Marina and Natalie deMarco give an energetic and insightful presentation on all things foul in cosmetics.
Last night I was proud and humbled to be voted onto the board of directors for the Muskoka YWCA.
I've been a member for several years, but am excited to get more involved in this organization which provides so many opportunities for personal growth in our community.
A perfect example of the empowering types of conversations the YWCA keeps the community engaged in was the presentation last night by a group of Nipissing students who run Love The Label.
To inform people about all the chemicals that are in cosmetics and personal care products so we can make an informed choice about the gunk we put on our skin.

The young women were passionate about their message, and their energy was contagious. At one point they asked for a group hug.
Who doesn't love group hugs?
