Get Green Be Well is the creation of Kimberly Button, a green living enthusiast, journalist, TV correspondent, speaker, editor and founder of greenWell, an eco-wellness consulting company in Orlando, FL. She is the author of The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home (2012, Adams Media).
Button’s passion for natural, non-toxic living results from a childhood of mysterious medical conditions, including cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS), Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) – all before even graduating from college. Because of Button’s previous health concerns and the subsequent battles to find out the cause and cure, her life took on a new mission to live as naturally and toxin-free as possible to nurture good health.
Button now helps families and businesses create greener, healthier living and working environments by providing consultations and speaking engagements through her company, greenWell. She is a Green Living Expert for the nationally syndicated lifestyle TV show, Daytime, which reaches two million viewers in more than 100 major markets. She has appeared on networks such as NBC, FOX, CBS, ION, RTV and My Family Channel.
Her articles on healthy living, eco-travel and sustainability practices have appeared in publications such as Florida Travel + Life and Sierra. She is a Contributing Editor for Organic Buzz Magazine, a publication for the natural health industry trade. Button is the author of the Orlando Green Travel app. For more information on Button’s writing, visit www.kimbutton.com.
Button is a frequent speaker on green and healthy living topics for organizations such as MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), the City of Orlando and the Girl Scouts of America.
Button is a former editor of The Central Florida Green Guide as well as a previous columnist for www.BlessedEarth.org.
Button was awarded the prestigious honor of a 2009 Heart of Green Local Hero Award by Hearst Media’s website The Daily Green.
