Event Description

Environmentally friendly. Sustainable. Green. Eco-friendly.


All incredibly important concepts garnering awareness in both the building industry and with the general public. However, where more education needs to occur is on the seriousness of the effects that environmental chemicals have on our health. In the U.S. alone it is estimated that 13% of disease is attributed to the environment and yet exposure to chemicals is rarely mentioned in initiatives to combat chronic disease.

Scientists found an average of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns including pesticides, flame retardants, consumer product ingredients, and industrial pollutants. And that's just the beginning. Exposure to contaminants continues thereafter on a daily basis creating a "body burden" or, simply put, an accumulated slurry of chemicals stored in our bodies.

The goal of this presentation is to create a greater understanding of how environmental chemicals affect not only the health of the planet and the built environment, but also how they affect our bodies. There is no prerequisite knowledge required. My dream would be that every young Millennial hear this presentation for the sake of the health of their future children and grandchildren.

BONUS - Be entered into a live drawing for a copy of Cindy Klement's book 'Your Body's Environmental Chemical Burden' - ONLY AVAILABLE to those that attend the LIVE webinar.
