Thank you for taking interest in our website. 

In my journey I learned that the chemicals we are surrounded with, be it in food, personal care, cosmetics, cleaning, building, art products, to name just a few of them, are not regulated and not tested for safety in most cases. 

Our health is at stake and the one of our children is even more vulnerable to those toxins. We need to be able to identify the unseen dangers. Knowledge is key and applying the learned is crucial.

I do believe we are responsible to provide our children with a toxin free and safe environment where ever  they play, learn, eat and sleep and including their learning environment away from home.
