Climate change is on all of our minds and it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed, depressed and helpless about the state of the planet…but you don’t have to feel that way anymore!

I’m super pumped to talk and introduce my guests and co-founders of The Cool Down ( Anna Robertson and Nina Tooly. These moms have gone from sharing green product recommendations with each other to building The Cool Down, a climate content and commerce startup that's working to take the overwhelm out of climate topics and promote accessible sustainability.

When we become parents, we look at the world differently and we want to make sure we preserve it for our children, their children and all future generations. I’ve been overwhelmed with what I can do in my own life to create positive change and make sustainable choices so having a tool in my back pocket like The Cool Down is such a game changer.

What I love about Amy and Nina’s work and message is that it’s based in positivity, and empowerment. They are sharing easy sustainable swaps for the products you are already using AND most importantly, they are vetting them and they aren’t more expensive than what you’re already paying! BONUS!!

They also share GOOD NEWS stories about climate every single week and have just launched a new Instagram account for those of us who love green products! Follow them on Instagram @greenproductguide

To make things even easier for parents, Anna and Nina are giving us a guide, “How Parents Can Lead the Way in Shaping a Cooler, Cleaner Future,” you can download it from the Parent Toolbox.

Here are some of the suggestions mentioned in the episode:
