Sometimes I sit and look at my baby and toddler and wonder what will their future be like? What job will they decide to do when they are older? What talents will they have? What hobbies will they have? What will the world and the environment be like for them?
From the moment I became a parent I wanted to do what was best for my children, as soon as my first born entered the world I knew I wanted to do everything I could to give him the best in life that I could offer, and I don’t mean money as I am firm believer that your time is what your children need, not lots of money spent them. One of the first things I did for my first born when I became a parent, after I delivered him with a natural delivery, was to breastfeed him as I knew that would be the best thing I could do for him, and I knew then that I wanted to continue to do my best for him in every way I could. And I have been continuing to do what I can for him for and my daughter since she was born too.
I also believe that it is really important for us all to do what we can with the helping the environment for the future of our children and their children.
We as a family always do recycling we have 2 bins in our kitchen one for household waste and one for recycling as I am firm believer in recycling and it is so easy to do.
I use Persil Non Bio for washing our clothes as it enables me to do my washing at a lower temperature but still gets every day marks and stains out of my children’s clothes. I only use Non Bio for my washing, as with my baby I don’t want any chemicals on her clothes touching her baby delicate skin. Persil has backed a global initiative ‘Learning for Tomorrow’ to help give children in some of the worlds toughest areas the opportunity of a quality education.
I decided to take part in the #brightfuture challenge with Unilever. Unilever’s brightfuture intiative focuses on small changes in everyday life that can make long term big differences.
Unilever has helped 482 million people to improve their health and hygiene. I think hygiene, especially with young children, is so important, we take great care to make sure hygiene standards are high in our house as especially with a baby and toddler it is important for preventing germs.We use Domestos in our bathroom to ensure good hygiene. Domestos has committed to helping 25 million people gain improved access to a toilet by 2020.
