  • Green Clean
    10:30 am-12:00 pm

    Join Sarah Ringler and Amy Carter for a new take on green. Do you really know what's in your day-to-day beauty and cleaning products? There hasn’t been a major federal law passed in the personal care industry since 1938! Many ingredients in our every day products have been directly linked to health issues. Switching to safer doesn’t need to seem insurmountable, but sometimes it feels as though we need a degree in chemistry to really understand where to begin. During this workshop you will learn some of the top ingredients and contaminants to avoid, some clean and sustainable brands who are making an impact in this industry, as well as some simple DIY recipes for everyday products! Small changes can make a lasting impact on our health and wellbeing and the world. Can’t wait to share with you!
