The Good Hippie
Emily McNabb Butler (she/her) moved to Austin in 2012 after receiving her BFA in dance performance and living in NYC. When she returned to Texas, she wanted to focus on holistic approaches to health, self-care, and bodywork, so that she could continue dancing professionally. Dance is hard on your mind and body, and it was important to Emily to take care of herself first: a novelty in the dance community! Now, she owns The Good Hippie with a mission to educate people on the harms of the "big guys" on your body and the planet.
What inspired The Good Hippie?
In 2012, when I met the founder of The Good Hippie, she was working at the front desk of a massage/chiropractic office, and we became fast friends! Several years later, in 2018, the founder wanted to move on with her other business ventures. When she told me she was considering selling the company, I insisted the company stay "in the family," and bought it from her! That is when I retired from the stage and took on the mission of providing affordable, all natural, clean products for mind, body, home, and planet.
How would you describe The Good Hippie to a friend?
What are your individual core values?
Honesty and transparency. There is no such thing as a "miracle product," yet the beauty and wellness industry has trained us to believe that products can be the panacea for all that ails us. Our health goes beyond that; manage your stress, eat better, drink water, and lessen your exposure to chemicals and ingredients that are slowly killing you.
