As you start your journey to living with less plastic, you will soon see how zero waste is connected with minimalism and a simpler lifestyle.

You will also see the benefits of less synthetic chemicals for you and your family and how everything you do has an impact on the planet.

So here is to our journey to simplicity and treading lightly!

Hello and welcome!

I am Allison a.k.a. the Greenish Mama.

My journey started unintentionally through my job as a teacher. The wages I earned in Silicon Valley, California meant that I learned quickly how to be frugal and I experimented with making my own body butter and deodorant.

I had no idea that the life I was living was good for the planet.

Flash forward to 2019. I’m a mum of two girls and suddenly could think of little else than the world they are growing up in. 

I want better for them.

So, here we are. I am now writing about the ways you and I can do better for our kids.

I hope the information I have to share makes it easier for you to do the same without the hours of searching and frustrations that go along with your new lifestyle.

I would love to hear from you and where you are in your journey. So drop me a line, introduce yourself, and let me know how I can help you. I’m looking forward to chatting with you!
