Upcoming Pregnancy and Motherhood Summit – it starts next week!
A happier, healthier, stronger mum is the best gift we can give our children. Most health professionals focus on the baby’s health, while the mum’s try to rebuild after baby and I’m super excited to be a speaker on this summit that’s all about the mother’s health as we bring children into the world – rebuilding strength and resilience in our bodies and minds during one of the most challenging and transformative times we ever experience. This free summit aims to give mums all the advice and education they need about nutrition, fitness, gut health, pelvic health, hormones and mental health — all in ONE place!
The Pregnancy & Motherhood Summit is online and free from September 10-16, 2018! Join for free HERE.
The show supporter for this week:
Weleda have a reputation for being highly ethical, organic and a natural brand with deep roots – they go back more than 90 years. The founder Rudolf Steiner was the forefather of biodynamic farming and viewed the human body, mind and spirit holistically. They’ve now just become the first European beauty brand and one of only two companies globally to gain the UEBT (Union for Ethical Biotrade)* certification for Sourcing with Respect. By meeting the UEBT’s internationally recognised standard, a company assures customers that, when sourcing raw materials, biodiversity is conserved and sourced sustainably, and that all partners along the supply chain are treated equitably and paid fairly. In addition they will be launching their Bee B&B Hotel project for schools again in October, which is a great initiative to increase the awareness for biodiversity and the importance of our pollinators. The project aims to teach primary school children about biodiversity and the importance of pollinators, especially native solitary bees, by building their very own Bee B&B Hotel.

And onto this week’s bonus show!
I’ve popped a bonus show on today because we’ve found this wonderful online publication that’s branching out into ethical city guides too, called Pebble. Georgina Wilson-Powell is the founder and it was wonderful to discuss how she came to realise that Pebble needed to happen, and what they’re doing to be the change as a publication and share inspiring resources, ethical brands and more, to connect the low tox peeps out there in the world to the kind of investments they want to make for a better world – through something as simple as our wardrobe and more! We talk B Corps, Zero Waste, Permaculture, ethical city guides and more and I hope you take time to connect to Pebble if it’s something up your alley.
Here are the questions I asked Georgina:
Were you always a sustainable living love child or were there aha’s along the way that landed you here?
You’ve been a journalist for many years, covering all sorts of places around the world. How do you see that time / some examples over that time, shaping your desire to develop a stronger case for sustainable living? (anything that shocked or confronted over the years… “this has to change” kind of feelings)
What gave you the courage to leap from working for others to starting Pebble?
I see Pebble is en route to becoming the first digital mag in the UK to become a BCorp – for those who don’t know what being a BCorp is, share a little about it and why you felt it was important to make that commitment ?
Let’s talk some of the things you cover in the mag for people?
Zero waste: Trendy sure, but not always easy for urban dwellers: How have you gone about approaching zero waste principals in your own life?
Fashion… similar situation, right? What are some of the things you’ve changed around slowing your fashion down and trading to transparency? Anything you haven’t quite nailed yet that you’re working on when it comes to fashion?
Can you share a story or two about eco tourism / green travel that have stood out… places you’ve covered and why they went to the top of your list?
Permaculture: Couple of q’s here speaking to your passion for it / what permaculture principles your favourites and non negotiables are in your own life…
Pebble wrap up questions: What’s next? What are your big scary goals as a digital mag?
If someone was feeling overwhelmed by everything they felt they had to change after reading one of your issues… where would you tell them to start?
How do we get our friends to care?
