Going green for moms who want to keep their favorite mascara…

Hi, Tonya here! I’m the founder of Slightly Greener, created for moms who prefer the light approach to detoxifying life with kids.

If you want to go slightly greener, whether that means…

  • Changing your laundry detergent
  • Switching to organic veggies
  • Buying less processed snacks

….Or (as I do) wearing a non-toxic mascara on week-days, and using a kinda toxic, but oh-so-good one when you go out…

…This is YOUR online hub for learning about toxins – in a way that’s simple, FUN and without me scaring the poptarts out of ya! (pinky promise).

Maybe you landed here because you read some super scary articles, and you’re wondering “honestly, where do I even begin?!” (click here for my Detox Starters Kit, filled with simple tweaks you can make today)

Maybe you just had a call from school to inform you they’re about to test your kid for ADHD, learning disabilities or other “disorders” (hop over this post, where I tell you all about how I averted a ADHD diagnoses through changing some of the foods my son was eating).

Maybe you’re experiencing a health issue yourself. You’re already feeling overwhelmed and worried. Now you need a non-judgemental place to learn and community to tap into (join our close-knit FB group here).

Whatever your story, whatever your shade of green…
here is to your Slightly Greener tomorrow!


Formaldehyde in *gulp* baby shampoo? Flame retardants found in Mommy’s breast milk? Significantly high doses of chemicals found in indoor dust…

It’s enough to go a little ca-razy.

Maybe you’re fantasizing about grabbing a garbage bag and going through the home (and this has to go, and this I’m tossing…yeah, sorry honey, but your favorite toy has toxins all over it too!).

And maybe you’re wondering…

What’s it gonna cost to replace my entire pantry, ditch $165 worth of cosmetics I just splurged on, and tell the kiddos:

We’re skipping vacay this year, but look!
We’ll be eating organic rice!

You want the very best for your kids.

And you might be wondering….

· ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, what the heck is going on?!
· What can I do to keep my kids safe?
· If not the labels, who can I trust?

Here’s my super honest advice to you…

What to do instead?

Stop wondering who to trust!

Unlike other “experts”, I have a Masters in Science, a Board Certification in Holistic Nutrition and several certificates in environmental health.

That means I understand what toxins do to the human body: what toxins to take out when your kid suffers from a rash… what dietary changes to make in case of ADHD… and so much more. And besides being a bit of a mad professor?

I’m a busy, budget-conscious mom, just like you.

That’s why I wrapped up my unbiased, science-backed answers into doable solutions you can apply today – without giving up your lifestyle. Step-by-step strategies for reducing toxins that don’t involve…

  •   DIY-ing all your personal care products (Seriously… who’s got time for that?!)
  •   Waving buh-bye to your favorite perfume or mascara (Confession: I didn’t)
  •   Throwing out all your kids’ plastic toys (Including *sigh* rubber ducky)
  •   Spending $1500/m on health store foods (When you win the Jackpot. Maybe)
  •  Cleaning the windows with onions (Really?!)


Here’s what I believe:

“Toxin-free” is unattainable. And you’ll drive yourself and your family NUTS trying to get there.

My approach?

Simple. Doable. Mom-friendly:

Replace your most consumed, most toxic products first.

Take it from there. One step at a time.
