Go Green Without Going Extreme!

If you’re looking to go (a little) green without going weird or overboard you are in the right place!

I care A LOT about our planet and doing my part to keep it healthy BUT I am also a mom of three busy kids, 1 dog, 2 cats and my husband.  I am definitely not a super mom that gets it all (and more) done. I’m just a regular mom who feels passionately about doing what I can to keep my family – and the planet – healthy.  

Since I’m passionate about going green – but NOT a super mom – I’m always searching for EASY ways we can live a little greener.  

My goal is to give you the tools you need to go green:

  • Without giving up the things that make life easier OR
  • Making your life harder

I want to prove to you that going green does not have to be hard (or weird, or crunchy, or uncomfortable!).  

First, let’s get acquainted!

Now that you’ve heard my “why” here’s the who…who in the heck am I and why should you listen to me??

My name is Pam and my family (3 kids, my husband, 2 cats and a dog) is Greenily (green+family).  Our experiences (the good, the bad and the ugly!) provide the ideas I share with you about going (a little) green.

Before becoming a SAHM about 8 years ago I worked in advertising.  My next move was into corporate philanthropy which led me to 10+ years working in conservation education at the National Zoo in Washington, DC.   

My role was to help educate the public about endangered species and their habitats in faraway places like Namibia and China.  It was an amazing experience!  Who wouldn’t love walking by majestic cheetahs (my favorite animal!) every morning on the way into the office??

Once the fog of having 3 kids in 4 years lifted, I set my sights on bringing the conservation  message closer to home.

Second, here’s what you can do

I take all the stuff I make my family try and turn it into helpful blog posts, cheat sheets and mini courses for you to use.  I don’t know about you but my mom (and 49 year old!) brain likes it when things are sorted into categories so I can wrap my head around them – and not forget them.

So, you’ll notice on Greenily that things fall into 4 categories.  The categories I use are How to Reduce Waste, Ways to Conserve Energy, Ways to Conserve Water and Toxin-Free Living.

I think this helps makes going green much more manageable – ’cause it can seem overwhelming which can lead right to, “I give up!”

You might be wondering, “Where am I supposed to start?”  Well, you really can start anywhere!

If you’ve been thinking your cleaning products could use a makeover to something safer, start with Toxin-Free Living!

Or if you are feeling a little guilty about the enourmous amount of trash your family produces in a week, start with How to Reduce Waste.

Here’s a link to the main page for each category.  There you’ll find all the related blog posts that can help you make some simple changes in that area!
