Here at The Positive Hypnobirthing Company, not only do we care about our lovely clients, we also care about the environment. I’m an old hippy eco warrior at heart. I still use the ‘bags for life’ my mum made for me out of my old clothes back in the early 1970s. And most of those clothes were made from upcycled jumble sale treasures.
Zero waste classes
When you come to my classes at TPHC HQ, you will find that the herbs in my herbal tea come freshly picked from my garden. Fennel, Lemon Verbena, Peppermint, Spearmint, etc., all organically grown, healthy and zero waste. If there are no herbs in season, you will be offered Weleda organic herbal teas instead. When in season, we have a bowl of freshly picked apples from the garden, or perhaps even a homemade apple cake or organic biscuits.
Helping you to be eco conscious parents
If you wish to know more about being an eco parent, we can help guide you with things such as cloth wipes and cloths bums. It’s a minefield out there, but Becca and Jo are raising their little ones with every thought for their carbon footprint. So will be happy to share their experiences with you, if that’s a path you want to follow.
Homemade organic goodies
I don’t put pesticides on my skin or in my body, so I don’t expect my clients to either when giving them gifts. Hence at your last class you will be presented with a lovely gift bag with a difference. It will be packed full of organic goodies, such as a jar of homemade labour day bath salts and organic nipple balm, also using herbs and flowers from my garden (which my clients tell me is the best nipple balm EVER!)
Even our hand sanitiser is made from organic essential oils. And our toilet paper is as eco-friendly as possible too!
Good solid scientific evidence
Of course, you don’t have to be a hippy or an eco-warrior to benefit from our classes. We have clients from all walks of life, with a variety of backgrounds and beliefs and our classes are based on good solid scientific evidence. The same applies to our teachers at TPHC. We all have thorough training as Hypnobirthing Practitioners as well as a number of other disciplines. Becca, for example, has a background in sports science. Jo, like me, has a background in counselling and hypnotherapy. But we all care about the environment and the future of the planet for your little ones. So we all do our bit to make our company and our classes zero waste, wherever possible.
We’ve noticed that our clients care about the environment too and they encourage us to do our bit.
Blogging about the environment
And so I thought I’d do a series of blogs on zero waste and making and growing your own goodies.
I will share some of my recipes so that you too can make and grow some goodies at home. It’s also a great opportunity to teach your little ones how to make stuff, rather than buying. Jo and Becca will write some blogs about various aspects of eco parenting.
If you have anything specific that you would like to know about, do comment below and we’ll see if we can blog about it. If we can’t, we are very likely to know someone who can!
