My Healthy Baby Home Party

After having to reschedule multiple times, I was finally able to host my Seventh Generation Healthy Baby Home party.


I entered for the opportunity to host one of these parties sponsored by Healthy Child - Healthy WorldSeventh Generation, YoBaby yogurt and Stonyfield Farms, and I was elated when I was selected to participate!


Healthy Child Healthy World is leading a movement that educates parents, supports protective policies,  and engages communities to make responsible decisions, simple everyday choices, and well-informed lifestyle improvements to create healthy environments where children and families can flourish.


In preparation for my friends to come over, I cleaned the house with all of my Seventh Generation products, boiled a pot of cinnamon and apples as an alternative to chemical-laden air fresheners, as well as prepared a completely organic array of snacks and drinks, including organic fruit, organic cookies, organic lemonade and more!  I even replaced standard napkins and paper towels with reusable cloth napkins :)

The Organic Spread



The Organic Beverages




In the living room where everyone was to congregate, my centerpiece was an array of great samples that I received to give out.  Next to this, I lay a spread of "green" books for people to peruse.


After all of my friends showed up with their little ones, we watched a very powerful video called WAKE UP!  Take a moment and watch it. You won't regret it!





Afterwards, we played a game of Environmental Bingo.  It was quite fun and led to a lot of great discussion about how we currently are taking green steps, as well as ways that we could.  A couple of the girls won great prizes that were given to me from our sponsors, including diapers, cleaners and a YoBaby Eric Carle growth chart!


Next, we had the kids get involved as the moms traced the hands and feet of our babies on postcards.  The mommas then wrote short messages to our congressmen to change the Toxic Chemicals Act.




I handed out great samples of Seventh Generation and had a tasting of YoBaby and Stonyfield yogurts :)


























It was such an amazing party and I felt so good knowing that I was helping so much!  I wish I could continue to do things such as this to feel as I am continuing to contribute on a daily basis!
