What is iGreenWoman?
iGreenWoman is an online publication dedicated to nurturing the health of both the community and the environment. The publication seeks to inform and empower readers, especially women, to lead health-conscious and sustainable lives. We focus on topics such as health and toxicity, natural products, technology and energy, beauty, fitness, and the great outdoors.
How did you come to found iGreenWoman?
When I started iGreen Media Group, the parent company for iGreenWoman, its main focus was to create content that made a difference in people’s lives. Women’s health and the health of future generations came to center stage in my heart, and the iGreenWoman eMagazine was born. As a mother who lost her 9-year old son to bone marrow transplant complications and cancer, and having a daughter who is planning to start a family, it is my calling to inform women about the urgent need to take toxins out of their lives.
What do you hope to accomplish through the e-zine?
iGreenWoman eMagazine envisions a world driven by women who unite in choosing products that are good for all of us. We collect the many voices that are transforming our communities—the voices of those who are keeping us healthy and vibrant—and put them on pages full of color and beauty. iGreenWoman has a grassroots approach: we recruit community members to help us fulfill our vision as one community. It is our responsibility to ensure that humans will continue to have enough fresh air and drinking water to survive on Mother Earth 100 years from now and beyond.
Who should subscribe to iGreenWoman?
I encourage everyone to subscribe and be inspired by reading and explore the great things other women are doing. Men will be able to read and learn about the voices of women who are standing up for a healthy future for all. We acknowledge the partnership of men in life’s journey. iGreenWoman invites men to express their voices and interests through our pages as well.
The magazine is suitable for all human beings living on this planet. No exceptions!
What are some of the most important ways that you’ve greened your own life?
In my eyes, being green is a journey, not a change. Although we can make small changes immediately, the shift comes when we incorporate new, green practices into our daily lives. Important changes begin with simple steps like changing your light bulbs to LED, purchasing eco-friendly beauty products, choosing organic and local foods, and choosing greener forms of transportation. Doing it all seems difficult, but just taking that one first step is the key to succeeding.
