Krissy Ballinger has always been passionate about health, the human body and the planet. When she learned about the crazy number of ingredients in her cleaning and body care products, she decided to use this ‘universal nudge’ to do something about it. Valuing simplicity over convenience, she created her own products using natural and simple ingredients. She started on this journey with the intention of changing her family’s lives for the better, but continues on it because she needs as many people as possible to know that there is another way. Her DIY recipes can now be found online, and she has published several books, helping people to realise that avoiding store-bought, potentially harmful products not only benefits your own body, but also those around you, and of course, the planet.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which we record our podcast - the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people of the Kulin nation. We recognise Aboriginal people’s enduring connection to land, water and culture, and pay our deep respects to elders past and present - extending that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander cultures.
