Support On Your Toxin-Free Journey

💪🏼 You’re loving being an empowered consumer
💪🏼 You’re committed to making changes for your family
💪🏼 You’re feeling so confident in your toxin free choices
💪🏼 You can now spot greenwashing from a mile away
💪🏼 Your personal care product are all cleaned up
💪🏼 You’re passionate and enthusiastic about sharing your newfound toxin free choices with friends and family…

…and then…

  •  They’re not excited with you
  • Maybe they’re totally uninterested
  • Or worst of all… maybe they try to discredit you. ((Sigh))

So now what do you do? Well friend to friend here, my suggestions are to…

1️⃣ Give grace…
Living a toxin free lifestyle is a brand new concept to most people, and it’s not always that they aren’t interested… it’s simply that they don’t understand the importance yet. Many believe that how its always been is the way it should always be… and you and I know that’s untrue.

2️⃣ Educate in little pieces…
You’ve most likely been learning about this for a while and you have a lot to share… but information overload can be a huge turn off and make it seem “too hard” on the receiving end. Sharing facts about the number of ingredients being used in personal care products can be enlightening (ps – it’s over 80,000 and less than 10% have ever been 

tested for safety)… or letting them know that it’s been over 80 years since laws have been updated regarding cosmetic ingredient safety. Showing them the 1 minute clip I shared on my public profile of the chairwoman questioning the FDA representative about the carcinogen, formaldehyde, in baby products.

3️⃣ Remain genuinely judgement free…
Often times I have found that others assume that with your new lifestyle modifications.. comes judgement of others and the choices they make for their families. WE know that’s not true, but kindly reminding them that you only share because you care and that you love and respect them no matter what is always a good idea!
4️⃣ Provide resources to help them…
Have you found LWM to be helpful? Invite them in! Love the EWG? Share it! Enjoyed using the Think Dirty App as you began understanding labels? Tell them about it! Loading up their toxin free tool belt can be very valuable!
5️⃣ Be calmly confident…
This is YOUR decision for you and your family. Nobody else’s. There’s no reason to be defensive, argue, or have hurt feelings if someone chooses to disagree with you. There are absolutely NO negative side effects to detoxing your environment… none… so don’t let someone else’s grumpiness impact the confidence you have for your journey.

Everyone is in their own walk, my friends, and it’s totally normal to have people in your circle that either disagree or simply don’t care. My hope for you is that you continue to grow in confidence to help share this mission with heart-forward enthusiasm – without any concern for other people’s opinions. ❤️
