Gay is intensely passionate about environmental health. She created Greenopia as an answer to her family’s environmental health challenges.
As a mother of three, she needed a fast, reliable, and easy to use solution for healthy daily living. After spending 15 years in the media, and building the first pre-LEED certified home in LA in 1994, she realized that there was a wealth of green options, but no simple credible source for locating them.
In addition to being an intrepid female founder, she is an environmental health consultant, speaker and author of Living With a Green Heart: How to Keep Your Body, Your Home and the Planet Healthy in a Toxic World (April 2019), a roadmap for making incremental changes that will not only transform your life, but heal the world we share. From the home to the office, from the foods we eat to the clothes we wear, Living With a Green Heart prescribes a set of simple, holistic steps you can take today that will improve your Personal Environmental Health, and help you stop feeling overwhelmed and start making a difference.
