Aloha! I'm Carien. I live in South Africa in an area called the Swartland (Black Land). I live on a small holding (Homestead) and I am a full time house wife with one husband (yes, only one), one son, one dog, a few sheep and plenty of chickens. Living as natural as possible is a passion of mine. Inclined to a mostly organic vegetarian diet I tend to post healthy food recipes, green tips and information on natural and organic and natural living.

We know you love your family and work hard to provide only the best for them. Why then, would you feed them poison? It might sound dramatic to simplify it so, but with so many genetically modified foods with suspect farming methods in our supermarkets, how sure can you be that your family is eating healthily? There are tangible health benefits to using organic products that can be traced to a healthier, more balanced body and life.

Most mothers don’t think twice before putting that disposable diaper on their baby’s bottom. I reckon they should give it some serious thought, don’t you? They ought to think about where those diapers end up when thrown away. They should also think about how long that diaper will stay where it’s going when they throw it away and they should consider what all the ‘wonderful’ chemicals in the diaper does to their little ones and the environment they have to live in.
