About Us

Our names are Katie and Geoff, and we co-founded GreenActiveFamily based on our own experiences as parents. 

From the moment we first got pregnant, we’ve been shocked by all the chemicals and materials companies put in children’s products. Not to mention the environmental cost of these chemicals! 

We started GreenActiveFamily to help other parents make informed purchasing decisions when it comes to buying products for their babies’ nurseries. 

Our mission? To become the number one resource on the internet for parents who want their babies to have an eco-friendly, toxin-free childhood.

Geoff and Katie Matthews, Founders Green Active Family
