Being a mom is hard. ecomom.com makes it easier.

We know how overwhelming parenthood can feel and how hard you work to make the right choices for your family, so we're here for one simple reason: to make your life easier. Our promise to you is that everything at ecomom.com is ecomom Approved, which means we do the research so you don’t have to!

“Ecomom is one of the most important things going on right now in the healthy parenting movement.” - Dr. Alan Greene

With an abundance of confusing and often overwhelming information, it can be challenging for concerned parents to differentiate between good products and good marketing. It’s with this challenge in mind that we developed the ecomom Approved program. ecomom Approved is an authentic and credible review process that gives every mom key information she needs to know before buying something. We do the research on important product attributes, such as its ingredients and packaging materials, so that
moms don’t have to. Once something is ecomom Approved, it means that we believe it is the safest and best in its category. While ecomom Approved status does not guarantee an item will be carried on our site, we will offer only ecomom Approved products to our customers.

Explains Co-Founder Kimberly Pinkson, “As a mother, I wanted to create a resource for moms that would alleviate some of the angst of parenting. ecomom Approved means you can check worrying about your purchases off the list, and instead, spend more time enjoying your family.” Adds CEO and Co-Founder Jody Sherman, “Our goal is to provide solutions for moms, so they can make simple, affordable, and healthy decisions for their families. ”

We realize the enormity of this responsibility and therefore look to the best research available, enlisting the help of experts at organizations such as Healthy Child Healthy World, as well as our research partners - a discriminating team of doctors, scientists, moms, dads, babies, and kids.

At ecomom, our commitment is to authenticity, integrity and the health of our children and environment, and we are grateful to you, and to Healthy Child Healthy World, for our shared commitment to a healthy and happy world.


The Chemical Composition of Your House

Most of us consider our home to be the safest place on the earth. But depending on your lifestyle, your home may be the source of some serious chemical hazards. I certainly don’t want to scare anyone out of their own home, so be sure to use your own judgement and wisdom when reading this infographic. I hope by now you know that many household cleaners contain toxic components and they should not be consumed… However, I found it useful to know about more natural alternatives to house maintenance using simple things like olive oil and vinegar.

If you’re an OCD neat freak germaphobe, maybe it’s best you skip today’s infographic. I’m sure your house is plenty safe and clean. For others with kids and pets, be sure you know the dangers in every zone of your house. I know everyone is tired of hearing “organic this” and “organic that”… but seriously, you’re basically as good as Survivorman if you can clean your whole house with just salt.

Even if you do buy a bunch of chemicals to clean your house…at least you support jobs for us chemical engineers. Let me know if you have any other cool “home remedies” for cleaning in the comments.
