RRGreenAll brands, companies and products highlighted in the Robyn Recommends program are products that Robyn and her family use regularly.

At any time, on any given day, these products can be found in her home.

Wherever possible, Robyn has invested the time visiting the headquarters, manufacturing facilities and offices of these companies to meet with the management and production teams.

Robyn’s philosophy is to “focus on progress, not perfection,” and she and her family adhere to her “80/20 Rule,” where 80% of the time, you do the best you can, the other 20% of the time allows you the grace and flexibility to live in the real world and adjust for everyday living. Robyn feels that the 80/20 approach is extremely important in order to help her readers and followers to focus on “progress not perfection,” to not make ‘the perfect’ the enemy of ‘the good,’ and to address the fact that diet is no longer one size fits all, as well as to assure against disordered eating.

Her mission is to engage her followers in the food movement in a positive and meaningful way, making the shift accessible and affordable.

She is proud to work with these sponsors.

Natural Vitality

Natural Vitality is an Austin-based international purpose-driven company committed to healthier and happier living. Acquired by Wellnext Health in 2016, Natural Vitality has developed a line of best-selling supplements based on research and formulated to produce a noticeable result. Natural Vitality believes that real, lasting health requires the creation of a sustainable environment and locally-based food system. For their dietary supplements, they seek out organic plant-based ingredients wherever possible. All the fruits and vegetables used are organically grown. The stevia and fruit flavorings are organic as well. This not only assures customers of no pesticide residues and no GMO ingredients but also provides financial support to organic farming.

Two of Natural Vitality’s premiere products are Natural Calm and Organic Life Vitamins.

Garden of Life

Every once in a while, a brand comes along that gets it right – from start to finish.  Can you imagine if we could do the same?

When the team from Garden of Life first reached out, I took a look at their product line. It covers our needs from vitamin C to sports performance. But it wasn’t until I met their team that I truly understood how much this company lives and breathes its mission. The company’s founding principal is to empower extraordinary health. They are USDA Organic certified, with a product line that covers a diverse set of needs.  From the advanced athlete to the mom of many in her daily marathon, Garden of Life products meet you where you are.  It is truly extraordinary to know a company that has such an incredible product line, and it is impossible to showcase a handful of products. They cover you at home and on the go.

On top of that, they are B-Corp certified. Certified B Corporations meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance and legally expand their corporate responsibilities to include consideration of stakeholder interests. There are more than 1,300 Certified B Corporations from over 120 industries and nearly 50 countries with 1 unifying goal—to redefine success in business. B Corporations are leaders of the global movement of People Using Business as a Force for Good.

I love that about them and know you will, too. You can learn more about Garden of Life here  https://www.gardenoflife.com/content/about/why-gol

Beautycounter

The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.  The mission of Beautycounter is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. Beautycounter was founded by a dear friend in this fight for the health of our families.  She is also a mother.  You can learn more about their “Never List,” how to makeover your makeup (I am so learning this!) and more here.

Naturepedic

Few companies have impressed me as much as Naturepedic.  Started by a grandfather in search of a safe crib mattress for his first grandchild, their attention to the details of how we sleep, the mattresses we choose and the pillows we place our heads on are unprecedented. We spend 30% of our life in bed!  What we choose to roll around in and on matters. Naturepedic’s laser like focus on the safety and wellbeing of their customers is unparalleled.  Ingredients are sourced from organic cotton farmers in Texas, organic wool farmers in New Zealand, and every measure is taken to ensure safety and non-toxicity in their materials.

 

There are two products that I just love, one is the EOS Classic and the other (the most important one to me) is their Ultra-breathable 2- Stage Organic Crib Mattress.  I wish I had known what I know now when our four kids were babies.  Every single baby should be on one a Naturepedic mattress in my opinion.  It is the best start.
