Better for our babies, better for our planet.
Eco Baby Expo is all about the natural, organic, unprocessed lifestyle. We wanted to take a moment to showcase those who are raising their children to be responsible and eco-friendly, those who put their family’s health first, those who make an impact on our children’s future, and those who live a healthy lifestyle that may inspire others.
By sharing their stories, we hope to bring inspiration to our like-minded followers. We hope you can share in the joy of motherhood, fatherhood, and the joys that growing up green can bring! #GrowingUpGreen

Proud Owner & Author of Pretty Organic Mommy, a blog about organic living, creative thinking and holistic parenting.
My name is Nataly Ezra, also known as “Pretty Organic Mommy”, a blog I created so that I could share my views, ideas and results through organic parenting, homeopathic remedies, attached parenting methods and my views on my favorite green products I use on a daily basis on myself and my family.
My greatest achievements towards living a green lifestyle is sharing my knowledge with others. After my son was born, so did my concerns. One of my main concerns was “what I would do if he caught a cold”, my goal was to do the best I could by providing him natural solutions before his colds or ear aches ever had the chance to escalate into infections. With the right guidance, dedication and research I did it. I achieved my goal by making various homeopathic solutions, which stopped almost every single cold he had in their tracks! My passion for living a healthier lifestyle didn’t just start there, what truly inspired me was my pregnancy, I decided I wanted to know about every product i was using to clean, as well as the products i was putting on my body even if it was something simple such as nail polish.
One of the greatest challenges I face on a daily basis since becoming a crunchy mom is the feedback or comments from parents who don’t follow a healthy lifestyle or know much about living green. The great thing that comes from this is opening up other parents perspective’s through conversations and showing them how natural ways work.
I am assuming this is every parents wish. As a stay at home mom, with no help from the outside world I would say finding the energy to write more blog posts so that i could share the millions of ideas, remedies, recipes and natural parenting techniques I have in my head.
If its one thing I am always doing its making sure i feel good about myself, one way i always do this is by doing my hair and makeup before i head out anywhere. I follow through with eating a healthy lifestyle which really plays a huge roll on how i feel throughout the day and of course my coffee, because this mommy needs her coffee.
My husband calls me the recycle police because I literally check the garbage can for items that should have gone into the recycling bin. Another way I am raising my son to be more eco conscious is through being vegetarian, supporting local homemade products, farmers markets and reusing our bags at the grocery store.
One thing my son loves, is fruits of all kinds especially berries of all kinds bu,t his favorite lately has been broccoli. The remarks we get from people who see us eating out when he has a handful of broccoli in his hand and mouth is absolutely priceless. I always say introduce them to healthy snacks early and they will never question it.
At the Eco Baby Expo, I would love to see more healthy options for children’s on the go snacks.
