We believe that educating people to consume mindfully, at the same time as motivating brands to manufacture responsibly, will affect change on a large scale.
Founded in 2019, the Awards are the brainchild of blogger, mother and practising Optometrist Emily Fletcher, who founded the Awards after identifying the need to celebrate safe and socially responsible products.
Half a decade on, and the Clean + Conscious Awards are now running in their fifth year. So much has changed in five years, but most importantly, the clean and conscious movement, once so niche, has taken seed and flourished.
It’s inspiring to see so many brands and small businesses set the gold standard when it comes to being clean and conscious – encouraging bigger brands to take note and follow suit.
Consumers are becoming increasingly more conscious – scrutinising the backs of labels, calling out greenwashing, and questioning the what, where and how of the products they buy.
It’s an exciting time to be alive!
We are 100% independent and pride ourselves on a fair and transparent judging process.
Meet The Team
Founder & Head of Research & Education
Emily is the founder of the Clean + Conscious Awards. A practising Optometrist of 14 years and mother of two, Emily has postgraduate qualifications in Pharmacology and has studied Advanced Chemistry at university.
Emily began to document her journey of discovering truly healthy, non-toxic products for her home and family over seven years ago. Since then, her ability to read scientific research papers, explain her findings clearly, and provide an independent voice without a brand association has made her a well-respected authority in the clean and conscious world.
Today Emily is more passionate than ever about educating consumers of the power they have to change the world, through supporting brands who prioritise the planet and its people.
