“I appreciate all of the hard work Leigh has put into making this course. There’s so much information out there everywhere and not enough time to dig through it all, especially when you’re trying to get ready for a baby’s arrival at the same time. She brings up facts and points that I wouldn’t have ever thought twice about before, and you can tell she’s really passionate about this subject.” – Jessica Reed
Meet your instructor
I’m Leigh Matthews, head of research here at Leaf Score. For more than 15 years I’ve been working in the natural health sector. Learning about potentially-toxic chemicals in everyday household products has been a huge eye-opener for me. I’ve long favored natural products over synthetic and avoided household cleaners packed full of toxic chemicals, but even I have been shocked by the greenwashing used to market so-called “safe and eco-friendly” homewares and personal care products.
I am a zero-waste, self-sufficiency advocate, and an environmentalist. I have completed courses on Chemicals and Health from Johns Hopkins University, and Sustainable Materials Management from Lund University.
I want to put my knowledge and experience to use for you, so that you can safely welcome your baby home to an environment that’s conducive to their growth and wellbeing.
