2020 was a challenge, of course.  But here at NTE we were still able to produce over 30 quality episodes of the show.  So with that, Jay and I decided to produce a 'Best of 2020' for you all to enjoy.  It is OUR distinct honor to be able to enter your home, car or headphones throughout the year, and we thank you so so much for listening. Bring on 2021 !!

Just can't believe how fast Thanksgiving is upon us this year, but with how strange 2020 has been for all of us, I guess I can't be surprised.  Jay and I do this episode every year...talking about what we are thankful for.  Of course, our families, employees, friends and neighbors who have been so supportive this year.  But from a Non Toxic Environments perspective, this really has been a wonderful year.

Non Toxic Environments Home Health & Wellness

If I'm building a home, should I be choosing natural building materials or man-made, synthetic ones?  The answer is really not as easy as you think.  Remember this...just because something is natural, it doesn't automatically make it safe for you and your family.  Just ask anyone who used to work in the asbestos industry.  Jay and I have a great one on one discussion about natural ingredients and natural aromas vs synthetic and odor-less ingredients.  Thanks for listening!

Great to be back after a week of hiking the Appalachian Trial.  So beautiful and relaxing.  This week I'm sharing a few listener calls with you so I can answer their questions on air.  Hopefully, these will resonate with things you're thinking about as well.  New home building costs, sealing wood smells, etc.  Thanks for listening!

Jay and I talk about several topics today.  Caulking & painting techniques, how-to and how not to "cut-in" a wall, and most important, a frank discussion about the state of the retail home improvement industry.  I know you want your project done right away, but there are many reasons why that may not happen, and none of these reasons are the fault of your retailer.  So, put on some Enya, grab a hot green tea and relax. Things will get back to normal soon.

Jay and I hear the same thing every single week... "why does my contractor (or spouse) fight me on my healthy home choices?"  Whether its lack of respect, lack of confidence or just a breakdown in communication, some people will just fight the adoption of materials that are new to them.  This episode is a very frank on honest conversation about this and how to move forward.
