The inspiration behind New Habitz started in the heart of our founder as a slow burn in the heart of a child. She was playing pretend with a friend – the classic, “what do you want to be when you grow up?”
And Romelia said, “an environmental foundation.” Even as a kid she wanted to help protect animals and the environment.
The Self-Fulfilling Prophecy
What Romélia didn’t know then was how her first little interest in creating an environmental foundation was setting herself up for a lifelong interest in nutritional health, organic food, non-toxic skin care, and sustainable living.
It turns out that she has created a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Because as time passed, the urge to find safe, sustainable products grew stronger. Romélia started researching all of the ingredients and reading every label before purchasing. She found herself enjoying a healthy lifestyle. But she also found herself getting more and more frustrated.
She recognized that we have access to basically everything 24/7, and she asked herself, “how come it is such a struggle to find truly sustainable products? This should be the other way around. Sustainable shopping should be effortless. We shouldn’t have to worry about buying a toxic and harmful or non-ethical product.”
And then the world was changed when a deadly virus rampaged through our global community. As the fog cleared, the world started to see through the heartbreak, the difficult decisions – the anger and fear and frustration – and we realized that this is our chance.
If we want to make a sustainable change for ourselves and the environment, we need to take matters into our own hands.
And that’s where the childhood dream met the sustainable products research and the dedication to healthy living. She realized – it’s time for our community to grow some New Habitz.
