Wanna Go Green This Earth Day? There’s an App for That.

It’s not always easy to know how to make green choices at the grocery store; the Greening Your Family App shows you how with well researched, eco-friendly product recommendations.

Portsmouth, NH, April 20, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Author Lindsey Carmichael partnered with BigForge LLC to develop the Greening Your Family app for Apple devices. The app, released by Apple on April 15th, 2012, is a road map for making eco-friendly product choices for a wide variety of food, personal care, and cleaning products. Do you wonder if you should buy organic or conventionally grown apples? Want to know which fish varieties have the least environmental contaminants? What about the safest brands of children’s shampoo or toothpaste to buy? This app answers all of these questions and more.

Content in the Greening Your Family app is based on the award-winning book by the same title, written by Portsmouth, New Hampshire resident Lindsey Carmichael, MPH. In 2002, when Lindsey’s young son developed asthma, she embarked on an extensive research project that led her to receive a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of New Hampshire.

While in graduate school Lindsey’s eye were opened to the disturbing reality that many of the products we consume contain ingredients known to pose a threat to human health, particularly the health of children. Her role as a mother to a young child fueled her desire to create a resource guide that made it easy for others to identify safe food, personal care, and cleaning products. The book, published by Peter E. Randall Publisher, was released on December 1st, 2009.

Lindsey has worked in the healthcare field for 15 years and is a frequent speaker about healthy ‘green’ living. She lives on the New Hampshire Seacoast with her husband and son. She developed the app in an effort to make the information in her book available to a broader audience. The Greening Your Family app is available for $0.99 from the App Store.
