Mom's Tips for a Happy, Healthy and Sustainable Summer

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2014) - Ereka Vetrini, TV Host and Mom, shares some tips on how to continue a healthy, happy, and sustainable lifestyle over the summer.

With kids out of school, there's more downtime which can slow them down mentally & physically. It's important to keep kids active with things like summer camp, outdoor activities, and crafts. With little steps they can continue an active, healthy and happy lifestyle throughout the summer and carry on these habits afterwards too.

Start by keeping up with a healthy routine by ensuring your kids take their vitamins daily. Walgreens is teaming up with Vitamin Angels to donate one percent of vitamin sales to help millions of children who lack essential vitamins and minerals. The best part is that all vitamins available at Walgreens are eligible. So while you're keeping your kids healthy, you are supporting the goal to reach 100 million children in the US and abroad to receive much need life-changing vitamins.

Small steps can make a big impact on the future when it comes to recycling and sustainability. This season Unilever Project Sunlight is on a mission to show families some fun, easy ways to live more sustainably, with a series of Summer Sunlight Activities like transforming a shampoo bottle into a storage caddy. Just take a plastic shampoo bottle, cut off the top, draw on markings for a hanger and pouch, cut, decorate and you've got yourself a handy caddy. Other sustainable activities can be found at

Spend time outdoors this summer, whether it's at the beach or soccer field and don't worry about getting messy. Gain flings are easy to use -- simply toss them into the washer -- and your clothes come out smelling amazing. In fact, they recently did a study that showed this scent brings more joy than listening to your favorite song. Gain flings have 2X the cleaning power and 50% more scent so all your summer clothes are clean in no time.
