When I started this podcast I made a wish list of guests, and today I couldn’t be more excited to bring a wish to life and have Lindsay Dahl on the show.
You may know Lindsay from her role at Beautycounter as the SVP of Social Mission. In this very big role, she oversees safety, sustainability, quality, advocacy and giving. Lindsay has a long and impressive history working as a consumer safety advocate that includes the passage of more than a dozen health protective laws at the state and federal levels and the nation's first ban on BPA from baby bottles. Lindsay’s work as an advocate and educator reaches far beyond her day job. Through her website Lindsaydahl.com and her Instagram account, Lindsay shares science-based consumer safety guides, safer beauty products and how to find safer products for your home. Lindsay is one of my go-to-resources for all things health and safety, and I am beyond thrilled to have her as a guest.
Lindsay Dahl is Beautycounter’s SVP of Social Mission, where she leads the safety, sustainability, quality, advocacy and giving teams. A nationally recognized leader, Lindsay has been working for over 15 years to remove toxic chemicals from the products we use every day. Working at the intersection of activism, product safety, and sustainability, Lindsay takes a comprehensive approach to integrating social impact into everything we do at Beautycounter.
Prior to joining the Beautycounter team, Lindsay spearheaded the passage of more than a dozen health protective laws at the state and federal levels, including the nation’s first ban on the toxic chemical BPA from baby bottles and other landmark laws on chemicals like flame retardants, mercury, and phthalates. In addition, Lindsay created a nationally acclaimed program—Mind the Store—to encourage top retailers to remove toxic chemicals from products. This initiative led to comprehensive health protective policies from Fortune 500 companies such as Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, The Home Depot and Best Buy.
While working in DC, Lindsay was the Deputy Director of Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, the country’s largest coalition working to update federal laws on toxic chemicals. Lindsay was also the lead strategist for a grassroots movement that ultimately led to the overhaul of toxic chemical regulations, the first since 1976.
