If you’re a “crunchy mama” or a wellness blogger, this is one of the best green living wellness conferences I’ve attended. Whether you’re looking to connect with wellness brands or listen to world-class wellness speakers, it’s for you! I went last year and am counting down the days for Shiftcon 2019.
Who it’s for –
As I mentioned above, whether you’re a blogger or a mama, this is for you. You don’t have to be a wellness blogger, green living expert or recipe developer to attend. If you have an interest in:
- green living
- non-toxic lifestyle
- healthy food
- natural beauty
- organic food
- taking care of our earth
- hanging out with like-minded people
My number one tip is that you just COME. Do not be intimidated and don’t let the fact that you don’t know anyone there keep you from coming. Everyone is friendly and I made some of my (now) best friends at this conference. We came to one of the best green living wellness conferences to to support, love and encourage each other on this journey.
What is Shiftcon –
Shiftcon was created by Leah Segedie the founder of Mamavation. She wanted to create a meeting ground for wellness influencers and brands to meet together; in person! “ShiftCon is an eco-wellness influencer conference focusing on food, wellness, health, sustainability and platform growth.” I stole their words because I couldn’t say it better myself.
At the conference you will hear things like light green and dark green. This is “rating” where you are on the greenie scale? You see, I’m deep in the dark dark green and I’m proud. What I love the most is that I had lunch with light greens and just turned greens and we had the best conversations. There’s something powerful about coming together with others who care about our planet and their health.
Topics & brands –
This year, Alysia Reiner from Orange is the New Black will be speaking. Who knew she was such a greenie?! I can’t wait to hear who else will be speaking. I will update this post as they roll out the speakers. They’ve had speakers like Robyn O’Brien, Danni Washington from Nature Knows Best, Kelly Olexa from Fitfluential, Pete Myers and Kiran Krishnan, world renowned microbiologist <– my favorite!
Here are some of the topics we covered:
- influencer platform growth and marketing
- gut health and the effect of probiotics
- micro-plastics and sustainable fashion
- safer skin care
- labeling laws and environmental justice
- & the list goes on, it was incredible
The food, oh my gosh –
If you like the idea of not having to meal prep for a few days, this is reason enough for you to join in on the fun… right? Doesn’t sound good enough? Well, what if I told you the meals are 100% GMO-free and gluten-free. I am not kidding and you better be signing up right now. We are going to have some dang good conversations over our gluten-free avocado toast!
Here is my post from last year with some more examples but my favorite was the pasture-raised meat at each meal + the butternut squash pie.. I took a whole one home so, there’s that. Glad to get that off my chest 😉
The menu is well though out, planned out in advance and curated by extremely talented and aware chefs. It is 100% gluten-free and there are vegan, paleo, keto and vegetarians options. All dairy was organic, the meat was pasture-raised and grass-fed and the produce was organic and locally sourced. No omega-6 rancid oils (corn, canola, soy) and no artificial ingredients.
My experience in 2018 –
One of the best green living wellness conferences
Lindsay Dahl from Beautycounter spoke and got me on the I LOVE BEAUTY COUNTER kick because… how could I now after hearing the heart of this business? They are on a roll in capitol hill and are making strides in the world or sustainable and non-toxic beauty products.
Are you afraid of coming because you don’t know anyone? You can and will make new friends, with similar values to you!
Here are some of the collaborations I have done since Shiftcon last year with the other attendees I met in that short weekend.
Healthy travel tips + an interview with The Healthy Voyager herself
Interview + affordable organic clothing with Marci Zaroff on eco-fashion
