How did Beck Lacouture go from a cancer diagnosis to starting a green chemistry company?

Why is it that we think more about what we put in our bodies than what we put on our bodies? This was a question that Beck Lacouture asked herself when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her twenties and was looking for answers. Fortunately, after Lacouture made it through her cancer diagnosis, she and her business partner Greg Altman set out to start Evolved By Nature, a green chemistry company that reinvents silk in liquid form to replace harmful ingredients in skincare and textile products. In this episode, we sat down with Lacouture to hear about her inspiring journey from cancer survivor to green chemistry entrepreneur, including how she had two children in the first five years of her new business.
