Reaching beyond the converted

Driven by their passion for healthier living, Michelle Bartlett and Fiona White are hoping the Positive Change event to be held in Bournemouth on July 1st will educate people and inspire them towards a better way of life.

“We just want people to wake up to how poisonous our world is – there are chemicals in so many everyday household products, not to mention the food we eat, as well as cosmetics, packaging and cleaning products. I’m 46 now and reasonably healthy, but I wish I had learned what I know now ten years ago because I’d be so much more likely to still be healthy 10 or 20 years from now – and so would my family,” Michelle says.

Positive Change return to Bournemouth and will be held at the 30 Life Begins

Carrington House Hotel. It’s planned to be the biggest Postitive Change event so far and is running all day from 10am until 6pm.

“We don’t just want to talk to the converted, we want to raise the issues and awaken an interest in new people as well. You don’t have to make big changes to start being healthier and greener – anyone can clean their house with lemon juice and vinegar – and organic doesn’t have to be expensive. It’s all about taking that first step towards a better life” says Fiona.

Tickets for Positive Change are available now from priced £10 to include a goody bag, programme, guest speakers, short talks and more than 40 exhibits.
