We are concerned about the health of the environment and how that affects the development and health of our children. Our membership is culturally and experientially diverse, spanning many shades of "green" and representing different steps toward sustainable, healthful and holistic living. Individuals are encouraged to be supportive and accepting of even the smallest effort and progress! It is not about eco-perfectionism, comparisons or judgments. Locally, we are focused on creating a supportive and sustainable parenting community among current, expecting and future mothers.
We hold a wide variety of meetings, ranging from play dates to Moms' Night Out, casual Coffee Chats, Mom's Making Little Changes (MMLC) workshops, healthy organic cooking classes as well as book and film reviews 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. Together, we seek to share and gain knowledge, and find and offer support for 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. Our activism is primarily non-confrontational. Instead, we directly engage with individuals, businesses, schools, and other community organizations to promote change.
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.
