30 Day Challenge – March 2014 Day 27: a sensitive issue

So, I realized a few years ago, while doing a trade show, that people have an attachment to their microwaves. I was at a booth at the Home Show in Winnipeg, where we asked people about the toxicity levels in their homes. We had a piece of fibre-board, a teflon frying pan, oven cleaner and a microwave.

30 Day Challenge – March 2014 Day 23: Detox

Detoxification is easier when it’s a daily process.
