Inspired to Live Toxin Free – How a Company was Born 

For as long as I can remember, my parents have always gone above and beyond to make sure me and my five younger siblings grew up in a safe, family environment.  My mom had her typical antics like “don’t chew while you’re laying down,” and “don’t forget to wear your knee pads, wrist guards, fluorescent safety vest and oh, have fun bike riding!”  In addition to these parental caveats, my parent’s also tried their best to keep our fridge and pantry stocked with healthy and organic foods.   However, one thing they didn’t know about was how toxins could be affecting the health and safety of our home.  But the minute my mom’s friend informed her about BPA in water bottles, things started to look a little different at home…
  Our kitchen transformation started with getting rid of our plastic water bottles (imagine how many we went through as a family of 8!) and plastic drinking cups.  Next thing I knew, I was coming home from college to a kitchen stocked with glass and stainless steel cups, bottles, water pitchers, food storage containers, cookware, bakeware, and more!  I could go on and on about the many changes that took place in our kitchen! 
  As we continued to make more non-toxic replacements in our home, we realized it wasn’t always easy to find good information or safer products all in one place.  Knowing there must be others out there in the same situation, we decided to start our company!  In September 2011, we launched Wild Mint to give families a place to go for non-toxic items they could trust.  As a company, we have also been dedicated to educating and informing people on healthy lifestyle changes.  Our goal is to spread the conscious movemint and help others continually avoid toxins and live safer lives!
