Welcome to episode 002 of the Yasmin Essa podcast! On today's show, I am joined by Sarah UmmYusuf, Green Living Mentor for a lovely conversation on green living, Islam, family, and more.
Sarah's Bio (in her own words):
I’m a former school teacher, turned stay at home mom of three kiddos, age 6 and under. My husband and I were born and raised in the US, but moved to Canada 10 years ago and now live in Toronto. I’ve also been blogging for 6 years about natural and non-toxic living, and consulting with families to help them take small steps to creating a non-toxic home. Besides geeking out while searching for safer alternatives to the products we use in our home, I love dabbling in photography, reading, and drinking lots and lots of coffee. ;-)
