Episode 36: Non-Toxic Living – Part 2

Welcome back, Sandee and Callie! In Part 2 of this interview, we continue the conversation on non-toxic living and talk about what we can look for as consumers in the products we’re purchasing. If you missed Part 1, you’re gonna wanna go back and listen to that first to get the full picture on why toxins are so…bleh! And what products we can find toxins in. If you’re ready to hear more about the solution, you’re in the right place!

We already heard about why we want to avoid toxins, so now what? Well, first, Sandee and Callie give us a little background on what ingredients ARE in their products and what makes them so effective. They share what we can look for in products and tips for the consumer to utilize, as well as places where we can do credible, trustworthy research (yep, you read that right!). What they have to share about using products that come in solid form instead of liquid form (both for us and for the planet!) is going to rock your world – you won’t be able to look at that bottle of shampoo the same ever again!

I told you before that the three of us go down a few rabbit holes during this interview, and you’ll see that that continues here, especially as Sandee and Callie give us recommendations on things they’re loving right now. They have some great ideas for books and shows that you can add to your quarantine bucket-list as well as some very valuable information on one of my favorite funguses – mushrooms. I learned so much from Sandee and Callie and I know you will too. I’m so grateful as a consumer that there are ladies like them running ethical, sustainable and conscientious businesses for the good of us all. Make sure you check out their favorite products linked below!
