In this episode I talk with Emma Rohmann. Environmental Engineer, Home Detox Expert and mom of 2!
Emma has spent over a decade working in the green building field and now helps parents and parents-to-be make healthier choices by providing practical and judgement-free advice, support, and product recommendations. There is a ton of information – and misinformation – out there when it comes to toxins in the products you use every day. This can make it almost impossible to figure out how to create a healthy home without feeling completely overwhelmed.
Emma believes that healthy, green living can be simple and practical and shares tons of tips on how to make it so!
See some highlights from her biography below!
"Green at Home began while I was on mat leave with my second child. I had been living green in my own home for 15 years, but wanted to find ways of living a greener life on a two-kid budget. When I began to research options, I found that there was a lack of balanced information out there – businesses were saying one thing and environmental groups were saying another.
I saw a need for a practical, impartial voice to help cut through the noise and make sense of the research.
Green at Home began as a blog – a place where I could consolidate and share balanced information as I researched green living and made changes in my own life.
The catalyst for turning this passion project into a business was being recruited by the David Suzuki program to join its ‘Queen of Green’ coaching program. As part of that experience, I helped six families green their homes and reduce their exposure to toxins. The work was so fulfilling and inspiring – I knew I had to find a way to do the same for other families.
Since then I’ve led dozens of workshops and helped many clients create greener homes and businesses.
I’ve also upped my continuing education game, having successfully completed:
I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my expertise with like-minded organizations, including:
My goal through all that I do is, first and foremost, to provide practical, balanced, relevant information that will help you move the dial and and make healthier choices – and to do it in a friendly and approachable way.
I am SO excited to share this conversation with you and hope that you will learn as much as I did!
