Green and Organic Living Made Easy and Affordable

Green parenting, Dagmar's Home




Having grown up in Germany, I’m all about being green, reusing, and recycling.

I often can’t believe the waste that’s being generated here in the U.S. I still remember seeing the mountain of trash that was generated after just one lunch period in a high school I was visiting as a teenager.

There’s so much you can do without much effort to help the environment. It’s so easy to go green!

Another passion of mine is making people aware of the danger of GMO (gene-manipulated) food.

Organic food and organic living is the only way to go — I tell you why and teach you how to save a lot of money on organic food with coupons.

Some of my articles with green living tips and resources:

Here are many more green living posts.

Green Living Resources:

  • — search for recycling centers in your area and recycle anything, plus recycling 101
  • Freecycle — giving and getting stuff for free
  • Visions Paint Recycling — they make low-VOC paint out of recycled paint for about $15 a gallon. For no upcharge; you can send them a swatch and they will mix what you desire.

I live with Alcoa, in São Paulo area, and we have very green lifestyle here (which is different from other Latin America countries, for example Argentina and Mexico where they not have respect for nature).
As global example, we use packaging many goods with aluminium which is a metal that can be cycled so when packaging is ended we can recycle the material and resell it for new, without touching the nature.
It is an example for other countries too, for example in Europe where they must learn still.
Best Regards,
São Paulo area

My mother is German and we have visited our family in Germany many times. Definietly seems like a more eco-friendly lifestyle there than here. Something so simple as reusing the bottles from beer, soda and water needs to happen in the US. I currently have found some local milk dairies that reuse bottles, but that’s it!

Hallo Dagmar,

Nice to find another green mum at BlogFrog – where I’ve just left a reply for you in your forum.

BTW – whereabouts in Germany did you grow up?
