Eco-Festivals 2018

By Fredrica Syren:

 Summer is festival season, and traditional festivals are not sustainable — and usually are really bad for the planet. The good news is that there are plenty of green and eco-friendly, even some zero-waste, festivals happening this summer. What could be better than a group of like-minded individuals gathering at a festival celebrating earth with good food, music and other fun activities?! Here is a list of my favorite festivals taking place this summer.

Her mom’s passion for the outdoors and gardening planted the seed for her own love of nature and healthy eating.

After her mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and she with pre-cancer, Fredrica changed her career to become a full time yoga teacher and activist.

Years of food blogging developed into the cookbook Yummy in My Tummy, Healthy Cooking for the Whole Family. Upon the arrival of her second child, Fredrica founded Green-Mom.com. Her vision was to establish a site providing insight about gardening, home and personal care, baby & child, and of course food & nutrition.
