The goal of this blog is to share some of the information I’ve studied in the last few years about healthy living, including the following topics:

  • cleaning without toxic chemicals
  • changing over personal care products (which absorb right through the skin) to ones that don’t contain toxins and known carcinogens; including suggestions on all the things I’ve tried; what works, what doesn’t
  • improving our diet towards “real” foods (Weston Price style), including the yummiest recipes I can muster
  • better ways to live simply, have less trash, and consume less (joyfully and gratefully!)
  • find the best prices for the best products (“green” and “organic” don’t have to be expensive)

I have many successes in each of these areas, as well as areas in which I want to grow. And I’ll bet it’s the same for you; you know you’re doing well in some areas, but there are things you wish you had some extra time for research, or trial and error. That’s why I named my blog Clean Green Start; we need to celebrate all the good starts we have made, and continue to develop good habits! I’m hoping my blog will become a resource for you to find summaries of info on related sites, or to see my product recommendations, or to just join me so we can encourage each other in creating a home that is healthy and happy!

A few words about me: I am the happy wife of Heiko and mother of our six children. I keep quite busy as a stay-at-home mom, and homeschool teacher. I want to be the very best wife and mother I can be, and I know that includes the decisions I make for my family in diet, medicines, chemicals, personal care products, and all other products that come into our home. I believe in good stewardship of the planet God has given us to share, and I believe in the power of consumer education in a free country to change regulations. I’m delighted that we already have so many good choices available to us!
