Leanne said:

“Open your eyes a little bit to where your produce is coming from. Is it organic? Is it from a spray-free farm? What kind of journey has it had to get to you? Has it been around the world? And once to start paying attention to this stuff, you become really tuned into it.”

“Educate yourself a little bit on what Roundup is and how that might affect you… See if you can start making some changes. It matters to health… it matters, obviously, that you don’t come into contact with carcinogenic products.”
