Praise for Gimme the Good Stuff
As a first time mom, I wanted to provide the safest environment for Julian. Maia guided me through every decision with patience and humor, and made the process of creating a nontoxic home simple and stress-free. Maia is a wealth of knowledge, was always accessible to answer my questions, and searched high and low to find the perfect products for Julian’s nursery. Everyone has an opinion about what you “need” for a new baby, and Maia gave me invaluable peace of mind when making my selections. I would recommend Maia’s services to anyone looking to demystify the process of registering for a baby shower or designing a beautiful nursery without exposing your baby to scary chemicals.
“Today I went online to see why Biokleen laudry detergent changed its formula; all sorts of stuff is listed on the label now that wasn’t there before. Your website helped to clarify what all those things are, along with other “mystery ingredients” in the shampoos I have been using. It also helped to de-mystify the difference between SLS/SLES at last. I really appreciate having this information all in one place!”
“I am so incredibly inspired by you and your website and now that I have begun the undertaking of going greener, I feel so excited–like it’s very possible, even on a limited budget. I appreciate your website, your honesty, your understanding of the limitations of real life ,and your support. You’re inspiring others to make great changes and I think it’s wonderful. I hope I can do the same for those around me!”
“I came across your website today after seeing a link from Baby Center’s Organic Mamas group. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the incredible amount of helpful information. Especially for new moms like me, who previously never thought twice about what products I used on myself. I am just getting started with educating myself, as all this is so new to me. But having a website like yours is invaluable in getting informed, quickly and efficiently.”
“I just discovered your site through your blog on The Huffington Post. I love that you’ve made finding and absorbing complex information so easy! The glossary is simple and fantastic. Thank you for doing this!”
“Thanks so much for such an amazing site and for all of the wonderful products you sell! I’m pregnant and you’ve given me such peace of mind. Thank you again.”
“My sister and I were talking about toxic products today so I sent her to Gimme the Good Stuff. She called me back 3 hours later and said she sat down and had read the ENTIRE site front to back and her husband is going to think she’s crazy because she’s throwing out everything in her bathroom cabinets. Anyway, just wanted to tell you that you have another fan.”
“I received my package of products today and am so excited! I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your site. I work part time at Williams-Sonoma and I give every one who buys a blender from me your website so they can look up your mom’s chocolate hemp smoothie recipe! Keep up the great work!”
“I, like you, am an avid researcher with the caveat of mommy brain that makes me forget and have to research again most of the things I buy just before buying them. This website provides me the same peace of mind in a fraction of the time! Thank you so much!”
“I stumbled on your website a few weeks ago while online researching California Baby. I have taken your advice and switched out all of my cleaning supplies with safer products and used the ones you recommend.”
