Hello and Welcome!

I’m so glad you’re here. We have a lot of work to do and I’m hoping to be a resource for you as we embark on a journey to keep cleaning up our acts. I know it’s not easy being a conscious consumer. It takes time and money — two scarce resources for many of us — to make the best decisions. Before we can make changes, we have to first know how we can do better. Then we have to do a lot of research to find the best products with the best value, all while being conscious of how our choices impact the world around us. We not only have to think about ourselves, but also our family, our neighbors, our community, humankind, and the whole planet. This is no small feat! And once we are aware of our impact, if we want to lessen our eco-footprint, we have to understand how we can make positive changes to our lifestyle by making responsible decisions and buying the best products. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, Gandhi’s wise and beautiful words, “be the change you wish to see in the world”. It all starts with us, making the world a better and healthier place, and I’m determined to find ways to help all of us make small changes that have a big impact.

A little about me:

I’m a former clean beauty professional of 10+ years and current enthusiast. As a skin care professional, I worked in product development, R & D, and as a formulator and customer care specialist, so I know a thing or two about what people want and expect (and don’t want or expect!) in their skin care products. I also know what makes a clean beauty product amazing. I now make many of my own skin care products and share them with friends and family. It’s a labor of love that may some day turn into something more, but for now, I’m enjoying learning as much as I can and experimenting on my loved ones. 😊

As a devoted lover of our planet, I’ve spent years learning about the ways in which nature provides for us and helps keep us looking and feeling great. In my MBA program, which focused on sustainable enterprise and how business can be a force for positive change, I came to understand how powerful we are as consumers. Collectively our money can change the world by buying eco-friendly products and supporting sustainable and environmentally responsible businesses. Now I’ve decided that I can make a difference by also sharing what I know and learn about how we can make our lives and planet as happy and healthy as they can be. I know for a fact we can take care of ourselves, and not only limit our own ecological footprint, but also give back to those that provide for us, and this includes our beautiful planet! Even when money is tight and time is scarce (two situations I’m very familiar with!) we can be powerful agents of change and guardians of our environment and well-being. I’d love for you to join me on a journey to discover the best of clean living and beauty under the stars.
