About Gay Browne

Environmental Health Advisor and Author of Living With a Green Heart. Gay has made it her life’s mission to educate people on how to lead a greener, healthier life and how to leave a lighter footprint on this earth, and the book is a guide to educate and implement.

When her son was diagnosed with ailments attributable to astounding levels of toxins in his body, Gay set out on a journey that led her to become an environmental pioneer. In 1994, even before the US Green Building Council established the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) guidelines for environmental building verification, Gay created what she calls “an optimal personal environmental health space.” She began designing and constructing the first completely environmentally responsible home of its kind. She’s also the founder of Greenopia, a company dedicated to achieving personal and community environmental health through small and large habit and behavioral adjustments. Greenopia is a comprehensive, best-selling series of city-by-city guidebooks listing local eco-friendly resources.

“Environmental issues have long been a concern for millions of people, but it is easy to feel disempowered and overwhelmed. In With a Green Heart,” Browne shares a roadmap for making incremental changes that will ultimately affect cumulative environmental change. She shifts the conversation from large-scale environmental issues to individual ones that promote personal environmental health.
