ShiftCon Swag Bag Giveaway!

As many of you know I have been on a journey over the past two years to make healthier choices both in the food we eat and the products we use. One such conference that has changed my life in this respect is ShiftCon. It’s an eco-concious green living conference with sessions focused on social media, activism, and education on non-toxic living.

My three favorite sessions were:

Behind the Curtain:What it Takes to Create Healthy, Safe & Non-Toxic Products

Beauty & the Beast – Navigating the World of Green Beauty

Endocrine Disruptors & Low Dose Effects – Should we be Concerned About the “Chemical Stew”

All of these sessions were SO informative and fascinating. My brain literally hit a wall with how much education I recieved. I will be writing in more depth about these sessions and will turn them into links to those blog posts once completed.

In the meantime I thought you all would appreciate a giveaway. Becasue OH MY GOSH THE SWAG! It was just…well…beyond amazing. Their were over 50 brands that made ShiftCon possible and all of them were vetted through an intense process to ensure they meet strict standards. Here’s a list of what is required so you KNOW these brands are safe for you and your family.
