You may have noticed a few changes here on Down To Earth Mother. I have recently opened the blog up to advertisers in the form of the banner ads you see on the right and as sponsored posts.
I spend a whole lot of time on this blog and I love it – after all, my passion is inspiring and informing mums to make greener choices. But I can no longer afford to spend so many hours working on Down to Earth Mother without some kind of financial compensation.
If you’re wondering, any money or goods I receive through Down to Earth Mother’s advertisers will be spent on more sustainable food or non-toxic kitchenware, hopefully one day an eco-friendly holiday… I want DTEM to help me live a greener life, so I can help you live a greener life. My own little closed-loop system.
And ten percent of all money received from advertisers is donated to Planet Ark because they rock.
Wherever possible, I will ask my advertisers to pass on an offer or discount to you, my lovely readers, to say THANKS. The idea is that we will together create a win-win-win situation for you, me and the advertisers. If you want to support me, the best thing you can do is support my advertisers too :)
Naturally, I will not promote businesses or services that do not genuinely offer a greener solution. In many cases, I have reached out to the advertiser, not the other way round so you know they’re brands I am impressed by.
If you ever feel advertising is intruding on your enjoyment of this blog, please contact me. I really value your feedback and support.
