Environmental health, inequities, and perfectionism w/ Hannah Gardener
Motherhood is the impetus for a lot of changes in our lives. One common one is to create a healthier home for those little beings entering it.
Today's guest, Dr. Hannah Gardener, became more interested in environmental health during her first pregnancy. Since, she has become a healthy home consultant who I have turned to for advisement on purchasing decisions. She runs an amazing Facebook group where she shares her levelheaded recommendations and opinions on products and situations that the members experience.
In this episode, Hannah shares about her work and gives a comprehensive list of low cost and simply ways to lower environmental toxins and create a healthier home. We also speak about the intersection of social justice and environmental health, the disproportionate amount of women doing the emotional labor of creating healthier changes and how to combat perfectionism when it comes to living a healthier life.
If you are on board with creating a healthier home, you don't want to miss this episode!
