I am excited to announce that the Real Diaper Association has a accredited a new leader from the Emerald Coast of Florida! Marissa Evans of Growing Green Bums has finished her leader training in Nonviolent Communication and is implementing her vision for advocating for and supporting parents and caregivers in using 100% reusable cloth diapers.
I'll allow Marissa to introduce herself:
"Marissa is a stay at home mommy to Hudson and loving wife to an Air Force man! She has a passion for the environment and the art of living simply, naturally and consciously. She is the owner of Growing Green Bums, a natural parenting store. She loves organic/whole food eats, nature, gardening and living "green"!"
After switching to cloth diapers when her son was 4 months old to continue her quest to reduce his exposure to toxic chemicals, Marissa wanted to help others find their way through the online cloth diaper marketplace to benefit their babies as well. Marissa has been holding classes at a local hospital and a health food store to spread the word in her community about the ease and benefits of cloth diapering. She loves working with new moms and families and is excited to provide an outlet where parents can come to support one another.
I "met" Marissa this summer on Monday night's #clothdiapers Twitter chat. I still see her there every week where she is always quick to try to help parents with their cloth diapering challenges. She is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, and the Emerald Coast community will greatly benefit from her efforts.
The first meeting of the Emerald Coast Real Diaper Circle will be in March at the Pensacola Ever'Man's Natural Food Coop. Get immediate online support and find out about upcoming activities by joining the online group.
