EcoMom Alliance Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary

EcoMom Alliance was started just over a year ago by Kimberly Pinkson who had a vision of how mothers around the world could band together to bring a higher consciousness to green, eco-friendly living that would also create a sustainable future. Specifically, EcoMom Alliance is a non-profit 501c3 organization using positive community social interaction to:
1. Help reduce the climate crisis,
2. Inspire and empower mothers to help create a sustainable future, and
3. Lessen the isolation, stress and over extension commonly experienced by moms.

Over the past year and through the efforts of over 9,000 members, EcoMom Alliance has:

· Saved an estimated 72,000,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions;
· Improved the health of at least 22 children from changes EcoMoms have made in moving to organic and non-toxic foods and household cleaners (this is just the amount of letters they received but is probably a lot more).
· Inspired more than 600 moms (and a handful of dads and grandpas) through attending EcoMom Parties, leaving inspired to make changes in their lifestyle that will help propel the sustainability revolution.
· Helped at least 7 schools go green with many more on the way.
· Assisted 36,000 moms, dads, kids, grandmas and grandpas in making healthier choices for themselves, their families and future generations on our planet.
