Join us for our final Essential Series of the season on Green & Non-Toxic Living.
More and more, we want to know about what we’re eating, what we’re buying, and what all those mystery ingredients in our baby shampoo and products are.
Being green has become such an industry, there are now lots of examples of “greenwashing” – products that claim to be natural for you…but are not.
There there’s all the BPA, Pthalates, and other chemicals we know we should avoid…but are there more?
At this Essential Series, we’ll listen to Green Famillies Guru, Tracy Lydiatt, who will give us an overview on the basics to “greening” your home in a practical and economical manner. She’ll also give us some basics for savvy label reading (so we know what to avoid!), and we’ll create a group resource for non-toxic guidelines we can all use.
