Hello and welcome!

This blog is for all people who want a healthy planet and aspire to healthy living.  It is a story about a better future and a rebuttal to some kinds of unnecessary suffering.

My name is Heather Ferris.  Heather’s short bio

It is an incredible time to be alive. People around the world are connecting through the internet and supporting each other. We are in a burst of innovation due to the information sharing.  We are making science and technology breakthroughs around the world at a breathtaking rate. And I believe we will win this fight against the dangerous proliferation of toxic pollutants in our environment.

“I believe our grandchildren will look back on us now and marvel that our economy was once dependant on chemicals that were killing the planet and killing ourselves and they will think of it as unthinkable.” 

Sandra Steingraber, Living Downstream.

A Mission with Four Parts

Mission, Part 1: Help protect you from unnecessary toxic exposure. (Do No Harm)       Like This!

Unnecessary toxic exposure includes exposure to chemicals that effect reproductive health and fetal brain development, and/or are known and suspected carcinogens. Many illnesses and disabilities that are linked to toxic exposure (prenatal and other) CAN be prevented.  Changing our habits may seem like a huge inconvenience. It is not always easy to tell what labels are dishonest and misleading.  However, in the end, learning about and changing to healthier habits is highly worth our while. The goal of the Nurture Nature Project is to make your transition that little bit easier. See: Truth About the Chemicals in Our Products

Mission, Part 2: Prevent Eco & Human-Degenerative Systems (Do No Harm).

  • Fossil Fuel DivestmentThis American Life
  • Stop Keystone XL: Keystone XL is game over for climate. The time to stop fossil fuel burning and start using renewable clean energy is yesterday.
  • Support fight for clean energy:  There is no such thing as clean coal. There is no such thing as a clean oil burning. We are deeply damaging our environment. The time for change is now.
  • Campaign for commercial free childhood: Commercials brainwash our children with unhealthy messages.

Mission, Part 3: Support sustainable regenerative systems

Protecting life on earth requires us to go beyond systems that merely minimize damage and switch to systems that leave our planet and people restored to their natural healthy state, or, a higher, better state. Regenerative Systems are sustainable world improvement systems.

  • Farm Bill


  • formed or created again
  • spiritually reborn or converted
  • restored to a better, higher, or more worthy state

Mission, Part 4: Support kindness, equality, peace, and justice for all people, and freedom that is bound to fair treatment of “thy neighbor”.


Many of the Nurture Nature Project posts are dedicated to spreading the word about the EWG ‘s research findings. Other important sources include

The Toxics Prevention Tribe on Twitter

There is an amazing tribe of people and organizations fighting to increase public awareness about toxics in our environment, our food, and our products. This environmental human rights movement is growing exponentially and with this growth comes the power to change policy. It is an exhilarating time. If you use Twitter here are just a few accounts of some amazing leaders and participants in this movement:

@EWGtoxics, @PeteMyers, @saferstates, @saferchemicals, @MountSinaiCEHC, @WA_Toxics, @CSPI, @healthy_child, @LisaPJackson, @safecosmetics,@foodandwater, @EWGFoodNews

More of the tribe ; )

Integrative Doctors

@DrGreene, @DrWeil, @MarkHymanMD, @DrGottfried

Cancer Survivors

@Britta_Aragon, @Kris_Carr

Amazing mothers!

@Non_Toxic_Kids, @thesoftlanding, @safemama, @thesmartmama, @YourOrganicLife, @Greenandhealthy, @unhealthytruth


@LizSzabo, @CHogue, @SarahJNRDC

And more

@changeca, @RhondaSherwood, @healthylegacy, @plasticpollutes, @4EnviroHealth,  @women4earth, @liveablefuture, @JanetBCF, @preventharm, @nontoxicissexy,

These are just a few of the many who are fighting for a safer world for all of us.


NOTE 1: This blog is about protecting and nurturing our loved ones by informing and encouraging safer and healthier choices.  Although sometimes I write about products, including toxin-free cosmetics, this blog is NOT about acquiring more material stuff, feeding vanity, or exploiting any obsession with the fountain of youth.  (hard knocks I know! ; )

NOTE 2: My opinion cannot be bought. I write about products that meet the Nurture Nature Project standard for protection of people and earth. If you have a great, truly toxin-free, truly effective, truly eco-intelligent product or have heard about a new one, email me! I am more than happy to spread the word about exceptional products and companies!

The Nurture Nature Project is dedicated to my brother John.

Love is all that matters in the end and

love is kind.

Thank you for visiting!

  2. My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

    The promotion of how buildings should now be built using green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important.

    • Hi Bill, I have added your link to the Survivor Resources tab above. I had a family member who died from asbestos exposure. So, I am grateful for the work you do and happy to add your link to this site.
