The Organic Nanny Action Kit

February 4, 2011
Action  1! SIGN-UP for the Organic Nanny , our monthly email newsletter that provides healthy living tips, solutions, options, and steps to protect your children’s health. 

*Forward these monthly newsletters to ten friends you love and learn together about raising healthy families in a toxic world. Urge each person to forward the information to people they know.

Action 2! TAKE a virtual stroll through the Organic Nanny  and visit each room in the house filled with everything you need to know about hidden toxins and their healthy alternatives.

 Action 3 ! REPLACE three toxic household cleaning and pest control products with safe alternatives (and throw in a few organic fruits and veggies from a green grocer) and consider switching permanently. You can find recommended products in the Mommies and Nannies section of our website.
Action 4  !SUPPORT Our dream by becoming a member and purchasing our book ”The Organic Nanny’s Guide to Raising Healthy Kids’‘. Your financial support will enable us to sustain our national campaign  to educate parents throughout the United States on the importance of taking health protective steps for children in their homes, schools, and communities and spread our organic mission.

Action 5 !  STIMULATE discussion in your child’s school or day care center, your community center, or parks and recreation department as to what precautions are being taken to ensure that kids are not being exposed to toxic substances in the air, food, water or food products in each of these places. Use articles from our site to focus the conversation and start Organic Nanny Whole Foods Workshops.

Action 6!  SEND a letter or an email to your member of Congress asking him/her to ensure funding for the U.S. EPA’s Office of Children’s Health Protection — the only government office charged with protecting the environmental health of the nation’s children. We hear that this office will be dismantled soon, so your voice needs to be heard.
