On my journey I have been inspired by Wendyl Nissen, a New Zealand author of The Natural Home, a book of sustainable practices in the home, and the original creator of the company The Green Goddess. Through reading her book I began my journey to using more natural products in my home, as well as buying bulk organic foods. I have been inspired by Be Natural Soap, a local company that makes their own Castile soap. I have been inspired by Pigs Tits and Parsley Sauce, a woman that promotes the use of baking soda and vinegar in the home for a cheaper and environmentally friendly way to clean your home.
I have researched a lot about the unnecessary toxic cleaning chemicals that we are buying, we are buying poison. Why are we being sold a product that has a 0800 number for emergencies?! Also they are so commercialised, we are told that we need a different product for each part of our home. This isn’t true. We are exposing our skin, our bodies, and our pets to these toxic chemicals that are causing harm over time.
