One of the most important aspects of health: the toxins that lurk within all of our homes.

Environmental toxicity stresses our immune systems, makes us prone to allergies, and more. In this workshop we will cover simple but essential swaps, updates, and in many cases, the need to just stop using certain chemicals and materials in our homes. We’ll cover everything from dryer sheets, to body products, water systems and more!

Online class conducted via Zoom.
