Interview with Manda Aufochs Gillespie, aka The Green Mama

Manda is so knowledgeable on the topic of toxins and our health that the important information just rolls off her tongue, all while she is smiling and enjoying that she gets to share this important wisdom. This is part 1 of many more to come as it is such a big topic that one interview just won’t cut it. There are so many great take aways during this podcast that you are going to want to have a pen and paper ready. This is realistically the easiest way to take steps toward improving your fertility and ensuring your future children do not begin life in a toxic environment.  ~ Spence



Professional Profile
Manda Aufochs Gillespie is the author of the Green Mama series of books (Green Mama: Giving your child a healthy start and greener future and Green Mama-to-Be: Creating a Healthy, Happy, and Toxin-Free Pregnancy) and publisher of the award-winning website
She’s been writing, consulting, and giving advice (mostly solicited) on green living and design for a million years. Before handing out that (mostly solicited) advice she does a lot of research and tries things out on her own children and her husband. (They are all still living and they all still have their limbs.) Sometimes her husband rolls his eyes, but as the media says she is “the green guru” so he has to listen. Despite what her children may say, Manda is a lot of fun and mostly right. Manda has helped green one of America’s first environmentally conscious childcare facilities, managed one of the world’s only urban ecovillages, and has taught hundreds of parents and small business about how to go green (without going broke). She has appeared as the green living expert on the TV shows The Lazy Environmentalist (HBO) and Save My Planet (ABC’s Living Well Network) and the documentary The Beginning of Life. She is a feature write for EcoParent Magazine and has recently started working on radio for CKTZ. She can be found on social media as The Green Mama, but prefers to be found wading into the Pacific Ocean with her children.
