Teaching our children where our products come from is more important now than ever. There are so many products that are made without the label of telling us what is toxic and what is not toxic. There are so many products that are made far way, that use energy to bring those products to us and we're not even aware of that carbon footprint that it takes to bring it here. Teaching our children that it is important, so that we can begin to make choices of what company we are going to support. Helping changes the way businesses are done, when it comes to the products we are going to use.

Steven Kiralla

Eco Dad

Steven was born and grew up in Southern California. His parents were from Lebanon and had lived in a village and a society that was very in tune with nature and the natural cycles of their surroundings, and very self sufficient with growing food. At a young age he was attracted to his mother’s gardening passion and her magical ways of growing food. In 1970 he was graduating from high school, and the first Earth Day was April of that year. Earth Day made a positive change in the way he saw the planet, the air, water, population and our waste. He started wondering how we can live in our natural world with balance and less damage. Steven has a Bachelor of Science degree in
 Horticultural and Agricultural Sciences. After college, he volunteered for the Peace Corps and spent two years working in Colombia, South America.

In 1999, he and his wife helped found Seven Arrows Elementary School in Pacific Palisades, California, where both of their children attended K-6. Steven created the school’s edible garden and taught gardening and cooking to the students. He also started the Environmental/Green Committee that helped the school act daily in “green thinking” ways. He loves to be outdoors, hiking, biking, surfing, camping, skiing, playing tennis and anything else to challenge his mind and body.
