Anna Turns: Go Toxic Free
Date/Time: Saturday 4 February 2023 18:30-19:30
Session No: 22
We’re all aware of how plastic pollution is damaging our planet. But just as concerning is the invisible world of chemical pollutants – in the soil, the air, our water systems and our own bodies. Using the ‘small change, big difference’ approach, environmental journalist Anna Turns shows us how to reduce our toxic burden on the planet and protect our own health.
Turns explains the wider issue of toxic chemicals – what they are, where they’re hidden and the extent of their environmental impact, revealing the harmful substances that lurk inside our homes, exposing the scam of greenwashing and shining a light on half-truths. Sharing essential swaps and tips to avoid them wherever you can, she gives us the steps to clean up how we live, so nature can have a chance to recover. Be empowered to take positive action today!
