How do you make a safe and effective all-purpose cleaning spray, a creamy scrub and a wood reconditioner? With the DIY Natural Spring Cleaning Products workshop by Anarres Natural Health, of course. As a participant, you'll go home with your very own set of easy-to-make cleaning products (plus recipes) that have been tested for effectiveness and are good for your health and the environment! Bring empty spritzer and squeeze bottles for yourself and to share.
Open to all ages. Karma Co-op Members as well as the general public are welcome to sign up and attend. This workshop is part of a year-long series of Anarres workshops for 2024, with different topics on the second Sundays of each month.
Reserve your spot and sign up now. Space is limited to 10 participants.
Please wear a mask for the safety of all the participants.
We may meet outdoors at the picnic table if the weather is fine!

A: There will be up to 11 of us in the small Member's Room for 90 minutes. In order to reduce the chances of us sharing ANY virus, and to make this event accessible to those with health concerns, I take the responsibility to require that each participant wear a mask over their mouth and nose.

Conventional cleaning products carry risks such as respiratory problems, hormone disruption, and even cancer! NEVER need to buy another unhealthy cleaner or even an eco cleaner in single-use packaging! As a participant, you'll learn to use simple inexpensive ingredients such as water, vinegar, oil, baking soda, and essential oils, and go home with your very own set of easy-to-make cleaning products (plus recipes) that have been tested for effectiveness and are good for your health and the environment!

You'll make and go home with:
* Creamy Soft Scrub in a 150ml metal screw top canister
* All Purpose Spray in a 250mL refillable glass spray bottle
* Wood Cleaner in a 120mL refillable spray bottle

I was inspired by The Do-It-Yourself green cleaning party developed by Women's Voices for the Earth, an inspiring women's environmental health organization working to educate consumers about chemicals in cleaning products.

As an experiment, in order to gather as many people together who want to learn,
and in the hopes of earning a living wage,
I am offering my introductory workshops for a limited time

GROUP RATES: *$20 minimum commitment per participant is the group rate.
When you register 3 or more participants, I will adjust your rate to $20 each.
If you or your participants can afford more, please bring an honorarium to the workshop.
