I am overjoyed to announce that my first ebook is now available for purchase! If you've been wanting to learn how to easily detox your home, live more sustainably, and make more eco-friendly purchases for the planet - this book is for you.
For the last three years, I researched, wrote, designed, and photographed the book while maintaining my farm and running a photography business. It's been a huge undertaking, but so worth it because I know you are going to be inspired and motived to detox your home and do more to help the earth when you read it!
Today we’re going to have a conversation all about greenwashing. You may or may not have heard this term used before; and in our opinion it’s something that most people fall victim to when trying to switch to a greener lifestyle!
Organically Becca and I chat all about:
Tune in to this episode and learn how to spot the signs, understand what terms are used and what they mean, and how to properly vet companies and products to see if they are truly sustainable and non-toxic.
I know how overwhelming holiday shopping can be. Sometimes it feels like you are buying “just to buy.”
When the holidays come around, the call to spend money on gifts is at a fever pitch. It can be hard to navigate everyone’s wants and needs, while also keeping in line with your own values.
That’s why I created The Green Gifting Guide.
You can easily shop for everyone from toddlers to friends to guys using the guide and give the earth a big hug while doing so.
All of these items can be purchased online, they benefit great companies or artisan makers, are non-toxic, and good for the environment.
I was so honored that fellow lady boss, Kelsey Kerslake, asked to interview me on her amazing podcast Behind The Brand. We talked about all things sustainability in this episode and I hope you give it a listen!
I spoke with Kelsey on how you can incorporate sustainable practices into your own business, even if it isn't a core function of your business. I include four key questions you can ask yourself to complete a simple "sustainability audit" that you can do in just one day.
You also get to hear a TON about my back story and how I wound up here at Green Willow Homestead. It's been a wild ride and I loved being able to reflect with Kelsey on my journey.

We hear these buzzwords quite a bit now and I know for me personally, the definition of sustainable felt murky until I started digging around to understand what it meant.
In this episode, Becca and I chat about what the word "sustainable" means in the context of choosing a greener life.
I started my green living journey a decade ago and have learned so much along the way. I developed the Conscious Consumer Method to help us make better purchases for the planet and healthier choices for our wellbeing.
This free downloadable guide is such a great way to dive into a greener lifestyle and I am so jazzed to offer it to you!
My hope is that the Conscious Consumer Method empowers you to take small steps towards living a more sustainable life.
The Conscious Consumer Method includes:
Thanks for stopping by Green Willow Homestead! From chicken rearing to composting, we've got our hands full and we love sharing what we've learned along the way. Follow along as we strive to live sustainably and turn these five acres from just property to a fully functioning small-scale homestead.
