Introducing Your New Holistic Parenting Magazine Team! (And a special offer for the holidays!)


Hello, holistic friends! As you may have already heard, the Founder and Publisher of Holistic Parenting Magazine, Kathryn Los, has handed operations over to a new team, and we are working on some exciting changes for you in the new year.

To celebrate, we are offering a coupon code good for $5.00 off of an annual subscription to Holistic Parenting Magazine. The code HOLIDAY5 is only valid through December 31st, though, so don’t delay!* 

One of the changes we’ll be bringing you in the new year is an Holistic Marketplace featuring earth-friendly and family-friendly products reviewed by our team of parents and children on our very own, soon-to-be-launched YouTube channel. We will also be offering exclusive HPM tank tops, onesies, book totes, and other items sourced from small, socially responsible, independently owned businesses, and limited-edition, hand-crafted items from talented artisans. Our mission for Holistic Marketplace is to support small, eco-conscious businesses, explore exciting new products created by out-of-the-box thinkers and innovators, and support our local artisan communities. 

We are also bringing in some fresh, new voices to join the fantastic writing team you already know and love. In addition to continuing to share articles on childbirth, breastfeeding, and peaceful parenting, among the other eco- and family-friendly articles you are used to, we will be featuring new sections on holistic living; social and environmental responsibility; fun and quirky children’s activities to help them get to know and love nature; and a Parents’ Talk section which will share real and honest stories of the daily struggles and joys of life with children. Our mission for the future of Holistic Parenting Magazine is to bring you thought-provoking, well-researched, expertly-written articles covering natural and earth-friendly living and parenting as well as current events, social issues, and environmental concerns that affect the world our children will inherit. 

Our vision is to create a holistic community, not just to offer a well-crafted magazine, and so we will be asking for your input and participation through interactive question-and-answer sessions, podcasts, and more on our online platforms on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest as we move forward.

Now, without further ado, let me introduce you to your new Holistic Parenting Magazine team:
