Three Chester County residents are among the region’s 2020 Healthistas who have created unique paths in life for themselves, their communities, and the environment, writes Melissa Jacobs for Main Line Today.
Ilka Evans is the owner of Zoet Bathlatier, an apothecary and artisan candle company in Malvern. She makes everything in her extensive line of soaps, body scrubs, fragrances, bath salts, hair products, and candles herself. She uses all-natural, small-batch ingredients.
Her business has been booming since she started it nine years ago.
Meanwhile, Berwyn resident Laura Taylor, the founder and CEO of Mingle Mocktails, quit her job as a high-powered sales executive to become a full-time entrepreneur. It was unexpected but ultimately the right move.
Her line of five non-alcoholic drinks known as Mingle Mocktails is now sold at Wegmans, Acme, and several other supermarkets and specialty stores.
Finally, Richie Graham of Paoli is the photographic ambassador for 1% for the Planet, a nonprofit that raises money for conservation-focused groups around the world. Graham is photographing and documenting the difficult work the organization performs and then donating the proceeds from his photographs to the nonprofit.
