Ten years ago, it was easy for me to turn a blind eye.
I was single, in my twenties, starting my first business and bartending at night. I didn’t have the extra money to spend on organic food, clean beauty products or sustainable fashion.
I didn’t feel the need to learn more about toxins, parabens, formaldehyde and endocrine disruptors either.
Ignorance really was bliss, and I was living life the way I always had.
But at some point over the last decade, it became harder to look away.
I developed dermatitis on my scalp (which I later found out was from my shampoo), I had an allergic reaction on my eyelid (which I later found out was from my makeup) and there were nights when my legs were so itchy that I thought I would never fall asleep (I later found out it was from my laundry detergent).
The truth is, we are all living in a potent, environmentally-toxic world.
A world that is selling us products and food and clothing that are not only harmful to the planet, but harmful to our health.
We can try to do our own research and look at ingredient labels, but it’s often too difficult to know who to trust.
Nevertheless, it’s up to us to make the change.
If the year 2020 has shown us anything, it’s that it’s never been more important to take care of ourselves and the ones we love.
And I want to help.
Today The Clean Living Podcast launches with its first FOUR episodes.
These mini episodes, under 10 minutes, can be listened to one at a time while driving to the post office, folding laundry or making dinner.
Or you can “binge” a week’s worth of episodes all at once — in less than 30 minutes.
Here’s what I’ve got for you this week:
- Ep. 01 LISTEN FIRST! (2 mins.) An important note that I want to make sure you know.
- Ep. 02 DEODORANT (4 mins.) This was the very first product change I made.
- Ep. 03 CLOTHING (5 mins.) Most people don’t know this about their clothing.
- Ep. 04 TRASH BAGS (4 mins.) An unglamorous topic that can have a big impact on your health.
We’ve been working really hard over the past month to bring you a high quality podcast that offers the information you need without requiring much time or effort from your busy schedule.
I want to give a shout-out to my podcast manager Myesha Henderson, who has such an awesome new addition to my small team. Her experience and attention to detail made this happen within the short time-frame I was hoping for.
Once you’re able to listen to a few episodes, don’t forget that I’m hosting a Clean Living Giveaway on Instagram.
Follow the directions here for the chance to win products from Factory45’er Vesta, The Clean Beauty Box, Branch Basics and Last Object.
Thank you so much for your early support — I truly hope this podcast is helpful to you and inspires small changes that have big impact.
