Healthy Green Schools’ Jennifer Hankey Gives Her Best Advice

Jennifer Hankey from Health Green Schools is here to share her positive resolution advice!

Hankey, Jennifer_cred The Studio SarmientoWhat was your resolution?

I was diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder when six weeks pregnant with my first child. This led me to question: What could I do to give her the best chance? This was five years ago and has led me on an eye-opening journey to eliminating toxic chemicals from my life.

What positive changes have resulted from you achieving your resolution?

I have created a healthy home free of toxins (or what I can control) for my children and family. We have seen the health benefits of avoiding toxic chemicals and opting for healthy and organic foods. And ultimately it led to the creation of Healthy Green Schools, my organization that removes toxic chemicals from schools and sets up healthy food guidelines.

After conquering this goal, what’s your resolution for 2015?

I hope that 2015 leads to exponential growth in the program, leading to positive, sustainable changes in all Atlanta schools.
