The Future is Green
Today we share about our vision as an organization and what our next steps are to continue to serve our mission for our community. The Love the Green Life Wellness Center, Cafe & Vintage Shop will be the change we want to see in the world. All of us are in dire need of services that make it easier to choose the green solution. Our organization; Love the Green Life, offers a beacon of hope with the most effective courses, guides, media, and events to carry us into a healthy future. Love the Green Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational service organization that specializes in cruelty-free, chemical-free and compassionate living. We encourage a more eco-friendly lifestyle through coaching, a vintage shop, our podcast, a weekly radio program and an annual conference. We dream of offering the eco-conscious market a permanent gathering space with a zero-waste vegan cafe, wellness events, and our vintage shop. It is our ultimate goal to be a visible environment of active change in Northeast Ohio. We dream of a space that honors our local history, highlights vegan cuisine, and attracts visitors from all walks of their green journey. We often greet our listeners as our “Green Team”. Let’s face it, we all want to be a part of a supportive team. The Love the Green Life Wellness Center, Cafe and Vintage Shop will be our headquarters. We plan to become a demonstration model in many ways. For example: we plan to hold a catering license so that we can safely offer local vegan grab & go meals, bakery items and farm-to-table fast food. We have vendors in line. Local food artisans, chefs and baristas, all who have chosen to join our mission. The best part of being on the Green Team is that we accept everyone on their journey to a better planet.

Heather DiFranco: label expert, educator and board treasurer
We talk to our newest team member, Heather today! Heather is our new treasurer for Love the Green Life, the non profit we run! Heather has so much knowledge, joy and excitement to share with us. If you are someone who needs help reading a label, Heather is an expert at this. She is our unofficial label-ologist. She is going to drop some of the top ingredients for you to watch out for as you are looking for better products for yourself or family and friends. She is an educator and holds a teaching license and she is an avid researcher of the chemical compounds and ingredient names that you see on the products you buy and use. She is going to help us decipher that language and tell us about some ingredients to look out for and why. You are going to love hearing from Heather and we are so blessed to have her as part of our team now!  Heather is a wife and mother to a couple of energetic boys who constantly keep her on her toes. She became interested in living a “greener” life her senior year of high school when she was educated on human trafficking and its role in the production of products. She began casually looking for more sustainable products and ethically sourced ingredients until 2017 when she was pregnant with her first son. She then began looking for alternatives to conventional medicine and began swapping all their personal care and cleaning products out for toxin free options. She now has her own Facebook group and Instagram  where she is having a blast using her creativity and research skills to educate others on risks of conventional ingredients and what better options are out there. You can find her on instagram @heritage.homemakers and on facebook @facebook.com/groups/heritagehomemakers --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. this podcast:
