How We Got Started
When I first met my wife, she was already following the practices we do today.
Because of some health issues it was imperative for her to be very conscious about what she was putting in her body, on her skin, or in her house.
For me, I had always been into healthy practices as far as exercise. I had been a runner for many years and was very strict when it came to my diet.
When we met it was love at first sight! We learned about each other and the different healthy habits we were into. I had always focused on exercise but had never really thought about the actual products I used on a daily basis. I started learning from my wife.
In 2012 I was jobless. My wife mentioned I should apply to a local vegan restaurant that she had worked at before. She thought I would be a shoe in, and boy was she right. I was hired on the spot.
For the next three years I worked as a vegan chef. I was exposed to a lot of amazing people that were thinking about our impact on the environment and how we can make a difference. It was empowering!
Suddenly learning about the products and the lifestyle increased tenfold. I would come home and share my ideas and experiences, and she the same. We created a think tank and became even more focused on the products we were buying. Once we had built a large volume of companies we could just name off the top of our head, we thought, we should share this information!
Why We Want to Help & Our Goals
We know the time it takes to make sure you are purchasing good quality products. It can be exhausting! There are so many companies out there that are just trying to capitalize on "Natural" or "Gluten Free". We want to help people find the companies that are actually making a difference. We want to educate you so that you can feel confident enough in the products you are buying for your family.
If you ever need a hand or have ay questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
