About Me

Leigh GarofalowI am a working mother of two children under the age of 6 and live in the New York Metro area. I am a born environmentalist.  I started this blog because it was so clear we have lost our way. We are not living as healthy a lifestyle as we should, our environment is rapidly deteriorating before our eyes and most importantly our children are being raised in this world without the values of just a generation ago.

This blog is to give us all the information we need to make a difference in our own lives and the worlds children. If we can get this young generation to be “green natives” while the other generations are on their green immigration we have chance to affect change.

Why listen to what I have to say? I a mother, I love to cook, sew, and craft and I have a BA in Political Science and Masters Degree in Public Administration with a concentration of public policy but most importantly I care about the planet and everyone that lives here now and in the future.

I love writing and sharing my experiences with everyone and give them to the tools to live a green and healthy life.

What do I write about?

  • Green parenting
  • Healthy living and eating (How we can make changes simple and hard, cheap and expensive, in our daily lives)
  • Community issues like fracking, GMO’s, and climate change
  • The fun stuff like recipes, books, toys and all the fun stuff we can do to make a difference with out feeling like we are giving up on what we want.
