Sweden an Inspiration to Greener Living

As our trip to Sweden is nearing its end, I’m still in awe about all the green living, environmental consciousness and how easy it is to find good organic foods and clothes here. If you go to a regular grocery store in Sweden like a Vons on Ralphs in the US you will find almost every time an organic option to whatever you’re looking for. If I’m buying baby formula or diapers there will be an organic option. If I’m buying milk, cheese or bread I can choose organic.

It’s not just the stores. The other day we went to a movie and there were not one but two commercials for recycling or green living. You can tell it’s something clearly on people’s minds and there is a demand for it. It makes me very hopeful for the rest of the world to join in soon and to make saving our planet and everyone living on it a priority soon.

About Green Mom

Fredrica Syren, the author and founder of Green-Mom.com, was born in Sweden. Her mother was a classically trained chef who introduced her to many eclectic flavors and skills at a young age. Her mom’s passion for the outdoors and gardening planted the seed for her own love of nature and healthy eating. She received a degree in journalism and has worked as a print, Internet and broadcasting journalist for many years with big businesses within Europe and the United States. 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. A longtime world traveler, foodie and career woman, she was exposed to many facets of life, but nothing inspired her more than becoming a mom. After her first-born, Fredrica began a food blog focusing on local, seasonal, organic & vegetarian dishes. 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. Green-Mom.com hosts many talented writers shedding light on ways to incorporate eco-friendly and nutritious practices for busy families. She is an advocate for organic, local and sustainable businesses. Fredrica hopes to inspire social change through her lifestyle, passion and business. Fredrica lives with her husband James Harker-Syren and their three children in San Diego, CA.
