Trendy moms care about the world around them. As we enter the 21st century, environmentalism and ecology is no longer considered a marginal concern but rather has taken front seat as an important concern of all people that want a better world for their children. That being the case it is no surprise that successful, modern women who find themselves expecting to bring a new life into the world imminently would be extra concerned about how her behavior effects not only her own health and that of her unborn child, but the health of mother earth, too.
So what are some of the things that should be of concern to a young, aware, caring woman who is also expecting a child? It is appropriate to begin with good nutrition, but not just the usual admonitions to eat a well-balance diet filled with fruits, vegetable, protein sources, dairy and the rest. Recently the trend has been to take good nutrition a step further. Nowadays it is not hard to find organically grown fruits and vegetables, and animal products which come from healthier sources, such as free-range chickens and cows.
As the baby’s due date approaches you might want to consider having a “Green Baby Shower.” Tell your friends you not only want everything to be good for you and your baby, but also healthy for the environment. Some things they might consider as appropriate gifts are BPA-Free feeding products and pacifiers, lightly used baby clothes, and products made from recycled materials and that can easily be recycled. Trendy moms are role models for their children, teaching through their very actions the importance of protecting not only their own health, but the health of the planet.
