      "Invisible Hand" is a new, inspiring documentary showing how the people of a small town fight back against corporate interests. Many federal, state, and local laws prohibit people from protecting their air, water, land, and ecosystems. Laws and regulatory agencies aren't there to protect us; they regulate the amount of harm we will experience and issue permits to permit the harm. Email me for the link.

MORE TO COME ... PLEASE STAY TUNED!

In-Person Events: Fragrance-Free Tips
HELP REDUCE INDOOR AIR POLLUTION & HELP ALL BREATHE EASY
Those wearing strong scent may be turned away. Please help us make this event available to me and others with chemical sensitivities by keeping your clothes, body, and hair fragrance-free. For the full list, see my website; some of the biggest offenders are

  • laundry products (detergents, fabric softeners, dryer sheets);
  • cosmetics and hair products (scented shampoos, conditioners, gel, mousse);
  • scented moisturizers; and
  • incense, essential oils.
Note: "Natural" and "organic" products are still loaded with fragrance.

EASY HAIR TIP! If you don't want to switch to a fragrance-free or "free and clear" shampoo and hair products, try wearing a scarf or shower cap that completely covers your hair. If you prefer, you can wash your hair using no scented shampoo, just a tablespoon of baking soda gently massaged into your scalp and rinsed well, followed after rinsing with 1 tablespoon of apple cider or other vinegar in a cup of water.

EASY CLOTHES TIP! If you don't want to switch to a non-scented detergent with "free and clear" on the label, many people find it simplest to set aside clothes to wear here that have been through a special wash of 1 cup baking soda OR one cup of vinegar (don't use both in the same washload) to remove the worst of the fragrance. Use just baking soda and water, no detergent, unless it's labeled "Free and Clear", and no softener or dryer sheets. Some scent will still be present, as it takes many washings to remove the fragrance, but it's usually good enough. Once washed with soda, you can store the clothes in a tightly closed box or plastic bag away from fragrant clothes or in the trunk of your car if you have one.


What is "Sliding Scale?" "Sliding scale" allows you to select the price that's most appropriate for your budget and situation within the given range. For example, if the workshop fee is $60-$95, you could pay $60 or $75 or $90 or $95. Those who pay at the higher levels are making a donation to help those in financial need. Please remember that for a sliding scale to work, we need the same number of people with means to generously pay more to balance the needs of those who can afford less.
