From Green To Clean

From Green To Clean

By Stephanie Seferian

There comes a time when we're simultaneously sick of all the greenwashing and angry at the snail's pace in which change tends to occur. Because while doing our best within our homes is indeed impactful, it does little to create large-scale change. If you're dedicated to leaving the world a better place than you found it, you're ready to become an advocate. Today's show is the second in a two part series about creating a marketplace that puts consumers — not mega corporations! — first, and I'm speaking with podcaster Jessica Brennan about her transition from quiet-but-crunchy parent to loud-and-proud advocate. Jessica was pivotal in the passing of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act (MoCRA) which is the first substantial update to cosmetic laws since 1938.  Here's a preview:  [5:00] How to know when you're ready to take your frustration and do something with it outside of your home [12:00] The surprising benefits associated with advocacy work [18:00] Want to be an advocate but don't want to picket? Here's how [24:00] Thoughts on using your voice for change even when it's scary   Resources mentioned:  Jessica on Instagram -- Join our (free!) community here.
