The average American spends 93% of their life indoors*. Six in ten adults have at least one chronic disease and more than 40% of children have at least one chronic illness, with some experts predicting that percentage could grow to 80% by 2025.
Is your home working for you or against you?
Countless household and personal care products contain ingredients that contribute to negative reproductive and development outcomes, have carcinogenic effects (increase cancer risk), cause respiratory damage or disrupt hormones. From the way we cook and store our food, clean our clothes and our walls and our windows- it all either adds to your toxic load or lowers it. From air quality and water purity to toothpaste and shampoo and even your bedding- everything has potential to work for you or could be one more thing increasing your toxic load.
We have very little control over our external environment but you CAN control what enters and exits your home. As the gatekeeper of your home, you have the ability to lower your toxic burden in a way that positively supports your health and has lasting generational impact.
Making safer swaps is a far cry from simple. Will these safer products actually work? Are they actually safer or have I just been fooled by a clever label? It can all feel overwhelming and for most of us lead to analysis paralysis with very little true change being made. That’s where I come in! My job and joy is to make all the safer sustainable swaps for you while you get to sit back, sip and savor without batting an eye. A healthy home is a happy home and it would be an honor to lead you through this safer swap journey!
