See What You Missed
GatherGreen is proud to announce our sponsorship of our third Green Gathering with a special evening devoted to examining, understanding, and doing something about the potential health hazards posed by the many chemicals, cleansers and cosmetics found in a typical family’s household. At the end of the evening we hope to leave you empowered with not only better and cheaper but also greener and healthier alternatives to keeping you, your family, and your entire home healthy and beautiful.
We start the evening with Annie Leonard’s newest short, the Story of Cosmetics, followed by our private screening of feature length documentary film, Chemerical: Redefining Clean for a New Generation, and conclude with an expert discussion and question and answer session entitled, Toxins, Your Health, and the Answers - lead by Rachel Avalon -- Certified Holistic Nutritionist and 2009 Project Green Search Winner.
One lucky attendee will win a wonderful gift basket from Golden Path Alchemy, creators of a wonderful line of holistic herbal skin care. There is no fee to attend this event but we do hope you will kindly donate to our wonderful hosts for the evening, the Burbank Green Alliance, championing the City’s march toward sustainability and zero waste.

ABOUT THE FILM
Chemerical follows a family's three-month journey to live without chemical-based household and personal care items.The film explores the life cycle of everyday household cleaners and hygiene products to prove that, thanks to our clean obsession, we are drowning in a sea of toxicity. It tells a shocking tale about the products we use to clean our homes and bodies.
The film addresses the following questions:
"If you're looking for inspiration to green your home, Chemerical is the motivation you've been waiting for."
"This is a wondeful story that we all can learn from and apply in our own lives, making changes that benefit us personally and our environment, which we all rely on for our survival."
