How to “Be Green” as a Busy Parent

April 17, 2018

How to "Be Green" as a Busy Parent

It can be tough to “be green,” especially as a parent. Your brain isn’t always working correctly, and you have less time, shifted priorities and added expenses.

In this episode of It Takes a Village to Raise a Parent, host DJ Waldow chats with Emily Silverstein, former gDiapers Community Manager and current owner/founder of Urban Oreganics, about being green while being a parent. She also shares a few tips on how to save the planet. Have a listen. 

Episode Highlights

  • How and why Emily launched an organic skincare product company
  • Growing up environmentally aware
  • How her eco-passion grew once she had children
  • Educating parents on being more green
  • How simple actions and decisions can make an impact
  • “Start small” and “don’t be hard on yourself” (good tips for parenting in general)
  • Reusable to-go boxes and produce bags (who knew?)
  • Organic is better than NOT-organic
  • Watch out for the word “natural"

    Check out Emily's immaculate office, below, referenced a few times during the show. It looks like an IKEA set, but in fact, it's her working office.
