Online Communities Support Green Parenting




Mothers who understand the benefits of green living to the health and welfare of their offspring now and in the future can enjoy easy access to helpful practical information. www.NatureMoms.com, now in its fourth year, offers its own article archives; GreenMoms.com, which celebrates its first anniversary this Mother’s Day, links to targeted articles on various websites of interest.

Both online communities share wide-ranging ideas and resources to make it easier to live as a green family and both enable online members to join in recommending products and services and providing their own insights and tips. In addition, www.GreenMoms.com invites members to form their own local support groups.
