Meet Our Sponsor: Shelby Anderson

Meet our incredible sponsor Shelby Anderson of Beautycounter. This blog post shares all about who Shelby is + what she is doing to make an impact.  


Hi Shelby! Who are you + what is your story? 
I’m a wife, a mom, a business owner and a breast cancer survivor.  Our family had started our change over to a healthier lifestyle about 5 years ago, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It rocked our world, but we were determined to no let it BE our world.  I dug deeper into cleaner living and discovered yoga. It was life changing and had a huge role in my recovery.

Why do you choose to support POP UP YOGA DSM?
As a Des Moines native, it has been so amazing to watch this city grow. I LOVE any and all organizations that give back to the community and POP UP YOGA DSM does just that!

How does the mission of POP UP YOGA DSM align with your core business values
An all around healthier lifestyle is at the core of myself and my business. Beautycounter is about education of ingredients, providing a solution and advocating for legislative change. As a B Corporation, Beautycounter has to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
