To help people see that what they don’t know about common products & practices can hurt them. To empower people to find healthier alternatives to common toxins and to create a low carbon lifestyle.
Without a clean environment, life on earth, human or otherwise, is unsustainable. Therefore, since it is critical for the continuation of life and human health, Green Inside and Out seeks to educate people on how best to protect themselves and the environment for the benefit of all.
