Celebrate Green!

by Tiffany in Green Holidays

Welcome to my first ever podcast!!! I am happy to bring you the Natural Family Living Podcast, a talk radioNatural Famil;y Podcast banner podcast for the natural mom and environmentally friendly parent. I hope to make this a semi-regular occurrence from now on and cover a variety of topics including green family values, environmental concerns, natural parenting, organic and sustainable living, and natural health and wellness.

My guest this week is Lynn Colwell who is one half of the mother-daughter team whose passion is to help people green up their celebrations. This is the amazing duo that brought Green Halloween to us and they have recently written a WONDERFUL book with information and tips for greening all of our celebrations and special family traditions. It has ideas for Easter, Christmas, Mother’s Day…all the celebrations that are so near and dear to Lynn and Coreyus…that perhaps aren’t so green. I have read the book and it was amazingly helpful and think all green enthusiasts should have it.

Lynn and I discuss why we need to green these occasions, what celebration is the worst offender and what we can do about it, why food choices are big part of it, and we discuss one of the common gifts that really bothers me…conflict diamonds. Have a listen and let me know what you thought!

Also make sure to visit the Celebrate Green website for some tips not found in the book and you can buy the book on Amazon.

    Great interview with Lynn Colwell.

  • What a great idea. We just used some of the ideas for our son’s b-day by creating a craft that was eco-friendly and not using any disposable plates. I’m sure we’ll use many more.


  • Thank you TIffany for the great idea, as always! I’m ordering a book today :)
