In 2010, a bad reaction to a well-known, commercial shampoo (which claimed to be "natural") contributed to Katie's decision to give up shampoo permanently. A year later, All Natural Katie was launched. One of the early articles shared information about how she improved the health of her hair and scalp by adopting a "no poo" hair cleansing routine. Since that time, she has gone on to speak about everything from fasting to preserving food to recycling. Readers are offered reviews of green products and often given a chance to win some for themselves. Many posts are prompted by "Change The World Wednesday" activities. When she accepts a challenge, she jumps right in and gives it her full attention. For example, when we tackled BPA, Katie did some research and came up with a concrete plan to phase out questionable products. That post included a great table which listed "offenders" and appropriate alternatives. The "Eating Out of the Freezer" challenge resulted in daily menu plans and an audit of Katie's pantry and freezer. All Natural Katie may have begun with an unfortunate event, but it is proof that misfortune can be the impetus of a green journey and the opportunity to improve our lives. It has become a reputable blog where readers are invited to walk a more natural, green path.
