Welcome to my FAQ page! I decided to make a page completely dedicated to all of the questions I am frequently asked during Q&A sessions, emails, etc. This page is meant to serve as a permanent source of reference for your sustainability-related questions. Seeing as there are so many questions, this page will be updated as frequently as possible. Have more questions that I haven't addressed yet? Feel free to contact me by clicking here and hit drop those questions!

Do you have any advice for kids? Children? Babies?
I personally do not like to speak on topics I do not have experience in. I think there are plenty of others who do have experience that you can look to for advice rather than my second hand attempt. Some day when I have children of my own I will be able to give this advice!
What sustainable, aluminum-free deodorant do you recommend?
While there are so many options to choose from, Native has consistently performed well for me! I also love that they now offer plastic-free packaging! While all of their scents are amazing, my favorite happens to be Charcoal. Looking to buy their product online? Use my code "SHELBI25" for 25% off your order.
