Growing Green Families teaches simple strategies for families to "go green" and reduce their exposure to toxins.

Many families worry about the effects of environmental toxins on their families, but do not know how to reduce toxicity in their homes. Donna Walls first became interested in natural living after she had her children. As a nurse, she began to question the standard ways of healing, and sought out more natural approaches. After her children were grown, she became a Master Herbalist, and started quietly educating her clients about more natural ways to live. She wrote her book, Growing Green Families: A Guide for Natural Families and Healthy Homes,so she could get the word out to a wider audience.

“My life became greener, expanding into teaching and preaching about the glories of natural cleaning, natural and herbal healing, and healthy food choices. I have a burning need to have more people listen, hear, and take action. Hopefully this book will help others on this path for a cleaner, healthier planet.”

When it comes to keeping families safe, every bit counts. Growing Green Families gives readers the tools they need to make that first step towards a healthier lifestyle.
