Dear Friends, 

With the holiday season in full swing, this issue offers resources to help you and your family thrive during what can be a hectic time. Discover the joys of food with family and friends – with a twist. You’ll find a bounty of delicious recipes in this issue that bring together flavor and healthy ingredients to savor through New Year’s and beyond. For meaningful gifts for the whole family, check out our gift guide sure to please even the pickiest on your list.

As we continue every day to protect kids from environmental toxins, our new research is now published, which suggests that chemicals commonly used in consumer products are being absorbed by pregnant mothers and their newborns. By making these discoveries, we can all make better choices to avoid these exposures.

This research, and other initiatives at the Center, are highlighted in a recent interview on We hope you enjoy seeing a “behind the scenes” update on what we are all so passionate about.

This issue, we also give thanks for all of our Greening The Cleaning® clients, and recognize one of our longstanding partners, the Kaplan Family Hospice Residence in New York. 

We hope this season brings you and yours a truly healthy start to 2018.

My Best,
Deirdre Imus
