The Savvy Path

    The Future of Savvy Looks Like This...

    Mmm…I love the smell of coconut, says Robin as she hands off the jar to Erin.

    Nine women stood around a kitchen island laughing. Sharing. Venting frustrations.

    Sounds like a gals’ night out, for sure, only this one had a special twist.

    A Velvety Soft Scrub for Sinks

    If only everything were as easy as placing a romantic classified!  

    "Just got out of long-term toxic-cleaner relationship. I am looking for a new product that doesn’t leave me with a thumping headache or sneezing fit after our encounters. It’s not too much for a girl to ask for, is it? A cleaning product that doesn’t need to be locked in cabinets or used with “adequate ventilation?” I promise I am not needy; a casual weekly rendezvous for a spin around the bathroom sink is fine by me."

    A Skeptic's Grand Experiment: DIY Cleaners

    Myth Busting: College Apartment Style 

    Savvy is touting that baking soda and vinegar are the magical products of the week. Yes, baking soda, like the stuff you put in cookie dough, and vinegar, like the stuff you drizzle on your fries.  They are raving about how baking soda and vinegar could be used to clean almost anything! I was hesitant to believe the whispers of the superpowers of such basic products, so I armed myself with a box of baking soda and a bottle of white vinegar. I was nervous to begin my mission and appropriately dubbed it “The Grand Experiment.”

    My Famously Fantastic Simple Weed Killer

    It is a Jungle Out There

    A few summers ago, when lawn services pushed warning flags of caution into suburban lawns (alerting children and animals alike to STAY OFF!) I headed out to pluck and cuss. My fingers and thumb engaged in a weed tug-of-war; with me being determined to prove which of us species was the stronger. Knowing that if I plucked only its little weed-neck, spidery roots would return with a vengeance in a matter of weeks.

    One season, I convinced myself the tiny green plants looked “quaint” growing between the bricks. I told myself I was going for the “cottage-y” look. When I returned from a vacation, my quaint brick décor was 23 inches high. Our home moved right past “cottage-y” and straight into “abandoned lot,” which I’m not sure the neighbors appreciated.

    There must be a better, and better-for-you, option than the herbicides we had sprayed over previous years. Staring at my 100-foot long brick walkway, I tapped my flip-flopped toes. How to make this…fun?

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
