Green to Grow-Baby Bottles

Green-to-Grow new line of baby bottles is the answer to harmful plastics. This socially responsible company started by a conscientious couple who after the birth of their first baby was inspired to create a line of safe green baby bottles that are bisphenol A free. The bottles are affordable and available online and in health food stores.

bisphenol a controversy
In February 2007, the public advocacy group Environment California Research & Policy Center published a report titled Toxic Baby Bottles: Scientific Study Finds Leaching Chemicals in Clear Plastic Baby Bottles. The report describes the harmful effects of the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A (BPA), a developmental, reproductive, and neural toxicant found in polycarbonate plastic—the material used to make the vast majority of baby bottles.

In the Kitchen. On the Mat. In your Life. Latham Lectures at Laughing Lotus

Latham Lectures at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center NYC
Sunday, October 12th from 2-5pm
59 W.19th street, 3rd floor between 5th & 6th avenues

In the kitchen. On your mat. In your life:
Principles for mindful eating, and supporting your practice and lifestyle through nutrition.

Join Latham Thomas for her second engaging lecture at the Laughing Lotus Yoga Center.
In this interactive lecture we will explore mindful eating- eating with awareness, attunement to the subtle energies at work in our bodies and in the make up of our food, listening for feedback from the body, and fueling our yoga practice with food. We will discuss how to slow down, be present, enjoy, and release the meal. We will discuss seasonal and eco-friendly eating- how it prepares us for the cycles of nature and why it is important to let the seasons guide our eating and our practice. A portion of our lecture will address transitioning to a more plant-based diet to support our bodies and the sustainability of our planet.

Recipe packets and light snack will be provided. Lecture attendees will also receive 10% off any wellness service provided by Latham Thomas. Students and attendees will also receive a discount coupon for Hyde Yoga Organic apparel. This offer is also open to all Laughing Lotus students for a limited time only.

Visit the Laughing Lotus Yoga Center site for details.
