Next Stop? Adventure!
From young breast cancer survivor and mainstream mom to national protector-and-educator of women’s “eco- health,” Kristi Marsh is the founder of the Savvy Women's Alliance and Choose Wiser. Here she weaves real life emotions and humor into a meaty, must-know mesmerizing climate of environmental health - and what is ahead for all of us.
"As an author, a protector and an advocate of health, I am here to tell you today that there is a bone-chilling dark cloud of gravity - like never before - in our movement. We are in a vicious hailstorm like never before."

"A small group of committed citizens is no longer enough. Thousands and thousands of thoughtful, brave committed citizens have to choose to come together and protect fiercely. That is where we are right now. "
Expanding on her points:
1. "We CHOOSE to fiercely protect our fundamental, unalienable right to protect our health. Period."
Doing nothing no longer equates neutrality. Doing nothing is a slide backwards. We have to actively move forward with intention. Just beginning to learn about environmental health? Explore here:
2. "We ACTIVATE a small community around us and infuse our circles with ideas and sharing."
Chapters are informal communities that are as simple as five or more women getting together at least five times a year. During our Gatherings women share stories, exchange tips and tricks, provide nonjudgmental support, and have fun, all in the name of simplifying their journey toward nontoxic living.
3. "Then, we move forward like never before."
