How valuable is social media?

The Eco Chic I am a thirty-something wife and mother of two beautiful babies.  Big B, our independent, Earth loving, boy is 10 yr old and complains if you don’t recycle.  Lil’ B is our sassy and spunky preschooler.  Born in January 2009, Lil’ B was our natural baby: breastfed for 2 years, worn for as long as she’d let me, and a cloth diaper graduate.  Daddy is your typical sports fanatic who thinks his wife is crazy!  But he supports me in everything that I do and for that I love him.  Me, well I obviously care about the environment and want to conserve our natural resources for future generations.  As a mother I want to lead by example in the hopes that my child will grow up with the knowledge and passion to make a difference.  We’re not perfect and we certainly don’t always live the green lifestyle we strive to live – but we try really hard to lead by example!

My passion growing up was the arts and the ocean.  After my initial pursuit in graphic design I decided to switch my career path to Biology.  I have a degree in Biology with a focus on aquatic ecosystems.  My professional life has opened the environmental world for me.  Until a few years ago I was working for a company as an environmental contractor for a government agency.  My job function was to implement and manage their environmental program and continually look for ways to improve and reduce their environmental footprint that they leave on this nation.  I have job experience in Hazardous Materials, Waste Prevention and Recycling, Green Purchasing, Energy Managment, Water Management, Electronics Stewardship, Alternative Fuels, Environmental Management, Regulatory Compliance, Facilities Auditing, Training, and Outreach & Education.  Pretty much an eco-junkie!

In 2011 I made a career change and I’m now a Marketing & Social Media Manager for a cloth diaper retailer.  I’m so excited that I’ve been able to turn my passion for blogging and cloth diapers into a career.

The one thing I’ve learn through my life and career is that you have to make things easy.  I hope that I will be able to offer you common sense ideas that you can use to make a difference in your everyday lives.  I hope you enjoy my journey into reducing my families environmental footprint.

PR and Media Requests:  If you are interested in contacting me to feature your product(s) on The Eco Chic blog please email me; theecochic@gmail.com.  I can feature your product in a review, giveaway, or other social media campaign.  Ad space is also available for reasonable prices in my sidebar, leaderboard, below posts, and in my feeds.  Rates can be emailed upon request.  I also offer integrated social media marketing packages, social media consulting, and social media training for your company. I host Twitter Parties (although I’ve taken some time off from that at this time and will be scheduling again for Nov/Dec 2013) for eco-friendly products and companies.  If you’ve never attended one of my Twitter Parties please check them out.  They are fast paced, high energy, and will introduce your company or product to over 11,000 followers on Twitter alone.  My niche market is with the cloth diapering community which tends to also be very eco-friendly in their choices.  Some of my past clients include Rumparooz, EcoMom, Knickernappies, Franklin Goose, Rockin’ Green Soap, and Diaper Shops to name a few.  I’m always accepting new clients so please email me for more information.
