On the third Friday of every month, I have a column called Eco-Friendly Fridays. I started this column because I run across so many amazing organic, non-food items that I believe people ought to know about. While organic food is certainly a major component of living an organic lifestyle, it is not the only part.

Before she became the one of the country’s most successful juice entrepreneurs, Annie Lawless, co-founder of Suja Juice, suffered from awful eczema, allergies, chronic ear infections, asthma and Celiac disease during her teenage years.

The best part about having Living Maxwell is that it gives me a vehicle to share important and interesting stories with the world.
While my focus will continue to center around food, I have decided to start a new monthly column called Eco-Friendly Friday. This will showcase some amazing organic, non-food items that I believe people ought to know about, and it will appear on the third Friday of every month. I already have several fantastic things lined up for the next few columns, so stay tuned!
When the founders of Bears for Humanity, Vijay and Renju Prathap (above), became the proud parents of twins two years ago, their worldview totally shifted. The only thing that mattered was the health and well-being of their two little ones, and that meant a shift to consuming organic food and purchasing the safest toys and clothes. Read More »
