A Greener Spring: Cleaner Health & Beauty Made Simple

LAUNCHING APRIL 21, 2017

All the green is a visual cue for a change in momentum and the possibility of growth. It’s no wonder that culturally green is the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, and it is associated with growth, freshness, safety, fertility, and the environment.

Ok, is it just us, or do those all sound related to sustainable, healthy, ethical (SHE) living?! No wonder we are energized by spring over here. We’re ready to throw open the windows, and engage in the centuries old ritual of “spring cleaning.” Around the globe cultures use spring as a marker to clean out the old and press into the new!

So what if this year instead of just cleaning our houses, we took a deeper look at our health and what we’re bringing into our homes as well?  

This handbook, which we are so excited to share, is full of simple ways to clean out chemicals and bring new, healthy products into your lives.
