We are a diverse group of women who practice and promote sustainable, healthful & holistic living because we are concerned about the health of the environment and how that affects the development and health of our children. Most of our moms actively promote sustainability and natural living, not only through our meetings, but by being involved in the greater community.
This group is about fostering a community oriented toward intrinsic values by offering a forum for open-minded discussions about the common goals we have for our families, our community and the future of the environment. It is not about eco-perfectionism, comparisons or judgments. Our membership is culturally and experientially diverse, spanning many shades of "green" and representing different steps toward holistic living, and individuals are encouraged to be supportive and accepting of even the smallest effort and progress!
Our Lehigh Valley group is part of an international group of EcoMoms, but we are completely autonomous in how we hold our meetings, topics, and events. Locally, we are focused on creating a supportive and sustainable parenting community among current, expecting and future mothers. Our activism is primarily non-confrontational. Instead, we directly engage with individuals, businesses, schools, and other community organizations to promote change.
While we hold a wide variety of events from playdates, Mom Night Out events, cooking classes, Moms Making Little Changes (MMLC) workshops, and Community Events (Earth Day, VegFest, etc). The events on our calendar are made up of what the members are interested in doing. If you are interested in getting a certain type of activity out of this group, please host an event in your home or at a local restaurant or park.
Women have been instrumental in the environmental movement from the beginning. We are often the primary caregivers, and the health of our children is in our hands. We also control up to 80% of the purchases in our homes, giving us a powerful consumer voice. But the most effective avenue we have for change is by teaching our children, the next generation, to live responsibly and sustainably through example and open-minded discussion. As both role models and a powerful market force, women in the Lehigh Valley are quietly mobilizing to foster an environmentally, socially and economically vibrant and healthy future.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
