15: Overcoming adversity with Gwen Gardner, Game Changer – Environment

Gwen Gardner

Gwen Gardner – Founder of Simply Chickie Clothing.

Gwen is no stranger to adversity. Over 10 years ago (within the same week!) at 40 years old – she was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, broke up with her boyfriend, and found out she was pregnant.

Why did you choose to start this clothing line:

Being diagnosed with stage 2 cancer, I started looking at everything I ate, every cleaning product I was using, and everything that I was wearing.  I really started researching everything that I was exposed to.

 

What is wrong with “natural” cotton?

Cotton is one of the most chemically intensive crops in the world.  According the U.S. Department of Agriculture 84 million pounds of pesticides were applied to U.S. cotton crops.  This cotton is labeled “natural.”  Organic cotton is grown without these chemicals.

 

What advice do you have for someone who wants to be a Game Changer?

Be social.  Get out and meet people, find and tribe, and people who share your vision.

 

What do you believe to be true?

Good habits.  Exercise, juicing, and eating well.  These things will give you more energy and staying power to go the distance.
