Being just slightly greener can have a big impact on your health and happiness!
Creating a healthy, non-toxic home often feels like a losing battle. When it seems like everything is bad for you, from pesticides in your produce to flame retardants in your mattress, it's hard to get motivated to change. That's where board-certified holistic nutritionist Tonya Harris's motto comes in: you only have to make little adjustments to have a big impact on your health.

By focusing on mico-habits you can build over time and the gradual introduction of safer products, Harris guides you along a roadmap to a greener, more environmentally-friendly lifestyle that can help protect you and your families' health long-term, and answers questions such as:What does "organic" really mean?Which of the unpronounceable chemicals listed on the back of my shampoo bottle might be toxic?Do I really need to throw away expired makeup?Why aren't companies always required to list toxic ingredients on their product labels?How can I make sure my kids and pets are safe while also keeping a squeaky clean house?
