If you think eco-friendly parenting isn't possible, think again! The library's upcoming panel discussion and green fair is a one-stop shop for parents looking for environmentally friendly options on everything from brown bag provisions, cleaning supplies, skin care and diapers.
Parenting 101: Sustainable Choices is planned Saturday, May 5 at 11 am. The Northwest Library event will include panelists from:
- Generation Green: An array of earth-friendly products is available at Generation Green, the Dublin, Ohio store opened by Heather and Steve Johnson in 2008. Shoppers can also find handmade jewelry, mineral makeup as well as rain barrels and compost bins.
- Green Bean Delivery: If you're interested in healthy, organic and sustainably-grown local foods offered at affordable prices, this food distribution company may be for you. Customize your list for year-round produce and other groceries like eggs, dairy, meat and breads.
- Little Alouette: Amy Turn Sharp's artistic talent and her husband's carpentry skill come together for safe alternative to chemical-coated plastic toys. Rattles, teethers and other wooden toys are handmade in Worthington from locally cultivated wood and finished with organic flaxseed oil.
- Macaroni Kid: The northwest Columbus version of this national newsletter is written and compiled by Bree Anderson and focuses on mostly free or inexpensive activities and events for families. Area kid-friendly businesses are profiled and often offer reader giveaways.
- Twin City Diaper: Columbus resident Amy Tatz's online shop carries cloth diapering essentials, including wipes, skin cleansers and laundry detergent. Many of which are made in the USA or by work at home mothers. Tatz is a firm believer in her products, and used cloth diapers on her own children.
