EcoPlum Salutes Green Moms by Gia Machlin, May 01 2013, 0 Comments

It's almost Mother's Day! Yay! One of my favorite days of the year! I recently attended an event about food waste, moderated by Ron Gonen, the Deputy Commissioner of the New York City Department of Sanitation and co-founder of Recyclebank. Ron mentioned that the composting pilot, started by a few of my close friends in the District 3 Green Moms group, would be expanding citywide!

That got me thinking - how many green initiatives are spearheaded by moms who are just trying to make the world a better place for their kids and their communities? I bet there are quite a lot! In honor of Mother's Day, for the entire month of May, EcoPlum will honor green moms who are taking amazing eco actions and changing our world for the better in our profile series called EcoPlum Salutes Green Moms.

The profile series covers: the moms who introduced composting into New York City public schools; a green mom from the entertainment world; a mother’s guide to wellness and living a healthy green lifestyle; a tribute to one of our most influential politicians and green moms; stories about some of the moms who make products for EcoPlum; and other features to be announced. EcoPlum will also collect personal tributes from readers about their environmentally active moms.

We encourage you to submit your own photos, videos and stories about inspiring green moms (maybe yours?) at
