The Crunchy Mamas Collective—a group of local women dedicated to empowering families with safe, all-natural alternatives to common chemical-laden commercial products—is hosting an open house and night of all-natural pampering and stress relief for women from 6 to 9 p.m. on November 21, at the Hudson Valley Healing Center, in Poughkeepsie.
“We’re holding this event just in time for the hectic holiday season,” says Alina Rinato, a member of the Crunchy Mamas Collective. “In addition to learning more about nontoxic, plant-based products for the home, attendees can also look forward to enjoying a chair massage, mini makeovers with nontoxic makeup, making custom nontoxic perfumes, sampling delicious refreshments, exclusive product discounts and special giveaways—all of which are included in the affordable ticket price.”
The collective was launched in response to the members’ realization that women are exposed to a considerably higher number of dangerous chemicals, often in the home, than men are, Rinato says.
“The toxins in these commercial products compromise health and wellness on so many levels, and so we are working to bring attention to chemical exposure, how it relates to cancer risk, and how to safely and affordably choose products that are safe for families and the environment,” she says.
