While this resource guide was originally intended for Earth Day, it doesn’t have to be April for it to be a great jumping off point for any parents trying to live a little greener, a little more natural, and raise their kids to learn the fundamentals of recycling and low-impact living.
I firmly believe that every walk of life can implement some sort of effort (no matter how small) in their home to work towards making life a little more sustainable to preserve the Earth for future generations.
Therefore, I invite you and all your friends regardless of how green or not even close to green each of you are to our “Guide to Natural Parenting” event during Earth Month! I have over 40 authors, publishers, and blog owners participating and they too come from all walks of life. Find the schedule of topics below.

I would first like to give a big thank you to all of the bloggers participating and the companies that are sponsoring our incredible giveaways. And I would also like to welcome back the bloggers who participated in last year’s Ultimate Earth Day Education Guide! I would not be able to do it without them! I am so excited to be able to show simple and easy ways to both teach ourselves and our children to make more eco-conscious decisions. From crafts and activities to educate to real life stories to inspire, there should be something for everyone! Click each link listed below to see the topics being covered!

Green Pregnancy and Motherhood
Pregnancy is many time the first time a mom even considers becoming green. Many mothers I have met in my years of being eco-conscious have told me that they would have never thought they would go green until they we pregnant. This is the perfect time to dive into ways to reduce your own exposure and consumption in order to help your baby and the planet!
After Birth Baby and Mom
Once you have a baby, it’s both fun and frustrating to explore different parenting styles and explore the world of baby toys, baby gear, and decision making for your kiddos. From parenting choices to green diapers, natural parenting has varying viewpoints on raising eco-conscious children. In the end, what is best for your kid is what works for your family!
