Birungi Ives, Founder and Editorial Director of the Global Echo Online Forum, in July 2010 Issue of Bay State Parent Magazine
You get the urge to do many things when you’re a mom including an urge you may not have felt before, a calling to become an activist in nutrition, health and environmental issues. Anything that impacts the future of our children awakens the mama bear in us.
Birungi Ives is a great example of this. The Ayer mom was always somewhat conscious of the environment, but it wasn’t until she became pregnant with her son, that her interest in green living took off.
Birungi started to think, “What changes or choices am I going to make to have the healthiest child possible?” She didn’t want to put anything in her body that might harm her son.
