All About Natural Products Why do you want to make the switch to more natural/organic products?: (13:40)
We’ve talked about the The Environmental Working Group before – they are a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. They want to help create change from the grocery store to our homes. They are the forces behind the Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen lists for produce and they recently came out with an amazing app to help you decipher which food and beauty products are healthy and safe for you and your family.
Links to their Skin Deep website and app!
Listener Questions; 1. A list of natural and cruelty-free products would be awesome! (19:30)
