We’ve talked a lot about skincare on the podcast, but we haven’t talked about cleaning, yet. All that changes today!

I can’t think of a better person to have on the podcast to talk about non-toxic cleaning and navigating the cleaning aisle than the co-founder of Branch Basics, Allison. What I love about Branch Basics is their commitment to education that goes beyond selling a cleaning product.

  • What a great episode! I sometimes think I am crazy for making all these changes, that no one else seems to think matter, so to hear the type of healing that can happen making these changes really reinforced in me that I am doing a good job and I am not crazy! : )

    And it is so nice to hear about a company striving so hard to do the right thing, they close for 18 months in order to do it. I keep hearing of green companies getting bought out by larger companies and they end up changing formulas so they are less green, and it is very upsetting and frustrating. So nice to hear a company that would never happen with.

    Thank you for this interview!
