As a woman who pursues a more organic, natural and eco-friendly lifestyle in a world that most times doesn’t care about it, I can not stress enough how necessary it is to have a good support system in this endeavor. I was fortunate enough to minor in sustainability and work in the sustainability office during college, so I found a strong foundation within people there. It has grown now to include people in Facebook groups, and the online resources that likeminded people provide (like this blog!). Still, though, I don’t have a local, in-life, real world group of people who understand me on a “green” level.
“MommyCon is a boutique style convention dedicated to bringing modern parents and mothers-to-be together. Our focus is on natural and organic parenting methods and timeless tidbits as we journey through parenthood together. Our seminars and workshops include: babywearing, birth, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, car seat safety, natural health and medicine, baby gear, childproofing and so much more! We end our day with amazing giveaways and each attendee gets a gift bag from our sponsors.”
With that, I am so looking forward to attending my local MommyCon in Austin so that I can meet parents who understand and respect my need to be green. There will be great companies to learn about natural products from. I’m also very excited about the expert knowledge that will be presented during the conference. I can’t forget that it’s a chance to gawk over cloth diapers and add more to my stash, as well as learn more about all of the different types since this will be my first time cloth diapering.
