Green Familia – a light green shopping blog for Lifestyle, Family, Home and Environment

Browse main article categories

toyThere’s a wonderful green website I’ve been keeping all to myself.

Brenda, the editor describes it as ‘a light green shopping blog for Lifestyle, Family, Home and Environment’

Each day she writes about some groovy green finds and her mission is to help readers find the funkiest and best products available on the market.

As her site has recently had a makeover, I decided it’s time to join in the celebrations and give a shout out to the Green Familia.

As a Mum of three children, Brenda is getting greener by the minute – like many of us, having kids increased her awareness about the environment and green living. What’s great about her blog is that as she learns she shares; which makes you feel you can keep up! There is no preaching or ‘Greater than Thou’ attitude, Brenda simply extends the hand of friendship to help us all make better choices.

Brenda’s advice for green shopping is to buy in bulk and support local wherever you can.  She shares green gift ideas and product reviews and while most of the products are for babies and children, you’ll find a range of goodies reviewed for adults too.

Brenda has secured some great discounts for her readers and regularly runs competitions to win some lovely green prizes.

Why not pop over and see what gems you can uncover? She takes the hard work out of making green and ethical consumer choices.

What about you – what is your favourite ‘green’ website?
