Over the many years I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve noticed that people are increasingly interested in knowing more about the products they buy – where they come from, how they got here, and whether or not they are safe and healthy for humans and OK for the planet too. In other words, they want to make more mindful purchase decisions.
The good news is, there are LOTS of better products available today! What can be tough though, is finding them. Unless you do a lot of shopping and web surfing, you may not know where to find those greener, safer, better things you are looking for. Knowing this motivated me to create a resource hub for people in search of better products: the Mindful Momma Marketplace!
The goal of the Mindful Momma Marketplace is to make it easy for you to find better goods for your green & healthy life. Since I happen to love spending time researching the health and safety of products and surfing the web for the coolest new eco products, it’s an easy job for me! I hope you find that it saves you time and is a valuable resource!
Here’s what the Mindful Momma Marketplace has to offer:
Goods is a specially curated list of online shopping sites and product lines that I’ve tried and loved. You’ll find links for safer beauty and personal care products, eco-friendly items for home and life, sustainably produced clothing and accessories, and sources for natural and organic food. Many of the companies offer special discounts and deals – so look closely! (FYI – no company has paid to be part of the marketplace, although it does contain some affiliate links, which add no extra cost to you, but a small commission for me if you make a purchase.)
When a tried and true brand introduces an awesome new product, or a really cool new-to-me product line comes across my desk, I want to share that with you ASAP! Look for the Featured Product and links to more Product Spotlights within the Goods section of the marketplace.
Let’s say you’re in the market for a new lipstick, or looking for an eco-friendly baby shower gift. The Guides section of the marketplace will point you in the right direction. I’ve got more product roundups in the works for sustainable apparel, facial cleansers, subscription boxes, baby food and more!
