Relive The Night: Dinner & Discussion, Good For Your Life, The Planet & Your Belly

We are constantly inundated with the latest causes of cancer and the connection to the food we eat and elements we’re exposed to in our everyday lives. We’re told to watch out for toxins, chemicals, that we shouldn’t eat meat, use plastic tupperware, or drink the water. We are meant to watch out for pesticides, parabens, GMOs, carcinogens, the list literally goes on and on.

So what can we do about it?! How can we limit our exposure and protect ourselves and our families from the toxins that live literally everywhere from our toothpaste to our food and water?  

Get The People Impact Event, Hosted at Habitas NYC Clubhouse


On July 18th Get The People partnered up with Habitas NYC to host a dinner and discussion to get some answers. Our goal was to cut through all the noise and gain a deeper understanding around what harmful toxins exist in our daily lives and how we can look to limit our exposure, live more sustainably and be empowered to make the right choices for ourselves and our families.

To do this we teamed up with health and wellness advocate and speaker, Christine Dimmick, author of ‘Detox Your Home‘ and CEO/Founder of The Good Home Company, for a little Q&A around how to remove these toxins and bring health into our homes.

For the dinner we of course wanted to walk-the-walk and were thrilled to spotlight Culinary Futurist, Ashley Frunzi who prepared a mouth-watering 4-course iItalian vegan dinner experience.

// THE DINNER //
4-Course Vegan Italian Dinner Experience

We kicked the evening off with a word from the chef! Culinary Futurist Ashley Frunzi shared a bit about her journey and how her older sister was the inspiration and catalyst to her now decade-long career as a personal vegan chef and nutritionist to some of New York’s most influential industry leaders and icons.

Ashley is a true master of creating magical plant-based food that is not only good for our bodies but also the planet. Her advice for introducing healthy foods was simple and attainable – start slow.

The point is to start moving in the right direction. An easy tip for eating vegan food that goes beyond a salad – look to Asian cuisine such as Indian and Thai for delicious flavors, seasoning and sauses that pack a punch for even your most dedicated meat eaters.

Can we say YUM? There was no shortage of nom nom sounds and food dances throughout each course. It was a true foodies experience and evident that Ashley lives and breathes her craft. It is clear she has much to offer in the culinary world and to our own education around how to make smart food choices that are both delicious and sustainable.

With our taste buds buzzing we were eager to dive into the discussion at hand. Our featured speaker and guest, Author of ‘Detox Your Home’ Christine Dimmick began by sharing her incredible story of how she pioneered the movement to natural home cleaning products more than 20 years ago in her NYC kitchen.

The Good Home Company was well on it’s way as a fotune 500 company and Christine thought this was her journey, but as life would have it, this was just the beginning. Not only did she learn that three of her dear friends and family were diagnosed with cancer, but that she herself had breast cancer.

While she was fortunate to have a speedy recovery from cancer, she wasn’t able to move past the overwhelming truths she uncovered during her time in treatment. She was shocked by the number of deadly toxins found in our day-to-day products and in all of our homes. The worst part is no one is properly regulating or watching out for our health and we the consumers are paying the ultimate price.

This information compelled Christine to go on a journey to discover exactly what we are all at risk of being exposed to and share it with the world.

Diving into the Q&A we touched on each major area of her recent book, Detox Your Home, learning about regulations (or the lack there of), food and product labels, detoxing your skin, from face and body creams, beauty and dental products to our kitchen, pesitcides, meat, water, cookware, detergents, cleaners, to our wardrobes, pillows and even our electronics and children’s toys.
