In 2010 Kirsten was on maternity leave with her third child, firmly established in suburbia, and needed an outlet for her passion for the environment & sustainable living. Thus Sustainable Suburbia was born.
In 2013 she took a redundancy from her public service job and completed her book,
, and made a PDF copy available for Less Toxic Living: How to Reduce Your Everyday Exposure to Toxic Chemicals free download. By popular request she later created a kindle version (and it's available in paperback too).
In 2014 she became a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant, and found a new way to pursue her passion, teaching small groups of (mostly) women about how to get rid of many of the toxic chemicals in their homes.
In 2015 she discovered it could be even more rewarding to help other women pursue their goals, when she became a leader with Norwex.
In 2019 she plans to help even more people to ditch the nasty chemicals and in some cases to start teaching others to do the same. She hopes to bring many more people into the Norwex family. She also hopes to find time to produce a 2nd edition of
Less Toxic Living.
