Meet Audra Conklin, founder and owner of Audra’s line of green cleaning products. Audra has combined a communications degree with a license in holistic spa therapies to become a knowledgeable and passionate speaker in the “anti-chemical” movement. After a friend asked her if cleaning chemicals were possibly causing headaches, breathing problems and eye irritations after a day of cleaning, a seed was planted and the two women began creating non-toxic cleaners and other environmentally safe household products. Audra has worked for natural skin care companies such as AVEDA and Nature’s Gate and has enjoyed the opportunity educating hundreds of people in spas and venues like Whole Foods Markets around the country. It was a simple transition to teach about the impact of chemicals in our environment and the importance of the mission on which Modern Mermaids was built. Many people have claimed that the information Audra teaches has helped them to make safer, healthier choices for their homes and families as Audra offers simple alternatives to harmful products. Whether an avid environmentalist or just beginning to understand the importance of “going green”, a seminar with Audra offers something for everyone.
