Hi, I'm Martha Van Inwegen, founder of Life ElementsÂ®, wife to Curt and mother to Bettina, Michael and Cyprus.
I started Life Elements in 2005 as a lifestyle company focusing on natural, aromatherapy based personal care products for the entire family. Our first collection, C&M CouplesÂ® (www.cmcouples.com) was created to bring balance to a couple's relationship through products that enhance their romance and passion. Our second collection, Action WipesÂ® (www.actionwipes.com) was created for active family members that love the outdoors, fitness, travel and more. Action Wipes are an all natural wet wipe for when you can't shower.
While I wouldn't call myself an "environmentalist" or "tree hugger", I am concerned with how we are trashing our environment, wasting precious resources and the disbelief of global warming. To that end, I want to make a difference â€“ however small it may be. With that mission, we support and have joined organizations with the same goal. Life Elements is a member of 1% For The Planet, Green America, Carbonfund.org and Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. I am committed to implementing responsible environmental practices and awareness in both my company and my home.
I don't consider myself an advocate either, but I care about certain causes - like cancer, aids, alsheimers, global warming and about those trying to make a difference in these areas. So, I support and sponsor several non-profit organizations, teams and individuals that are doing incredible things - such as Team Winter (www.teamwinter.org), Eric Larsen (www.savethepoles.com), Opportunity Green (www.opportunitygreen.com)and many more.
Being a wife, mother and entrepreneur is not easy, it has its challenges, but I've learned how to remain patient, work through the challenge and keep moving forward. I strive to give back by helping and inspiring other moms and entrepreneurs whenever possible. And, I love a good competition. So please, vote for me!
