Curiosity: Shaping the world from our shopping baskets

Biography

With a community size surpassing 60,000, Alexx has spent the last five years committed to educating, enlightening and empowering people around real food and shifting to non-toxics across Australia and online. Alexx knows people and the challenges we face as individuals and populations in making the changes we very much need to make to get us healthier – both us and the planet.

She believes that the key to our success in making and sticking to change is developing curiosity and conscious consumer skills.

What’s actually in everything we buy so readily these days? It doesn’t take long to realise that most of us have not given an awful lot of thought to what’s in the ‘stuff’ we put on and in us, past ‘liking it’ or ‘not liking it’. Where did our critical thinking go and why should we care?

From bizarre product claims and laboratory cocktail ingredient lists to scary statistics, it can all seem a little too grim and ‘deep dark hole’ to try and figure it all out. What can we really affect in the grand scheme of things, anyway?

Alexx suggests that if we awaken our curiosity for what’s in stuff in the right way, the sky’s the limit.

Today will no doubt light a fire for us all to do a little better than yesterday and, believe it or not, actually make us want to make the change.
