    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 how much time it takes to research the best option for our family.  

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