Many households are becoming more eco-conscious, but don't realize how much of what they buy is toxic. Sophia Ruan Gushée wants to change that — and now, she's sharing her secrets with the Easemakers community.

Sophia Ruan Gushée wants to help households avoid toxic exposures from everyday items, like cleaning materials, beauty products, technology and more. Toxic exposures are linked to health complications ranging from allergies to fertility challenges to cancer. Detoxing might sound like a time-consuming challenge, but Sophia has found practical ways to help you start the process quickly and easily.

Now, she’s sharing her tips in an ask me anything (AMA) conversation with Easemakers community on Wednesday, April 6, at 12pm ET.

Whether you’re working on a new build, managing a renovation, looking for healthier housekeeping products, or supporting a health-conscious household, this conversation will inspire you and give you detoxing tips that are reasonable and achievable.

Join us to learn:

  • Sophia’s pillars for avoiding toxic exposures
  • Go-to resources for gauging what’s toxic and what’s not
  • Simple ways to create a healthier home

Sophia will share her tips for estate managers, and then we’ll open the conversation up for questions. This is an interactive Q&A, so we hope you’ll bring questions and take the conversation in any direction you’d like.
