The Mom's Guide to Earth Day

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2014) -  Melissa Gerstein, co-founder of, shares some tips on helping you and your family make every day Earth Day.

Start with the kitchen and make small changes in your everyday food choices. Making a simple swap like using Silk Almondmilk Protein Plus Fiber or other Silk beverages in your morning smoothie or kid's morning cereal can actually save 500 gallons of water per half gallon compared to conventional dairy milk! Not only is it delicious, plant-based nourishment but you're helping to save one of the planet's most precious resources. They also have a great campaign going on right now encouraging consumers to celebrate the universal joy that water brings.

Another great, simple change for your kids is also in the kitchen -- their food. As a mom, I always want to provide my children with the best products out there that contain proper nutrition for their growing bodies, and Happy Family is my go-to brand. Their products, like Happy Puffs and Happy Tot, are not only organic and non-GMO but include extra and enlightened nutrition. They also source from sustainable family farms and use packaging without the use of BPA and from recycled materials whenever possible.

You can also swap out household and personal care products for ones that leave behind a happier and healthier world. Ology products, available exclusively at Walgreens, are safer for your family and better for the environment -- there are no harmful chemicals and the paper products are 100 percent tree free. They have household products like paper towels all-purpose cleaners and laundry detergent and personal care products like shampoo and conditioner. You can feel good about using these products.
