Eco Pinspiration: 12 Pinterest Boards for Greener Living

Green Pinterest Boards to Follow via mindfulmomma.com

You know how overwhelming Pinterest can be. Like when you feel like the biggest loser because you didn’t have time to bake a rainbow cake for an after school snack like all those other moms did. Yeah, that. For Pinterest to be fun instead of defeating, I think you need to have the right attitude about it. Pinterest with a purpose – not Pinterest the soul-sucking competition. Do you agree?
