Give Me A Great Green Deal!


OK, all.  Summer is just—about—OVER.  Many of you probable have the kiddos back in school already.  I’ve got one down and one more to go.  And I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood to celebrate!!  Now, don’t get me wrong.  I had the time of my life this summer.  My girls and I had a great time hiking, swimming, visiting, camping, playing, and just lounging about in our own backyard.

But now that they are back at school (just about), I’m ready to do a little something for me.  I’m not much of a shopper, but I do love it when I get a great green deal…especially on little things that perk up my day.  So check it, there is a new website called Hip Green Deals that is right up my alley these days.  Here’s how it works: has partnered with some of the top leading brands in the eco-fashion industry to give you (and me!) big fat discounts from companies such as The Andean Collection, BYOB, Moonrise Jewelry, and Priti Nails NYC.

HipGreenDeals founder and Green Parent Christine Altavilla had this to say about her desire to launch this great green business.

As a new mom I found myself wearing the same black dress all too often in order to dress conservatively and hide the baby weight. I needed to freshen up my wardrobe but I wanted to be environmentally and socially responsible just as I was teaching my son to be. I chose to purchase a few key accessories rather than spending the money on new clothes.  Because eco-friendly jewelry is handmade, I tend to get many compliments and questions about where I make my purchases. I created to make eco-friendly shopping easy, fun and affordable for women like myself.”

Thanks Christine for making these great green deals available to moms like me!
