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.

The Slightly Greener Method gives you small, actionable changes you can easily make in your pantry, medicine cabinet, and under your kitchen sink—without breaking the bank or upending your life. 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?; and how can I make sure my kids and pets are safe while also keeping a squeaky clean house?

It's never too soon (or too late) to start your slightly greener journey!
