products or home cleansers. Jessica has spent years researching
environmental toxins and ways to avoid them, while finding excellent,
safe and cost-effective alternatives for you and your family. Jessica
will work with you personally to find solutions for your specific needs,
i.e., preparing a nursery, protecting the environment, kitchen and
bathroom safety, furniture, pregnancy, infant, baby and child products,
clothing, toy safety and more.
In 2004, Jessica Semmel, founder of Living Green NYC, read an article
about a home made completely of non-toxic materials. This article
resonated with her. She did more research, learning about the dangerous
toxins that surround us everyday. Starting in 2005, slowly and
methodically she made her home non-toxic. It seemed daunting at first,
but she looked at her situation (renting an apartment in NYC) and she
came up with a plan. Before her son was born in 2008, she looked around her
apartment and realized that everything was safe. Jessica wants to share
that experience with you. Jessica says it wasn't overnight but getting
there and staying there is a wonderful place to be. "There is so much
more research now. There are so many more products available." She went
on a gut feeling from one article and now the research is plentiful and
frightening. Please take this wonderful journey of creating a safe,
non-toxic home for you and your family with Living Green NYC™.
