Yay spring is here finally! The energy shift is palpable and it’s the perfect time to make simple changes that can have a huge impact on your health and the environment.
One simple step towards creating a healthy “green” home is by looking at the things you come in contact with on a daily basis. After being diagnosed with breast cancer over five years ago I re-evaluated the chemicals within my home. The first chemical I started with was plastic. There is a chemical in plastic called “Bispenol-a” or “BPA” that has been shown to leach into the bloodstream affecting hormone levels and since my cancer was hormone related I thought it was best to take control over things I come in contact with in my own home. Once I started looking around my kitchen I realized how many things contained BPA and it wasn’t only the plastic items, I discovered I had some canned items too.
