Toxic chemicals in products

Do you work for, or belong to a community, not-for-profit organisation or corporate group that would benefit from knowing how to reduce their exposure to toxic chemicals (including carcinogens) in everyday products?

This session is about what we know about the toxic chemicals in our environment and how they can affect our health and the planet more broadly. This webinar takes you through the research on chemicals in our domestic environment, as well as the things that we still do not know. I discuss the regulations in Australia for chemicals; and teach you how to be proactive in minimising your health risks, by knowing what to look for, and avoid. Participants learn how to scrutinise the ingredients list in many common household products like beauty products, hand sanitisers, perfumes, plastics and cleaning products. I share with you a set of practical actions, tips and resources to empower you to take control of what you can control (within your budget), and how to gradually swap the toxins for healthier alternatives.


Duration: 45 minutes (can be shortened or lengthened, to suit your needs)

What People are Saying

Kind words from people I’ve worked with

Thank you for your presentation. It was very informative and I enjoyed listening to it. I found your reassurance was comforting and the advice both practical and helpful. I felt no pressure to change anything but felt you would support me if I chose to make changes. The 80/20 rule is a very helpful guide. Great advice with lots of safer brand options given. Thank you once again for opening my eyes to all those horrible hidden things out there.
Thank you Carolyn for your Reducing Exposure to Toxins presentation. It was so informative and everyone should be aware of what they are using. I am already implementing changes to move toward a healthier household and family.
Our world is awash in chemicals. Some safe, some not. We place our trust in the hands of manufacturers and regulators to ensure that we are awash in chemicals that are safe. We hope they have our best interests at heart. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. We can mitigate against the instances where the lining of pockets are prioritised over the health and safety of the general population by minimising contact with potential hazards as much as possible. Information and education is key to how we can better protect ourselves. Carolyn highlights some of the more hazardous culprits and walks you through how to identify problematic products. She also demonstrates how we can all err on the side of caution by using safe alternatives for products in our homes and bodies. I greatly appreciated her advice and reminder to be more cautious from hereon.
