ABOUT elle

Elle started WUM after searching for how-to videos as a new mom and wanting more. A digital media veteran, she reconnected with Stanford classmate, Meg Resnikoff and the rest is (well-documented) history. In addition to directing videos for companies such as Motts, Disney, Kohler, Glad and frequently serving a YouTube brand panelist, Elle is extremely passionate about helping other moms share their well-earned expertise. Her favorite comment is “That’s my life too!” and is thankful for how WUM’s growing network of influencers have added to her own parenting experience. Elle’s daughter Presley (4), son Ford (2), and her (usually cooperative) husband Ross are often featured in her Tips and Day-In-Life vlogs.

  1. Wow. Where I live, in a city in Sweden. We are recycling everything. We have a compost, and like all paper, boxes, metallic tins and so on. But if I don't remember wrong Sweden is one of the best in terms of recycling

  2. I was really surprised that composting was not sth you did already because here in Germany it has been a thing for quite some time I think. We have been composting our garden for as long as I can remember (I'm 18). And I think it is a law to separate your trash into paper, plastic, general rubbish and biodegradable materials like egg shells or banana skin. Waste seperation is controlled here and if you don't seperate peoperly you have to pay the high transport and seperation costs. Not sure about how this is in other countries it's just what I know about it here in Germany
