwhelmed. Finally, a site just launched for moms who want to be more eco-friendly by starting with baby steps: www.GreenMomsCoastSide.com.

Green Moms have a tag line "Start Easy, Go Greener" and they really do make it easy. I can instantly take action when I see how they break out how to be good to the environment because they relate their tips to things I do in everyday life. They also organize the action items by category, such as cleaning supplies, clothing, gift wrap, transportation and more. I will try a few of their ideas this week, but I won't make my own cleaning solution with vinegar or give only homemade gifts to my sons' friends. I will buy eco-friendly soap. I will research a hybrid SUV (the lease on my gas-guzzling Volvo SUV is up in three months). I think I can be environmentally hip. Check back next week to see if I am.

Hi Erin,

Good for you! I am going to check out that site myself.

Starting small and building is definitely the way to go - I am doing the same thing! I actually began with biodegradable, eco-friendly cleaning products - pre-mixed! I will never have to use bleach or any other harsh chemicals again :-)

Check out the product line at http://www.saferforyourhome.com and let me know if you are interested in them - it's an exclusive line unavailable in retail stores.

The only products I've used that I get paid to use, too ;-)


Have a great day,

I.C. Jackson
