Why We Like It
With 90,000 manmade chemicals in the world and 1,000 new chemicals introduced each year, parents often don’t have the off-hand knowledge or the time to research the safest products on the market. That’s where Chris and Kristen Conn, the founders of MightyNest.com, come in.
After their first child was born, the Conn’s became more aware of all of the potentially harmful, and often avoidable, chemicals in household products, and wanted to be better informed about the options available. Since then, Chris and Kristen have developed an expertise in safe, healthy products, and have made it their mission to educate and help others find non-toxic alternatives. After countless hours of research, interviews with manufacturers, product testing and more, they’re sharing their findings at MightyNest.com to ease the frustration for other families who are trying to find high-quality, healthy products.
