Welcome to episode 24 of the Nurtured by Nature podcast. Today I’m delighted to be joined in conversation by the amazing Jessica Brennan of Clean Product Junkie and the Clean Living Made Easy Podcast. 

In this informative and inspiring conversation Jessica shares some simple steps to help us make better choices for our own health and that of the planet when we buy beauty and household products. 

She shares with me her truly amazing journey from being a concerned mum making choices to help her young children overcome chronic disease, to recently becoming part of a panel advising legislators in America creating the new guidelines to improve product safety. 

She’s incredibly passionate about how powerful consumers actually are and how it is our duty and responsibility to vote with our dollars too elicit the changes we want to see. Reminding us that we truly are more powerful than we at first imagine.

With a staggering 80,000 chemicals having been introduced to the marketplace since World War II and the fairly unregulated manufacturing and labelling of both home products and those for beauty and skincare, plus numerous studies showing that many ingredients can be detrimental to our health and cause damage to our environment, we both believe that empowering consumers with the education they need to allow them to make safer, healthier choices is imperative. 

Jessica has dedicated the past decade of her life to making this as easy as possible, so that it becomes a simple process for us all to undertake and she guides us through how you can make these changes in your own home.
